“Paul G. Blazer, a brilliant if parochial businessman, promoted a small independent oil refinery into a highly efficient petroleum company. He also attracted and trained some very energetic hard-driving young executives. When they finally had the company drop in their laps the world was their oyster. Great strides were taken and objectives reached - and “visions of sugarplums danced in their heads.” With success cam pride then greed and avarice. It was a wild ride and one hell of a lot of fun while it lasted.” [from the back cover of the book]
