Mike Rowe is a star for many reasons. He is smart, articulate, charming, and witty. But it's the substance that truly matters: in times of credentialism and bureaucracy run amok, Mike celebrates individual skill and work as the basis of a great career. It's highly refreshing because it is so truth-telling.
You can imagine how thrilled the staff of FEE is that Mike chose to read his audience a version of a chapter from Lawrence Reed's Real Heroes.
