The Book That's Sweeping America!: Or Why I Love Business!

توضیحات

Listen to what some of America's opinion-shapers are saying about The Book that's Sweeping America! "This book will stand the business world on its head." -Christopher Buckley author of Wry Martinis "I'll risk twenty dollars that he can outjump any frog in Calaveras county." -Mark Twain "Thomas hits the nail on the head-with a scud missile. CEOs everywhere will be underlining entire chapters with magic marker." -John Rothchild columnist, Fortune magazine "This book is short and so full of visuals that it seems less obvious than it actually is." -Raymond Wilson Proprietor, Wilson's Fish Market, Inc. "Consciously or unconsciously, every one of us does render some service or other." -Mahatma Gandhi


STEPHEN MICHAEL PETER THOMAS began his business career at age 14 as strategy consultant and head clerk at Wilson's Fish Market, Inc. After graduating summa cum laude from Harvard, Stanford, and MIT simultaneously, Steve went on to earn an MBA and LLD. After a stint as the youngest partner at the blue-chip consultancy McKinsey & Co., Steve founded his own firm and was immediately in demand by business leaders worldwide. Steve's first book Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better, topped the New York Times Bestseller List even before it was written. When he is not consulting, globe-trotting, conducting seminars, or writing bestsellers, Steve likes to spend time with his collection of technology-based devices including a Gulfstream V, desktop supercomputer, and personal submarine.
