From the Publisher
Editors Note The story of how Robert Clifford went from being a poor student to a global shipping entrepreneur reads more like adventure fiction than cold hard fact—but it's all true. The tale contains the usual quota of disaster and triumph, spiced with a fascinating account of ingenuity and invention at work. After all, if you go into business, you might as well experience a financial meltdown and a bank receivership. If you take up yachting, you might as well win the Sydney-Hobart race in a near photo-finish. If you invent and then dominate a global fast-ferry market, you might as well win the Hales Trophy for the fastest Atlantic crossing, not once but three times. But behind the swashbuckling adventure story lies a complex, affectionate, and little-understood man of surprising sensitivity and creativity. He is an all-action hero consumed by the need to conceive, shape, and bring to fruition objects of great utility and beauty. He is a man quite unlike the standard-issue "businessman" and much more like those distinguished artists and scientists who are impelled by some inner voice to do the work they do.
