Description: What makes entrepreneurs different from the rest of us? Even when they are rich they keep on working. What drives them? Money? Power? Applause? In this book, a companion volume to "In Good Company", 19 Irish entrepreneurs answer these questions honestly for Ivor Kenny. Their backgrounds and businesses are as varied as they are - but in one thing they are united: they are unemployable. None of them wants to work for anybody else. They value above all else their freedom and independence. The entrepreneurs featured are: Gillian Bowler, Austin Darragh, Gerry Dempsey, Dermot Desmond, Oliver Freaney, Billy Hastings, Eddie Haughey, Mark Kavanagh, Sir Desmond Lorimer, Alistair McGuckian, Gerry McGuinness, Carole Moffett, Joe Moran, Emmett O'Connell, Feargal Quinn, Martin Rafferty, Geoff Read, Tom Roche, John Teeling.
