Brilliant, brave, and willing to defy conventional wisdom, Andy Grove, the CEO of Intel during its years of explosive growth, is on the shortlist of America's most admired businesspeople. Grove gave Tedlow unprecedented access to his private papers, along with wide-ranging interviews and access to friends and key business associates. The result is not just a life story but a fascinating analysis of how Grove attacks problems. Born a Hungarian Jew in 1936, András István Gróf survived the Nazis only to face the Soviet invasion of his country. He fled to America at age twenty, studied engineering, and arrived in Silicon Valley just in time to become the third employee of Intel. As talented as he was as an engineer, Grove became an even better manager. Tedlow shows us exactly how that penniless immigrant taught himself to lead a major corporation through some of the toughest challenges in the history of business.--From publisher description.
