Deutschman has covered Silicon Valley and other business topics for years. He was Fortune's Silicon Valley bureau chief from 1992-95. He also wrote about the valley and other subjects for GQ, New York Magazine, Fast Company and Vanity Fair. One of Deutschman's four books, “The Second Coming of Steve Jobs,” was about Silicon Valley, and he is at work on a major new book about the valley.
Deutschman also has written for TheDailyBeast.com and for Salon.com.
In addition to writing about Silicon Valley, Deutschman also has established a reputation for expertise in leadership and change. The Wall Street Journal called his 2009 book, “Walk the Walk: The #1 Rule for Real Leaders,” an ‘engaging reminder of some leadership basics that aren't necessarily taught in business school.’” The Miami Herald and Strategy + Business magazine both named “Walk the Walk” one of the best business books of 2009. LeadershipNow.com called it one of the best leadership books of 2009.
AudioFile said that the audio version of Deutschman's 2007 book, “Change or Die,” features strategies that ‘are innovative and seamlessly supported by riveting business stories.’ “Change or Die” has been translated into Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Italian and Indonesian.
Deutschman has taught a leadership course at Emory University and lectured widely on the subject, including speeches at General Electric's executive training center in Crotonville, N.Y., and keynote addresses to leadership conferences for organizations such as National Public Radio.
Deutschman and his wife, the novelist Susan Rebecca White, author of “Bound South,” moved from Atlanta to Reno.
