Format: Hardcover
This book captures what American Entrepreneurship is all about! It is a semi biographical narrative of Pete DeBusk's Life. Pete's candid tales, business insight, and entertaining storytelling make it this a gripping read.

A true rags to riches story and very motivating.

Great close up and chatty reaveal of one superstar self made hero of Appalachia... And he is still at it... Lots of lessons for all generations as well as entrepreneurs and business people alike... A feel-good read worth it all.
