FROM Janette Sadik-Khan
Streetfight Janette Sadik-Khan was Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s transportation commissioner from 2007 to 2013. Under her watch, she led a very public battle to add 400 miles of bike lanes and establish more than 60 pedestrian plazas in the city, most notably -- and controversially -- closing five blocks of Broadway to cars in Times Square. She tells her story in the new book Streetfight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution . In a blurb on the back cover, Bloomberg refers to her as "the child that Robert Moses and Jane Jacobs never had." Sadik-Khan discusses lessons learned from the epic opponents.

In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
