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.

This book is a complete guide to starting, managing and building a manufacturing business. In Jerry's case it was clothing, but can be applied to any consumer product. If you want to go into business, read this book first.

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.
