Format: Hardcover
I started reading the book and could not put it down.
It was a fascinating story about Jerry Chazen's career, and about his amazing attitude towards philanthropy. Poignant and wonderful.

It is a must read.

I very much enjoyed reading Mr. Chazen's "My Life at Liz Claiborne". I had spent thirty-three years in the apparel business (VF Corp)and along with Mr. Chazen am a University of Wisconsin-Madison graduate and an art lover. I found his life's story to be an interesting and commendable one, at many points along his career he could have been satisfied with what he had achieved, but on he went, ultimately to make the Liz Claiborne a respected house-hold name.

In wanting to learn more about the company I then read "Liz Claiborne: The Legend, The Woman" by her husband Art Ortenberg. Now that got boring in a hurry. When he wasn't praising his wife for her looks, charity, courage he was implying it was she, with help from him, that were the main reasons for Liz Claiborne's success, and not near enough was made of Jerome Chazen's contribution.

If there is anyone still interested in reading about Liz Claiborne considering what a hash JCP has made of the brand since they acquired it don't bother picking up her husband's book, read Jerome Chazen's book, it's more interesting, readable and from my perspective much more accurate portrayal of the clothing industry at that time.

Chazen's book should be a leading case study in the Harvard (and every other) Business School curriculum. In fact, it is a rare description of transformative system reform in what has always been regarded as a kind of humdrum, if highly competitive industry. Chazen describes a reform process that permeated manufacturing, style, retailing, marketing and international commerce radically and effectively. A good read all around.
