Michael Bloomberg

  • Michael Bloomberg est un des personnages publics les plus fascinants du monde des affaires, mais aussi l'un des plus atypiques. Entrepreneur et philanthrope, maire de New York pendant douze ans et de longue date engagé en faveur de l'environnement, Bloomberg déjoue les stéréotypes et échappe à toute classification.
    Né dans une modeste famille juive de la côte est des États-Unis, il entre, après un MBA à Harvard, chez Salomon Brothers à la fin des années 1960. Licencié en 1981, il crée à 39 ans une start-up qui va devenir l'un des plus grands empires de l'information financière, Bloomberg LP.
    Bloomberg par Bloomberg nous entraîne en plein coeur de l'ambiance euphorisante de Wall Street, et au-delà... Mêlant histoires personnelles et analyses éclairantes sur l'économie, l'innovation technologique et l'entrepreneuriat, Michael Bloomberg y dévoile également son approche du management et du leadership, où le développement de l'humain occupe une place absolument centrale.
    Cette deuxième édition de l'autobiographie de Michael Bloomberg apporte une résonance très actuelle au parcours de cet innovateur iconoclaste, « disrupteur » de la première heure dont le fameux Bloomberg Terminal a révolutionné l'accès à l'information financière. Plus que jamais, il souffle sur ce rêve américain là un vent de liberté salutaire et une profonde foi en l'humain.

  • Michael Bloomberg rose from middle-class Medford, Massachusetts to become a pioneer of the computer age, mayor of New York, one of the world's most generous philanthropists, and one of America's most respected-and fearless-voices on gun violence, climate change, public health, and other issues. And it all happened after he got fired at the age of 39. This is his story, told in his own words and in his own candid style. After working his way through college and graduating from Harvard Business School, Bloomberg landed on the bottom rung of a Wall Street firm and worked his way up to partner. But in 1981, he was forced out of the firm. With an idea for computerizing financial data, Bloomberg started his own company. And, since personal computers barely existed, he built his own. Specially designed for Wall Street traders and analysts, the Bloomberg Terminal revolutionized the world of finance. Under Bloomberg's leadership, his company grew rapidly, playing David to the Goliaths of finance and media-and making Bloomberg one of the world's wealthiest men. Bloomberg by Bloomberg offers an intimate look at the creative mind and driven personality behind the Bloomberg brand. He describes in vivid detail his early Wall Street career, both the victories and frustrations, including a personal account of what it was like to be fired and given $10 million on the same day. He combines personal stories with penetrating insights into business and technology, while also offering lessons from his unique approach to management. There is no one in business or politics quite like him-or who has had more success in both areas.
