Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “In the course of sixty years, Thomas J. Watson Sr. and his son, Thomas J. Watson Jr., together built the colossus that is IBM, one of the largest and most profitable business enterprises on earth. This is their story: a riveting and revealing account of two men who loved each other — and fought each other — with a terrible fierceness. The father rose from penniless sewing-machine salesman to confidant of presidents; one of America's great entrepreneurs, he was a selling genius who gave the world the motto THINK. But it was Thomas J. Watson Jr. who put IBM into computers, leading the company through the longest and most spectacular burst of growth in business history. Under Tom Watson Jr., IBM gave birth to the computer age and came to embody the very idea and ideal of the modern corporation.”
