Synopsis: Book by McKnight, Gerald
From Library Journal:
British journalist McKnight's full-scale account of Guccio Gucci's rags-to-riches story and the lives of his descendants begins with GG as a waiter at London's Savoy Hotel, through the aftermath of World War I, to the opening of the first shop in Florence in 1923. It shows how this man's keen appreciation for quality goods led to the growth of the business to 153 stores worldwide. Today the family is divided by shareholder fights, broken family life, tax-evasion lawsuits, and vendettas. McKnight includes court documents, newspaper clippings, and company papers for an objective biography of this mercantile empire. Recommended for large public libraries. Mary Ann Wasick, West Allis P.L., Wis.
