About the Author
S. Prestley Blake, at age 100, divides his time between homes in Florida and Connecticut, enjoys visits from his many friends around the world, still sails occasionally, and still dabbles in Rolls- Royces. He loves hearing from former employees. Every August he attends the retirees picnic, and occasionally, dressed jauntily in bow tie and blazer, he pays a visit to Friendly s manufacturing plant in Wilbraham, Massachusetts. Pres and his wife Helen support many causes, giving away $1.5 million a year. He especially enjoys speaking to audiences of young people, telling them that they, too,can enjoy a successful life if they work hard and play by the rules. Alan Farnham is currently a freelance writer. He has worked for ABCnews.com and at Forbes magazine as senior editor overseeing lifestyle coverage. Prior to that he was a senior writer at Fortune for 13 years. His books include Guts: The Seven Laws of Business that Made Chrysler the World s Hottest Car Company (John Wiley & Sons, 1998), ghost-written for Chrysler s then-vice chairman Robert Lutz, and Forbes Great Success Stories: Twelve Tales of Victory Wrested from Defeat (John Wiley & Sons, 2000), written under his own byline.
