"The huge popularity of The Apprentice reflects the degree to which business has emerged as a primary force in popular culture. Not surprisingly, what it takes to succeed in the cutthroat corporate environment is not unlike show business--strong ego, ability to withstand rejection, creativity, and risktaking, to name a few of the requisite qualities. Icons of Business presents 24 entrepreneurs, corporate executives, and mavericks whose influence extends beyond business into society at large. From Martha Stewart to Ben and Jerry, Bill Gates to Anita Roddick, Icons of Business offers indepth profiles of the business leaders whose names and products have become household words. Each profile includes discussion of the subject's background, career, accomplishments, supporters and detractors, and lasting influence." -- Publisher's description
