The magnificent Mrs. Tennant : the adventurous life of Gertrude Tennant, Victorian grande-dame by David Waller( )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 1,178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gertrude Tennant's life was remarkable for its length (1819-1918), but even more so for the influence she achieved as an unsurpassed London hostess. The salon she established when widowed in her early fifties attracted legions of celebrities, among them Gladstone and Disraeli, Oscar Wilde, Mark Twain, Thomas Huxley, John Everett Millais, Henry James, and Robert Browning. In her youth she had a fling with Gustave Flaubert, and in her later years she became the redoubtable mother-in-law to the explorer Henry Morton Stanley. But as a woman in a male-dominated world, Mrs. Tennant has been remembered mainly as a footnote in the lives of eminent men. This book recovers the lost life of Gertrude Tennant, drawing on a treasuretrove of recently discovered family papers - thousands of letters, including two dozen original letters from Flaubert to Gertrude, dozens of diaries, and many other unpublished documents relating to Stanley and other famous figures of the nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. David Waller presents Gertrude Tennant's life in colourful detail, placing her not only at the heart of a multi-generational, matriarchal family epic but also at the centre of European social, literary, and intellectual life for the best part of a century."--Publisher description
Wheels on fire : the amazing inside story of the DaimlerChrysler merger by David Waller( Book )

15 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Daimler-Benz's founders invented the motor car and for decades the company has been an emblem of Germany's economic might. Chrysler was the most profitable of North America's big three automotive manufacturers." "DaimlerChrysler was formed in 1998 with the merger of the two. The deal was the biggest merger of industrial companies in history, creating a global giant with sales of $120 billion and 470,000 employees. The new group combines the mystique of the Mercedes-Benz brand, for decades synonymous with luxury and speed, with Chrysler, a symbol of Americana. The fusion of the two is a marriage of national cultural icons. The deal points the way to the new business world, operating across borders in a global economy - it is significant beyond its sheer scale as a blueprint for the future." "The inspiration for the deal came from Juergen E. Schrempp, the charismatic former apprentice from the Black Forest. He took over the reins at Daimler-Benz in 1995 and swiftly implemented one of the most brutal industrial restructurings Europe has ever seen. Drawing on exclusive information sources from within the company and its closest advisors, this book tells the inside story of the merger and its aftermath. It provides unprecedented insight into the mind and methods of Schrempp." "The book demonstrates in detail how the deal is a template for business in the twenty-first century. It gives tangible lessons for managers, highlighting what was done right and what would be done differently another time round. It provides a unique insight into the fusion of European and North American business culture to create a genuinely global company; above all, it is a great story."--Jacket

The perfect man : the muscular life and times of Eugen Sandow, Victorian strongman by David Waller( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eugen Sandow (1867-1925) was a Victorian strongman who was colossally famous in his day and possessed what was deemed to be the most perfect male body. He rose from obscurity in Prussia to become a music-hall sensation in late Victorian London, going on to great success as a performer in North America and throughout the British Empire. He was a friend to King Edward VII and was appointed Professor of Physical Culture to King George V. His physical culture system was adopted by hundreds of thousands around the world. He lost his fortune at the time of the First World War and he ended up being buried in an unmarked grave in Putney Vale Cemetery. There is lively interest in him on the web where his dumbells or chest-extenders sell for hundreds of pounds and an autographed photograph for thousands
