Jake’s background was in finance, and we wound up running one of the most successful and influential films studios of the later 20th Century. Their films include Ghandi, Chariots of Fire, The Mission, and The Killing Fields. The reason it is my favorite management book is that Jake comes into the business as an outsider and bring a business/financial perspective to an industry not known for either discipline, and he is unfailingly humble and open and honest about his and Goldcrest’s successes and failures.
