1,000 Dollars & an Idea. Entrepreneur to Billionaire Sam Wyly. 2008. ISBN  9781557048035.  “What I learned creating and building University Computing, Sterling Software, Maverick Capital, Bonanza Steakhouse, Michaels Stores, Green Mountain Energy.”  This guy is a good writer and a thoughtful researcher.  I lived through the times he is talking about and the man is audacious to the nth degree.  I read this almost in one sitting last nite – it reads so easily and is also so compelling.   Very good coast to coast airplane ride book.   There is little for every type of businessman in this book.  The man has strong ethics and character and he speaks the truth – loudly.  Now if only I could figure out how and why his market timing is so good as he seems to sell his companies at the top of their markets.
