During his ten years at the helm, Aston Martin CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez turned a niche British car maker into a profitable global business. Not your normal corporate "how I did it", this is a unique, lavishly illustrated blend of business case and personal memoir. The plot zooms along like a thriller - no business platitudes and all the insider details. We're with Dr. Bez as he sleeplessly awaits Bill Ford's verdict on buying out Aston Martin. We get up-close with the intense challenges of running an exclusive car manufacturer and see just how a global luxury brand is developed. A car enthusiast and engineer with a vision, Bez also shares his thoughts on the future of the automobile - and his plans for Aston Martin.
