Discover the lives and achievements of more than 90 of the world’s most inspirational and influential entrepreneurs and business leaders with this book of graphic-led biographies.
Boldly illustrated and comprehensive in its scope and depth, Entrepreneurs Who Changed History profiles leaders of industry across the world and throughout the ages – from the enterprising bankers of the medieval world and the merchants of empire, to the titans of industry and the geniuses of Silicon Valley.
Combining accessible text with specially-commissioned illustrated portraits in a range of bold artwork styles, photographs, and infographics, entries showcase each individual in a fresh, visual way. The towering personalities behind some of history’s most recognizable brands and companies – their ruthlessness, tenacity, creativity, and sheer grit – are all brought to vivid life.
Profiling the kings and queens of commerce and trade, Entrepreneurs Who Changed History features the familiar faces of Vanderbilt and Rockefeller, Ford and Ferrari, Gates and Zuckerberg, alongside lesser-known figures such as the enterprising women of colonial America, the emancipated slaves who became millionaires against all odds, and the individuals powering today’s emerging economies.
