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.

Editorial Reviews

Maine Writers & Publishers Msagazine
Max Barnet's crackling novel DRIVEN is damn near Shakespearean in its drama, psychology, and insight. From paragons to parasites, from gifted people to those as flaky as a barrel of dandruff, Barnet's characters forge a convincing impression that running a business can be frivolous to some, yet an almost religious experience to others. And there are times when one should just throw a tent over the enterprise and charge admission.
