I don't quite know how I ended up enjoying this book, but I did. My daughter attended the College of Wooster in northeastern Ohio, and that's where the home products firm Rubbermaid was founded. This book was being sold at the local, charming bookstore. I can't imagine it sold more than a few hundred copies.
But somehow, even though much of the book was Mr. Noble describing his financial accounting methods for creating a solid yet innovative company, it was actually interesting.
