This biography studies the 90-year life of the hard-charging businessman and philanthropist who built a one-truck hauling company into one of the nation's leading truck leasing and logistics companies. In forming a portrait of one of Iowa's most famous citizens, Friedricks (history, Simpson College) uses interviews with Ruan, family, and friends, and accesses privately held papers and corporate records. The story of Ruan's perseverance and business successes and failures may appeal to entrepreneurs and general readers interested in business and history.
