HARRY SIMON’S PRIVATE KINGDOM, The Journey of a Self-Made Man
A business novel with locomotive force, rare in its honest presentation of the drama of business. The author holds nothing back in this story about running a small manufacturing business. He writes of the double dealings, the betrayals and petty dishonesties, as well as the acts of generosity, trust and loyalty that occur in his relationships with his employees, his customers, the bank, his friends, his wife and his mistress. Revealing his deepest conflicts, fears and doubts, brutally self-aware, the protagonist is to succeed, and does so at great personal cost.
Reviewer comments: "A crackling novel, damn near Shakespearean in its drama, psychology and insight." "No one should get an MBA until they've read Driven." "A tale worth telling." "Every business person and the spouse of every business person should read this book."
