From the dust jacket: "For Wallace E Johnson, both work and play are the Holiday Inns. This highly personal autobiography of the co-founder of the nation's largest hotel and motel chain combines a rags-to-riches success story of a man who has an abiding faith in God and trust in man with a practical, down-to-earth account of a phenomenal business venture. The author tells of his partnership with Kemmons Wilson, of the start of the chain of Holiday Inns and their development through franchising throughout the country and overseas, and of various other business triumphs. Mr. Johnson's story is a source of inspiration, being filled with a lively sense of humor, frankness about his early struggles as an entrepreneur, reminiscent anecdotes, and a religious respect and positive business philosophy that permeates his every activity."
