Glenn Rifkin is a veteran journalist and author who has been a regular contributor to the New York Times for nearly 30 years. His newest book is Future Forward: Leadership Lessons from Patrick McGovern, the Visionary Who Circled the Globe and Built a Technology Media Empire.  In addition to his business writings, Glenn has also written obituaries for The New York Times for the last ten years. I hope you enjoy this fascinating discussion about obituaries and where they fit in our understanding about life and death.
