Synopsis: More than an autobiography, "Partners" is also a chronicle of adventures that span the better part of the twentieth century. It is the intriguing personal memoir of Amnon Barness, a successful entrepreneur, businessman, humanitarian and phil anthropist.
Born in Palestine before the formation of the State of Israel, educated in an Egypt that was dangerous for a young Jew, he came to America with a few dollars in his pocket and earned a master's degree in Journalism from Syracuse University. He started h is career as a fundraiser for Israel in its infancy, and became a leading organizer of the Israel Bond program in the United States. He graduated to the business world as a co-founder of a number of businesses (several of which were the talk of Wall Stre et) that grew to employ thousands of people.
In "Partners", we get to know Amnon Barness as a creative man who has traveled the world, learned to speak nine languages, and had the good fortune to make effective partnerships with some extraordinary people. We learn of his love of family, his loyalty to his friends, his dedication to Israel, his commitment to education, and his ability to get others to contribute to those who need the extra help. We see how commercial success and humanitarian accomplishments go hand in hand. The State of Israel, the Catholic Church, and various colleges, universities, research centers and governments have honored him for his philanthropy.
None of us travel our life's journey alone, and in "Partners", Mr. Barness honors the people who have guided and enriched his life. It is not only the singular and solitary great man or woman who makes history, but also the collaborative efforts of the ma ny truly good individuals that create our greatest achievements. Self-effacing and candid, Amnon Barness shows that he is both a leader and a collaborator, and his memoir vividly tells his captivating story.
