JACK NEDELL knew early in life that he wanted to break away from home and go out into the world to travel, explore foreign lands and, eventually, pursue a career abroad.

In Around the World in 80 Years Jack relates his lifelong journey as a global businessman traveling, living and managing overseas operations in countries throughout the world.

From his long career as an executive in Procter & Gamble s international business, Jack provides behind-the-scenes stories of how P&G evolved from essentially a U.S. business in the 1950 s into the global powerhouse it is today.
