A glimpse of the savvy that built a global corporation from scratch

HESS: THE LAST OIL BARON profiles a titan of the oil industry, mapping the journey of the quintessential American dream. The story of Leon Hess follows an immigrant kosher butcher's son as he builds an oil dynasty that may never be matched. The multinational, multi-billion-dollar company began with a single second-hand delivery truck and the Rockefeller-caliber business acumen of one young man. Interviews with former employees, beneficiaries, and even his high school sweetheart provide an insider's perspective on the man behind the legacy, allowing today's aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to learn from one of the nation's most inspiring success stories.

Leon Hess' strategies and techniques can be emulated and imitated, but his entrepreneurial fire is something altogether more rare. HESS provides readers with a glimpse of the man whose unrivaled ambition changed an industry and a nation.
