In this extensively-illustrated, full-color memoir, legendary entrepreneur and investor Seymour Holtzman recalls his six decades of intense business activities in fields ranging from advertising sales to book publishing, jewelry merchandizing, banking, stock-trading, and clothing retail. He also chronicles he and his wife Evie's close friendship with Ron and Nancy Reagan and other prominent figures, the couple's extensive philanthropy, the entrepreneurial and political exploits of his two sons and daughter, and he and Evie's adventures in collecting fine art and establishing one of the largest private collections of Tiffany stained glass.


Pennsylvania native Seymour Holtzman's elaborately illustrated and beautifully-designed memoir is both a personal chronicle and a volume meant to inspire younger readers to innovate, explore possibilities, work hard, and never stop reaching for success. Holtzman's over-riding ambition is to point out the vast possibilities of the American free market, and the many ladders to success which it contains (for those with the will and the industry to climb them).
