A portrait of the outsider presidential candidate who captured the American imagination, based on exclusive interviews with Ross Perot, his family, and his business associates He’s a brilliant entrepreneur, a robust patriot, a working-class boy who rose to be a business tycoon. But who is the real Ross Perot? In this definitive biography that everyone who cares about America will want to read, Ken Gross brings to life the man behind the news stories and the sound bites, offering insights into Perot’s gifts for leadership. Here are the experiences that forged Perot’s character and political convictions: his humble childhood in Texas, his naval service, his astounding business success, his daring hostage-rescue mission to Iran. Here are his down-to-earth ideas for re-energizing America. Ross Perot: The Man Behind the Myth offers the most revealing and detailed portrait yet of the man who singlehandedly transformed America’s political landscape.
Ken Gross is a magazine writer and a former columnist for Newsday. A recipient of the Meyer Berger Award for journalism, he is the author of nine previous books of fiction and nonfiction.
