Add This Book of Houston Legends to Your Summer Reading List
If you’re a Houston-based entrepreneur or business owner looking for some good summer reading, you should add Hank Moore’s new book Houston Legends: History and Heritage of Dynamic Global Capitol to your must-read list. It tells the stories of the companies, community leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs who have made this city such a rich, diverse place to live and work. It presents Houston from a business perspective, chronicling 200 years of Space City history in a way that we really haven’t seen before, with anecdotes and insights that are relevant to the entrepreneurs, business owners, and leaders of Houston today.
The book is already available in ebook format for Kindles and NOOKs, with a nationwide release in paperback and hardcover slated for July 14 from Morgan James Publishing.
You might know Hank Moore from his previous books The Business Tree, The High Cost of Doing Nothing, or The $50,000 Business Makeover, among others. He’s also a business advisor and speaker who has presented think tanks for five U.S. Presidents. Not too shabby.
Houston Legends features chapters about the city’s legends in real estate and building, energy, entrepreneurship and innovation, banking and finance, retail, media, arts and entertainment, music, medicine and technology, sports, and more. With 2,000 of H-town’s legends covered in all, it’s safe to say that Moore presents what is probably the most comprehensive overview yet of the fascinating people who have shaped and defined our great city for generations.
Did you know Billy Preston was from Houston? Or Mary Kay of Mary Kay Cosmetics? Well, the book covers them all.
Houston Chronicle‘s Ken Hoffman recently asked Hank Moore, “What is it about Houston that produces so many successful artists, businesspeople, and scientists?”
Moore responded: “Houston never says no. Houston doesn’t tell people, no, you can’t accomplish your dreams. Houston says, if you want to become somebody, you’ve come to the right place.”
