Business's Most Wanted(Link)

Potomac Books
May 2005

Direct from Amazon Web Site:

Business's Most Wanted™ chronicles the best and worst of American business, explores the quirks of commerce, and provides an informative and sometimes amusing look at Wall Street. For an industry devoted to the serious matter of money management, this book provides a lighter look at business history, offering readers an entertaining guide to fascinating trivia about such topics as the ten largest family-owned businesses, former presidents with a business background, and unusual sales strategies, both successful and not, employed by eager store managers. Which Wall Street wizards were avid card players? Which great business leaders were adopted? What are the most socially responsible corporate cultures? It’s all here, from the oldest corporation in America, J.E. Rhodes & Sons (est. 1702), to the dot-com corporations that exploded on the scene in the 1990s. History buffs, businessmen and businesswomen, and anyone with an interest in the lighter side of the corporate world will enjoy this irreverent look at the icons and goats of American business history.
