    Corporate bio reveals triumph over business pitfalls and disease

    David Jones, a leading executive in British mail order fashion retailing, was diagnosed with Parkinson¿s Disease on July 25, 1982, at age 39. In spite of that diagnosis, he remained a CEO of major companies for two decades. Jones¿ interesting autobiography downplays his fight against Parkinson¿s and focuses on his compelling career. While he covers little of his personal life, he gives an honest, detailed account of an almost confusing number of people, companies, trends and power plays from his professional life. The book is not chronological. Part I covers Jones¿ dramatic efforts to rescue NEXT from bankruptcy. Part II reports on his childhood and early career, and Part III covers his later years as CEO, as well as his illness and his philanthropy. We recommend this straightforward professional saga, despite wishing that its forthright, gutsy author had told it in order.
