Description - The Rich by William Davis
William Davis draws on half a century's experience in financial journalism to present a detailed portrait of the figures and lives behind the fortunes - from entrepreneurs like Richard Branson to sports stars like Tiger Woods, and showbiz legends like Elton John. He asks:- What makes them different? -Are they really a breed apart? - What does it take to amass great wealth, where does it come from, and what does it mean to those who have it? - How do they use their money? And how do they feel about the rest of us? -What is their power and what are their fears? Including quotes and anecdotes, The Rich is thought-provoking and highly entertaining.Praise for William Davis' previous books:'Says the unsayable' The Times, 'Stimulating and sparky' The Director, 'A rare book, one that tackles some of the big and complex issues in business, but in an entertaining way' Financial Mail, 'All but impossible to resist' Publishers Weekly (US)
