I started with Seagram the day I was born. It wasnt the easiest thing imaginable to work for a famously irascible father and with a sometimes disputatious extended family of siblings, cousins, in-laws, and, later, sons, but Edgar M. Bronfman not only survived, he triumphed, to help build one of the most distinguished companies in the world. Good Spirits is filled with anecdotes about both the making of a businessman and the making of a business, as Bronfman learned Seagram from the ground up and discovered, sometimes the hard way, just what worked and what didnt. With wisdom and humor, he distills a lifetime of business lessons into a highly readable memoir, and furnishes us with stories both illuminating and cautionary about how to recognize opportunity, delegate wisely, analyze properly, keep cool in a crisis, gain credibility (both inside and outside the company), and, especially, how to achieve balance - in ones business and in ones life. It is an inside look at innovative leadership for this generation - and the next.
