When former Indiana governor Mitch Daniels was named Purdue University's twelfth president, he became one of a small handful of nationally renowned figures to lead an institution of higher education. In an era when university presidents had largely abandoned the role of public intellectual, Daniels immediately captured broad attention for his willingness to take a thoughtful stand on America's most pressing challenges--in academia and far beyond.

Boiler Up: A University President in the Public Square offers readers a fascinating compendium of commencement addresses, published columns, and transcripts of speeches and hosted events spanning ten years of insights and insightful interactions that put Mitch Daniels front and center among American thought leaders. Throughout the book, Daniels's sharp intellect, incisive analysis, and delightful sense of humor reign supreme. Via embedded QR codes, readers can "attend" recorded content, including evenings with Condoleezza Rice, Garry Kasparov, Walter Isaacson, and other fascinating people. Whether the reader seeks lessons on leadership or immersion in engaging ideas, Boiler Up is a tour de force of transformative thinking.

Proceeds from the sales of Boiler Up support the scholarship fund at Purdue Polytechnic High Schools.
