This paradigm of American corporate history tells the interwoven stories of George Raymond's successful business career and his personal life. As a teenager, Raymond went to work for his father's firm, The Raymond Corporation. He rose to become its president, developed a revolutionary product, the narrow-aisle forklift truck, and made the company a premier manufacturer of materials handling equipment. Just as he was starting to enjoy his success, tragedy struck: a murder shattered his family. Having remarried and reached retirement age years later, Raymond picked as his successor a CEO who became an adversary. Finally, he was compelled to force the sale of his family-owned company. By all accounts, the book is a classic case history of a family business and a gripping personal memoir.
