Description
An influential and innovative figure in the world of private equity, British financier Jeremy Coller understands that it takes more than a great idea to bring about a new invention; failure usually results when an individual who excels in a particular area of competence—the engineer, the investor, or the marketer—attempts to be all three. In these 30 incisive yet entertaining profiles, Coller focuses on the individual rather than the invention and explores the ways in which he or she did or did not succeed in bringing a vision to fruition, from Jonas Salk's polio vaccine, and King Gillette's safety razor, to Rudolph Diesel's engine.
