In a city known for its powerful business leaders, Ben Love towered as one of the most influential. Under his competent management as CEO of Texas Commerce Bancshares in the 1980s, TCB was the only "Big Five" Texas bank to survive that decade's collapse of the Texas banking industry. Love's story provides an insightful perspective on the evolution of Texas banks after World War II, their decline, and their subsequent recovery. It also offers a glimpse into the kind of character that creates men of power.

" . . . a compelling story of a boy growing up in the East Texas cotton belt during the ravages of the Great Depression, a young man facing possible death flying twenty-five missions in B-17 bombers over Nazi- occupied Europe, and an adult building the most successful banking organization in Texas history. . . . A `must-read' for aspiring business and community leaders."--Joseph M. Grant, Chairman and CEO, Texas Capital Bancshares, Inc.
