This novel shows the reader in real-time how things happen in business. It covers twenty years in the life of a CEO. Driving from moment to moment, propelling the protagonist forward, the story puts the reader in the CEO’s skin. Business crises pile on as quickly as solutions are found. Personal crises occur, and many remain unresolved.
Loaded with business savvy, the novel is an emotionally honest account of the price a CEO pays for success. The story ends with the CEO's retirement in which he questions whether he has done the right thing and whether he has missed out in much due to his passionate devotion to his business.
