T2 Biosystems CEO John Sperzel guest stars on this episode of Let's Talk Medtech to talk about his new book, Courage: Powerful Lessons in Leadership, Strength, and the Will to Succeed. Featured last month in the MD+DI Book Club, Courage not only details Sperzel's personal journey as a heart transplant recipient and sepsis survivor, but also offers powerful motivational takeaways about overcoming adversity, and finding one's true purpose.

"One of the greatest gifts adversity can give us is the hidden gift of true purpose," Sperzel says. "My experience gave me clarity of vision, and more importantly, purpose. So my passion for advancing these life-saving technologies literally intersected with and became my purpose."
