Thomas J. Bata Remembered
The purpose of this book is to pay homage to Thomas J. Bata (1914 – 2008) and to pay back some of the debt that we still owe him, which is one of the reasons why it is in two parts.
In the first part, thirty-two different people from all walks of the life paint thirty-two different pictures of this extraordinary man. They all share their personal experiences, ranging from brief encounters to long friendships, from a few interesting memories to lifelong inspiration.
In the second part we offer a quick overview of his vast achievements in business and enterprise.
