Description - A Kind of Genius by Sam Roberts

In A Kind of Genius, Sam Roberts offers a window onto Herb Sturzs extraordinary lifes work. Sturz began his long career in social entrepreneurship by reforming the bail system and founding the Vera Institute of Justice. He served as New York Citys Deputy Mayor for Criminal Justice under Ed Koch and then as Chairman of the City Planning Commision. He moved on to establish affordable inner-city housing and programs for at-risk individuals. But Sturz has, to date, largely eschewed the publics eye. Roberts pays tribute to Sturzs inspirational legacy of accomplishment. His initiatives have consistently provided solutions to our most challenging problems. Here, for the first time, his astonishing story is told in full.
