GOLDEN BOY, (Aiken Press, 2003)
In an age where business is too often seen as brutal combat devoid of ethics and human concern, the amazing story of Harold Simmons’s journey from bank trainee to one of the nation’s… wealthiest, most successful corporate investors is an inspiring record of intelligence, honesty, and faith in the American system. It is also a fascinating trip through the byzantine realities of high corporate finance and corporate acquisition and a dynamic validation of the idea that the true value of public companies can be discovered through nothing more than intellect, hard work, and public records.
This is the story of Harold Simmons, whose journey from his home in Golden, Texas, has been on a path paved in gold. Written in the can’t-put-it-down style of best-selling author John J. Nance.
