Thomas Watson Sr. and the Making of IBM
by Kevin Maney

IBM is one of the most successful companies in American history; it ushered in the Information Age and dominated the information industry for more than seventy years. Yet the builder of IBM has never been thoroughly examined and brought to life … until now. Kevin Maney, using thousands of documents never before made public, reveals the lasting achievement of Thomas Watson Sr., the man who forever changed the world of business.

“At just the right moment when we most need it, Maney brings us a penetrating picture of one of the most important figures of the twentieth century, a man whose life teaches us about resiliency — individual and institutional — and much about what we need to recreate greatness in our own future.” – – Jim Collins
