Publisher Comments:

Business's Most Wantedb: The Top 10 Book of Corporate Greed, Eccentric Entrepreneurs, and Management Oddities, by Jim Romeo, chronicles the best and worst of American business history from colonial times to the present. It's loaded with entertaining lists detailing everything from the lowest CEO golf handicaps to weird inventions, unconventional headquarters, successful businesses that started on someone's kitchen table, and other amusing and enlightening topics. Which Wall Street wizards were avid card players? Which great business leaders were adopted? What are the most socially responsible corporate cultures? Who in corporate America achieved the rank of Eagle Scout? Which business leaders suffer from dyslexia? Which corporate commandos never went to college? Which cor-porations offer the best factory tours? You'll meet criminals, learn Wall Street slang, and even hear the tales of some of America's quirkiest tycoons. With dozens of top-ten lists on a myriad of subjects, Jim Romeo provides a unique and often hilarious look inside the business world. Everyone knows who Donald Trump is, but you'll be introduced to hundreds of other figures in the corporate arena and learn interesting facts about their companies. 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.
