Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

Jeffrey Marx was born in Rye Brook, New York. He graduated from Northwestern University. He became the youngest-ever recipriant of the Pulitzer Prize for journalism when he was 23. His Pulitzer was awarded for a series of articles about cheating in college basketball, which he wrote while working for the Lexington (Kentucky) Herald-Leader. He is the author of four books as well. More than anything else, though, he enjoys taking the most powerful messages of his work and sharing them with live audiences. That is how he became such an inspirational public speaker. In the last few years alone, Marx has been the featured speaker for more than 100 events hosted by schools, corporations, community groups, and faith-based organizations. Marx is also the co-founder and director of the non-profit Wendy Marx Foundation for Organ Donor Awareness (established in 1990). The foundation is named for his sister, a liver transplant recipient who transformed her own health challenges into a powerful message of hope for others. Wendy died, at the age of 36, in 2003. This foundation will always continue her important work. (Bowker Author Biography)
