This book profiles the most exciting and inspiring American entrepreneurs of the past two centuries, from legendary masters of the business world, such as F. W. Woolworth, Walter Percy Chrysler, and Arthur Andersen, to unsung heroes who sowed the seeds that blossomed into empires. These entrepreneurs made their marks in every conceivable industry, from postage meters to personal fitness, from retailing to recycling, from healthcare to heavy equipment. If their stories have a common theme, it is that there is no single pathway to success, nor a clear set of rules to follow to get there. Each of these entrepreneurs saw opportunities that others missed, responded quickly and effectively to changes in the market, and was willing to be unconventional when circumstances required.
