This is a work of fiction-based-on fact (roman a' clef). The author draws on his fifty plus years of experience in many aerospace companies. Not Invented Here (NIH) tells the stories in an entertaining manner of the post WW II of several aerospace companies that has now been integrated into the two and a half aerospace giants listed on Wall Street.
This book is filled with political, technical, financial and management insights. The related episodes of romance bring realism to the main characters life experiences.
The lead character, Ben, and the rest of his "team", are real, down-to-earth men, complete with family problems, a real-life lifestyle, and problems in the workplace. After completing his WW II duty as a Naval Aviator, Ben begins his aerospace industrial career. When the Moon Mission is ordained by President Kennedy, he becomes a major contributor to his company being awarded the program. He and his "team" work to streamline the management of divisions of his large aerospace employer and together, they come up with many innovative projects for military aircraft, missiles, commercial air transports and management techniques.
Along with being a great read, these stories will give much insight to present day entrepreneurs and managers as to ways they can improve their own techniques.
