Synopsis

In "Gerald Ronson: Leading from the Front", the last of the great British tycoons reveals how he fought his way to the top of the business ladder, lost everything twice, then clawed his way back up again. Gerald Ronson CBE quit school before his 15th birthday to work with his father in the family's furniture factory, and as a young man he and his friends were street fighters, using their fists to take on the British fascist movement. Ronson will forever be associated with the famous Guinness affair, which was the biggest financial scandal of the '80s. He was found guilty after a media circus of a trial in which the cards were stacked against him, and he spent six months in jail. Years later, the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg ruled that it had been an unfair trial. After Guinness, which Ronson calls the greatest crisis in his life, he suffered a major financial crash that nearly bankrupted him, and he has spent the last two decades rebuilding his empire and reputation.

Told in his own tough, no-nonsense words, Ronson's insights into British business, the British Establishment and justice system, and his family, friends and foes make this incredible autobiography essential reading.
