Here is what people are saying about Steve Troy's book, Business Biographies - Shaken, Not Stirred... With A Twist:
History of Little Known Titans
March 15, 2016
This is a concise and informative book about both well-known and little known business founders. The chapter on A.P. Giannini (did you know he founded Bank of America?) is fascinating to show how banking has evolved in 100 years. The almost-accidental development of Sweet & Lo is another interesting story on how a huge business idea can grow from addressing a smaller tactical issue. The book reveals that Aaron Burr, while now known to history as a scoundrel who killed Hamilton, founded what became Chase Manhattan Bank. Other well-known leaders, such as Alexander Graham Bell and Forrest Mars of M&M fame, are profiled in the book. Each chapter reads like a short story in that you can read it in one sitting. You will inevitably want to learn more about some of these leaders, but this book allows you to learn about them quickly. Highly recommended.
