The son of dirt-poor sharecroppers, William "Si" Redd reached the pinnacle of business success despite shortcomings that have stymied less-determined men. His legendary sales and marketing genius, coupled with a natural instinct for the marketplace, catapulted him through a seven-decade romp in an industry famous for mobsters, glad-handers, and legends like Howard Hughes.
