Description - Confessions of an Accidental Businessman: It Takes a Lifetime to Find Wisdom by James A. Autry

This work chronicles the 32-year career in business of the author and his rise to success as head of a magazine empire. It describes the blunders, triumphs, dilemmas, fears, moral conflicts and friendships that shaped and instructed him along the way. It provides a teaching tale for managers who seek the wisdom to become leaders. It uses real-life stories and anecdotes to examine important business topics: from cutting costs to community connections; mentoring to men and women in the workplace; and layoffs to long-term product development. The book emphasizes the importance of learning how to be and not just what to do, as well as the belief that when all the data, facts, information and knowledge are accumulated, a competent manager must still learn to look for the wisdom that is the mark of a leader.
