Donato Tramuto felt bulldozed by life as a child when he lost most of his hearing to an ear infection that left him isolated and treated as a failure. A succession of tragedies rocked his world, including a last minute decision to change his plans to fly out of Logan Airport on 9/11 on the same LA-bound flight that claimed the lives of his close friends. In this poignant and penetrating book, Tramuto, a successful health care entrepreneur and global philanthropist, recounts the business and life lessons he learned and shows that adversity can lead to success. He shows anyone bulldozed by life how to pull themselves out of the rubble, dust themselves off and find meaning and purpose.

The result is a powerful guide that charts several "bulldozer moments" in Tramuto's life and offers insights into health care issues, personal involvement, and business decision-making.

Donato Tramuto demonstrates the value around hard work and tenacity, applying his own challenges to a four-decade crusade to improve access to healthcare. In Life's Bulldozer Moments, Donato demonstrates how his unrelenting passion for improving access to high-quality healthcare has made a positive difference in the lives of people from Africa to the United States. -- Dr. Regina Herzlinger, Nancy R. McPherson Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School
Life's Bulldozer Moments demonstrates the power of harnessing personal loss and adversity to drive professional success, and the power of leveraging professional success to effect social change. Donato Tramuto's professional story illustrates the unpredictable trajectory of the healthcare industry over the past thirty years, while his personal experiences gave him an unwavering determination to succeed in business and to improve the lives of others. A great example of leadership, compassion and fortitude. -- Senator William H. Frist, M.D. of Tennessee
With this book, Donato Tramuto's descriptive phrase, `life's bulldozer moments' has entered the American lexicon. Donato describes his most deeply personal and professional bulldozer moments as life-changing challenges that shaped his unrelenting drive to make this world a better place. Donato's message is simple and profound: Material success in life and business is best used as a means to end suffering and create a more just and peaceful world. -- Kerry Kennedy, President, Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights
I have known Donato Tramuto for many years-as a successful healthcare executive, a thriving business owner and a former elected official in Ogunquit. I didn't realize the amount of adversity he has faced and overcome in his life. For the first time I understand how Donato has used those Bulldozer Moments to bolster his determination to improve the human condition-in his home state of Maine and around the world. -- Former Maine Governor John E. Baldacci
