From the Inside Flap:

Hoover's Vision is an eye-opening, hands-on look at how entrepreneurs and innovative leaders come up with new ideas. He offers practical how-to techniques and advice on how to focus on each step required for building a great enterprise. Starting with observing the world around us and seeing patterns where others see only fragments, Hoover shows how to weave together a passionate vision that is clear, consistent, unique, and worthwhile - the ultimate big picture. Written for leaders from corporate executives to independent business owners, from non-profit board members to start-up dreamers, this is the definitive guide to entrepreneurial vision by a true entrepreneurial visionary.

In 1982, he created BOOKSTOP, a pioneering forerunner of the modern book superstore, which changed the way we shop for books. In 1990, he founded a business information publisher, The Reference Press, which evolved into Hoover's, Inc., a leading provider of information about companies and industries on the Internet, which changed the way people do business research. A pioneer in the old and new economies, Hoover's continued, passionate quest is, " What separates the winners from the losers? What are the keys to lasting success for any enterprise, large or small?" His book contains the answers.

About the Author:

Gary Hoover travels the world speaking to Fortune 500 executives, trade associations, entrepreneurs, and college and high school students about how enterprises are built and how they stand the test of time. His speeches and workshops have ranged from the Hong Kong and Jakarta chapters of YEO (Young Entrepreneurs Organization) to keynote at the National Association of Convenience Stores Convention and the Mid-Atlantic Venture Capital Conference, from Oracle client conferences to strategic planning meetings of major law firms. From his own successes and failures, and from the lessons of the thousands of companies studied by Hoover¿s, he draws real-life examples of the things that really matter. He talks about the role of history, of geography, of demography, of curiosity, and the other key things that aren¿t discussed every day in the newspaper ¿ or the classroom. Gary speaks from long experience and long study about the big picture, about the critical components of the successful business mission.

Gary lives in Austin, Texas, with his 40,000-book personal research library. In Austin, he has worked to develop entrepreneurial thinking among local young people, helping to create a group of students who meet monthly to learn the keys to entrepreneurial success.
