Succeeding Against the Odds
This is the inspiring autobiography of one of America's wealthiest entrepreneurs. John H. Johnson rose from the welfare rolls of the Depression to become the most successful Black businessman in American history; the founder of EBONY, JET, and EM magazines; a member of the FORBES 400. He has had dinner at the White House under seven Presidents. Like the man himself, "Succeeding Against The Odds" is brash, inspirational, and truly unforgettable. 'I believe that the greater the handicap the greater the triumph'.
