Our earliest lessons come from those closest to us —
our families, our neighbors and our hometowns. They
shape our values and our lives. Small-town America
has much to teach us about values, from knowing the
importance of family, honesty and hard work, to
looking a person in the eye, shaking hands and
knowing your work is stronger than any legal document.
In BIG LESSONS FROM A SMALL TOWN, author Bill
Schuette recounts and reflect on those lessons,
beginning as a child growing up in Midland, Michigan,
through his national and state public service career,
and as a husband and community member. In this
candid, sometimes poignant book, Michigan’s Attorney
General shares the fundamental lessons that have
shaped his journey, including how those lessons were
tested during both highlights and challenges in his life.
Looking back, he shares what he has learned from
countless local community and world-famous leaders,
providing thoughtful insights and suggestions to
better serve, and in turn to be a better leader,
regardless of our professional or personal roles.
