Everybody Wins! A Life in Free Enterprise (2nd edition, paperback)
Everybody Wins! is the inspiring, unfamiliar picture of an individual launching a wholly new career—not once but twice—when most of us are ready to retire. In his 70s Gordon Cain, a chemical engineer by trade, acquired and restructured several chemical companies, effecting a turnaround in the commodity chemicals industry. An unprecedented visionary, Cain made millions for himself and his employees through the strategies of innovative management, employee stock ownership, and leveraged buyouts. In his 80s he turned his interests to a new economy field—biotechnology. Within only six years he transformed one company, Lexicon Genetics, from a university-based start-up to a public company worth over one billion dollars, while masterminding two more biotech companies. The second edition talks about these recent ventures. As Cain recounts with modesty and humor how he made his way from chemical engineer to millionaire-entrepreneur, we are reminded of how America's free-market economy provides unparalleled opportunity and how good business deals can benefit everyone. In the process this book illustrates how entrepreneurs continually reinvent themselves
