Publisher's Summary

Here's a biographical profile of Harvey Firestone, founder of Firestone Tire and Rubber Co. Once upon a time, there were four friends who called themselves the Vagabonds. They took summer trips together, shared their thoughts, dreams and visions, and forever changed the world we live in. They were born into simple farming families but set their horizons well beyond their pastures. They were inventive and industrious, and they achieved extraordinary success. The Vagabonds were Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, John Burroughs and Harvey Firestone.

Firestone, the youngest of them, attributed his success to zeal and passion: "I do not know whether I am the slave or the master of that business. But the big thing is that I do not care which, for the job is worth doing as either master or servant. The job is not only worth doing well, but there is a great joy in doing it." The story of Firestone is a classic lesson in how to succeed in business and amass great wealth.

This is a tantilizing bite of a much bigger story - but for under a dollar, its an appetizer of worth.
