This is the riveting story and first-ever biography of entrepreneur Bill Cook of the global multibillion-dollar Cook Group. A vivid portrait of a modern, multidimensional Horatio Alger, this informative and inspiring book celebrates an exceptional self-made individual.
From the Publisher:

Bill Cook epitomizes the American success story. His business ventures in medical devices, pharmaceuticals, genetics, real estate, retail management, and travel services have made him a billionaire. Yet, Cook continues to lead a modest life, involving himself in a variety of philanthropic activities that have included historic preservation and even a marching band. This riveting story is the first-ever biography of the entrepreneur who, working from the spare bedroom of his Bloomington, Indiana, apartment in 1963 with a $1,500 investment, began to construct the wire guides, needles, and catheters that would become the foundation of the global multi-billion-dollar Cook Group. Biographer Bob Hammel, with extraordinary access to Cook, his files, and his associates, has created a vivid portrait of this modern, multidimensional Horatio Alger -- quirky humor, widely varied interests, and all. Informative and inspiring, this book celebrates an exceptional self-made individual.
