Overview

An enterprising kid from the Bronx, Howard had one simple - but smart - idea that revolutionized telecommunications. He pioneered what is now an over-a-billion-dollar-a-year-industry, successfully fought off AT&T's aggressive attempts to pull the plug on his operation - then took his own start-up company public, to net over $100 million for himself. And it all began with a hot dog stand, as Jonas relates in this effervescent account of how he became the milionaire nextdoor.
