Spanish journalist and best-selling author Sala (It Happened on Wall Street; It Happened on Wall Street II) has been editor of the economics section of El Periodico de Catalunya since 1990. In 2008 he received the Joan Sarda Dexeus Award, named after one of Spain's great economists. Here, Sala explores the development and succession planning of some of the world's largest and best-known family-owned businesses and dynasties. This is not a how-to book but rather a densely written and factual look at the power struggles and continuity challenges within the world's family-owned dynasties. Covering businesses as diverse as Gucci, Guinness, Lladro, Estee Lauder, and Michelin, Sala writes detailed, well-researched, and interesting stories illustrating the unique challenges and circumstances a family business faces. As he explains, the emotional nature and complexity of family relationships means that less than a third of family-owned businesses survive the second generation and less than ten percent survive the third generation. To make his points, Sala cites numerous examples, ranging from the sensational murder of Maurizio Gucci, ordered by his ex-wife, to the simple but effective "one heir, one boss" approach of the Beretta family, Recommended for academic libraries, special business libraries, and large public libraries with significant business collections.-Yolanda J.
