Contents Notes
This absorbing historical account is wonderfully anecdotal and alive with the trials as well as the triumphs of a $4 billion multinational company. Tracing it from its founding in 1901 for the purpose of making saccharin - in the days when the synthetic sweetener was a German monopoly - the book reveals how the Germans tried to force founder John F. Queeny out of business, and how the company grew after World War I under the leaderhsip of Edgar Monstanto Queeny, the founder's son.
