Hoover's Vision: Original Thinking for Business Success
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
Hoover's Vision offers an eye-opening look at how creative minds see the world and translate their visions into reality. It is an education in innovation; insight into how to think above where others are, see patterns where others see fragments, and weave it all together to form a lasting enterprise. While the other kids were watching cartoons, twelve-year-old Gary Hoover was reading Fortune and beginning his entrepreneurial quest. The founder of Bookstop, Inc. and Hoover's Online is passionate about successful enterprise and speaks around the world about what makes winners win and losers lose. Hoover believes that anyone can think like a CEO, inventor, or entrepreneur if they train themselves to do so.
Through stories and exercises, Gary Hoover teaches us how to cultivate the virtues that are at the heart of every breakthrough in business and in the rest of life—curiosity, clarity, passion, and panoramic vision. Hoover speaks from his own experience and that of others. This book is geared for the entrepreneur or the individual who seeks to think bigger, broader—for business and pleasure. It features "back-of-the-envelope" drawings, anecdotes, mind exercises, and practical advice from an expert entrepreneur who has been interviewed on CNN, and was featured in The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, and newspaper articles from coast to coast.
In 1982, he created BOOKSTOP, a pioneering forerunner of the modern book superstore, which changed the way we shop for books. In 1990, he founded a business information publisher, The Reference Press, which evolved into Hoover's, Inc., a leading provider of information about companies and industries on the Internet, which changed the way people do business research. A pioneer in the old and new economies, Hoover's continued, passionate quest is, " What separates the winners from the losers? What are the keys to lasting success for any enterprise, large or small?" His book contains the answers.
