This commemorative edition presents a new introduction written by Reginald Lewis's daughter, Christina Lewis Halpern, and a new foreword by Richard Parsons, former chairman of Citigroup and former chairman and CEO of Time Warner. Their remarks are followed by new commentary from key leaders in business and education who each have been profoundly influenced by Lewis' business savvy and generosity while he lived, and in the years since his passing. Among these contributors are Ken Chenault of American Express, BET founder Robert Johnson, Mellody Hobson of Ariel Investments, Deborah C. Wright of Carver Bancorp, and James White of Jamba Juice.
This renewed edition is a living, breathing, continuing testament to Reginald Lewis' passion for "the deal" and for life itself. Each contributor in this book shares Lewis' zest and enthusiasm, and appreciation in their own way, his glass ceiling-shattering question: Why Should White Guys Have All the Fun?
