Acquisition by Robert W. Zinnecker

Moving to the Country Was Supposed to Make Things Simpler for Corporate Chief Wilson McCann. Instead, the Intrigue Is Just Beginning.

Wilson McCann, the CEO of Dynacom, tried everything to save his beloved firm. But when a rival gobbles up the telecom giant for a lower-than-expected share price, McCann is vilified in the business press. So McCann decides to escape the rough-and-tumble corporate world for a new challenge: rescuing his dead uncle’s debt-ridden farm.

It’s in this small Michigan town that McCann meets three women from his past who want to be a part of his future. Each has a decidedly different objective. Meanwhile, old associates seek to draw him back into the telecom industry even as new friends urge him to find God’s plan.

But problems multiply when McCann gets involved in an acquisition scheme that would restore him as a CEO. A prominent politician may turn the deal into a disaster, and a series of personal tragedies threatens to drive McCann to his knees. Then he begins his greatest acquisition, and his future opportunities collide with the results of his past.

Acquisition is the provocative story of one man’s search for meaning amidst Wall Street raiders and small-town farmers—and the surprising revelations about what matters most.

This book grabbed my interest from the first few pages. My husband worked in the telephone industry during this time and I had heard all the 'jargon', so it fascinated me to read about the life of someone else who went through this era. I could not put the book down. The author combined the lives of interesting people with the industry in a way that was amazing. When I finished reading it, I couldn't wait for my husband to read it so we could share the story. Thanks for such a good book.

By the time I finished the book, I was not sure how I would review it. At times the book dragged and I got tired of reading what food was being served everytime there was a gathering. I enjoyed the overall storyline and getting to know each of the characters, but felt that too much emphasis was put on their faith.

This book is an awesome read. The author has the ability to make you imagine you are in the story. The characters are wonderful people and make you wonder if you could be them! Months after I finished the book, I was still thinking about the message and the great story behind it. I highly recommend this reading. It would make for great book club conversation too!

Acquisition brings forth interesting characters and several plots that are suspenseful and entertainingly fun to follow. The book is a very compelling portrayal of Corporate America that can devour the lives of its employees that many have experienced or could easily empathize with on a personal basis. Whether you are a born again Christian, or one questioning the validity of God, the book will strengthen your spiritual passion or possibly open a door to your own personal relationship with God. Acquisition is well worth reading. It is a riveting novel with well-developed themes that keep your interest from beginning to end. I strongly recommend it.
