Tom Morris is a native of North Carolina, a graduate of UNC Chapel Hill, where he was a Morehead-Cain Scholar, and the recipient of a double PhD from Yale University, as well as honorary doctorates in recognition for his public work. He’s gone from being one of the most popular professors ever at The University of Notre Dame, where he taught for 15 years, to now becoming the world's most active public philosopher, authoring so far over 30 published books, including national bestsellers, while bringing the wisdom of the ages to many of the biggest and most successful companies in the world.
Tom’s the author of books like True Success, If Aristotle Ran General Motors, Philosophy for Dummies, The Stoic Art of Living, If Harry Potter Ran General Electric, the highly praised short novel, The Oasis Within, a book about Steve Jobs called Socrates in Silicon Valley, and his latest book, just out, which is about dealing with difficult and disruptive change—or what to do when life hands you very big lemons. It’s called Plato’s Lemonade Stand.
His work has been covered by most American television networks like ABC, NBC, and CNN, CNBC, and in most major newspapers and magazines around the world, including the New York Times and the Economist. He’s also been described as the world’s happiest philosopher.
