The First Billion Is The Hardest
It’s Never Too Late to Top Your Personal Best. Both a riveting account of a life spent pulling off improbable triumphs and a report back from the front of the global-energy and natural-resource wars, The First Billion Is the Hardest tells the story of the remarkable late-life comeback that brought the famed oilman and maverick back from bankruptcy and clinical depression. Along the way, the man often called the “Oracle of Oil” shares the insights that have made him a legend–and describes the billion-dollar bets he is now making in hopes of securing America’s energy independence.
“Entertaining…both Adam Smith and Horatio Alger would find something to like in the rise of T. Boone Pickens.”
--Wall Street Journal
“The latest memoir from the Texas oilman…Pickens’ sauciness does entertain.”
“Sassy…breezes along…salted with earthy aphorisms.”
“Self-deprecating and audacious…overall, it’s decidedly informative about the machinations of business.”
--Dallas Morning News
“A fascinating, eye-opening book by one of America's greatest iconoclasts and entrepreneurs. Boone Pickens’ sense of daring and innovation has never been sharper. Readers will quickly realize that this billionaire's extraordinary achievements are but a warm-up for what he is about to do now.”
--Steve Forbes, President and CEO, Forbes Inc., and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes magazine
