'100 Great Businesses and the Minds Behind Them' is special because rather than pretending there is only one way to run a business, it looks at a diverse collection of business people and their businesses and how they make their enterprises work. From daring, risk-loving entrepreneurs such as Richard Branson and Aussie Home Loans John Symond, to self starters Bill and Imelda Roche; from Enjo millionaire Barb de Corti to billionaire investment oracle Warren Buffett and the inspiring yet conservative creator of liquid paper, Bette Graham. Profiles include creative geniuses such as shoe guru Manolo Blahnik, vacuum-cleaner mogul James Dyson and accidental ice-cream entrepreneurs Ben & Jerry. This is an accessible collection of true stories from Australia and around the world, that offer inspiration, ideas and lessons on the principles of successful business.
