Read by the smooth and intelligent Johanna Ward, this is a fascinating narrative about the lives of business titans such as Bill Gates, Sam Walton, Richard Branson, Ross Perot, and Warren Buffett--all billionaires from innovations, acquisitions, and/or superior management of one or more businesses. None of them became rich from being in a profession or merely owning stocks or real estate. They did it by growing businesses that were popular with both investors and customers. The strength of this audiobook is the balance of well-researched individual stories and the author’s nuanced abstractions about what made these men successful. A marvelous lesson and an important chapter in the history of why this country is the wealth incubator that it is. T.W. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 03/JAN 04]
