Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0972796622, Hardcover)

This unique book is a memoir of the author's eight incredible years with Victoria Station, the fastest growing restaurant chain of the 1970s based in San Francisco. It's a very personal story of living the American dream by climbing the corporate ladder and striving to be somebody. In the background, we learn how Victoria Station grew to over 100 restaurants in just over eight years. And how the company went from the most-envied restaurant chain to mismanaged disaster that ended in bankruptcy. It's funny, informative and includes big names like Johnny Cash, Lynn Swann, 49er Coach Bill Walsh and others.
