In this series of profiles, author Stephen K. Troy takes a detailed look at people who walked down nontraditional paths to achieve success. Many of these leaders are no longer celebrated or remembered, but their achievements changed the course of business and continue to influence society.
You’ll learn about the unassuming billionaire who gave away his entire fortune during his lifetime to better the world. Not everyone is so generous, however; one scoundrel who stole billions. Some are more obscure than others, and this text brings their accomplishments to light. Leaders profiled include Aaron Burr, Henry Ford, John Ringling, Robert Morris, Frank Woolworth, Forrest Mars Sr., Daniel Ludwig, and many more.
Whether you are a student, a business leader, or someone considering a career in business, you’ll be entertained, informed, and educated as you read.
