Hershey : Milton S. Hershey's extraordinary life of wealth, empire, and utopian dreams by Michael D'Antonio( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 1,765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The name means chocolate to America and the world, but as author D'Antonio reveals, it also stands for an inspiring man and a uniquely successful experiment in community and capitalism that produced a business empire devoted to a higher purpose. Milton S. Hershey brought affordable milk chocolate to America, creating and then satisfying the chocoholic urges of millions, and pioneering techniques of branding, mass production, and marketing. But as he developed massive factories, Cuban sugar plantations, and a vacation wonderland called Hershey Park, M.S. never lost sight of a grander goal. Determined that his wealth produce a lasting legacy, he tried to create perfect places where his workers could live, perfect schools for their children, and a perfect charity to salvage the lives of needy children in perpetuity. Along the way, he overcame his personal childhood traumas, as well as the death, after a short and intensely romantic marriage, of the one woman he ever loved.--From publisher description

Never enough : Donald Trump and the pursuit of success by Michael D'Antonio( Book )

20 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In one way or another, Donald Trump has been a topic of conversation in America for almost forty years. No one in the world of business-not Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, or Warren Buffett-has been as famous as Trump for as long. First associated with high-profile real estate development in 1970s Manhattan, his name has since become synonymous with success defined by wealth and luxury. What does one make of a grown man who, when he argues with women, stoops to insulting their appearance and habitually courts controversy? What if the same man were among the most prominent people in the world, and a privately generous person who once handed a dying child a $50,000 check so that he could enjoy the last months of his life? Add to the picture a kind of resilience that has allowed him to stage countless comebacks and truly a boundless level of optimism, and you get a figure so compelling that he cannot be dismissed simply because of his personality"--Novelist
The Athena doctrine : how women (and men who think like them) will rule the future by John Gerzema( Book )

15 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women don't yet rule the world, but people around the globe sure wish they had more influence on business, government, and every other aspect of modern life. Among 64,000 people surveyed in thirteen nations, two-thirds said the world would be a better place if men thought more like women. The sentiment was the same across the planet: we've had enough of the winner-takes-all, masculine approach to getting things done. It's time for something better. Inspired by their data, John Gerzema and Michael D'Antonio traveled the world to uncover stories of women and men who lead innovative organizations with the skills and values commonly associated with women. By emphasizing cooperation, communication, and sharing, these pioneers succeed in a super-connected world. In The Athena Doctrine, the authors show why femininity is the operating system of twenty-first-century prosperity: Leadership : values traditionally associated with women create more effective leaders and organizational strategies in today's society; career management and self-improvement: traits associated with women--flexibility, empathy, and honesty--underpin career mobility and personal fulfillment; and change management: feminine traits help us adapt seamlessly and effectively to today's changes. Brought to life through fresh stories from around the world and backed by rigorous data, The Athena Doctrine shows how feminine values are ascending. By nurturing, listening, and collaborating, men and women alike are resolving conflicts, finding profits, and redefining success in every realm. Rich with implications for leadership, change management, and even career management, these stories will inspire you to find the same success

If ever a figure changed the game of baseball, it was Walter O'Malley. Criticized in New York and beloved in Los Angeles, O'Malley is one of the most controversial owners in the history of American sports. He remade the major leagues and altered the course of history in both Brooklyn and Los Angeles when he moved the Dodgers to California. But while many New York critics attacked him, O'Malley looked to the future, declining to argue his case. As a result, fans across the nation have never stopped arguing about him--until now. Using never-before-seen documents and candid interviews with players, associates, and relatives, writer Michael D'Antonio reveals this complex sportsman and industry pioneer. Filled with new revelations about O'Malley's battle with New York power broker Robert Moses, his pioneering business strategies, and his relationship with Jackie Robinson, this is an intimate portrait of a man who changed America's pastime forever.--From publisher description

A full cup : Sir Thomas Lipton's extraordinary life and his quest for the America's Cup by Michael D'Antonio( Book )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today Lipton means tea. However, in his time Sir Thomas Lipton was known for much more. Raised in desperate poverty, he became rich beyond his wildest dreams. He built a global empire of markets, factories, plantations, and stockyards, and his colorful pursuit of the America's Cup trophy made him a beloved figure on both sides of the Atlantic. Here, biographer Michael D'Antonio tells his tale. Beginning with a journey across the United States just after the Civil War, Scotsman Thomas J. Lipton developed the ambition and learned the business techniques that helped him create the first chain of grocery stores. Wealthy at 30, he set his sights on the tea trade, and soon his name became synonymous with his product. Lipton's great business success makes for a compelling story, but his most intriguing creation was a public persona--one of the first formed with the help of modern mass media.--From publisher description
