"Only in America is the second volume of William Ungar's autobiography. Destine to Live, a Holocaust memoir, told a story of love, war, death, and escape in Nazi-occupied Poland. Only in America takes up Ungar's history from the moment he arrived in New York with the first group of survivors to be granted refuge in the United States. It recounts the spiritual odyssey of a man who went through hell but survived and ultimately became a captain of industry, thanks in large part to his
confident view of life, his personal faith, and his principled and selfless code of business ethics." "Landing in Manhattan penniless and alone, William Ungar parlayed a job on a factory assembly floor into a business which eventually became one of the Fortune Five Hundred largest privately owned companies. National Envelope Corporation, with 3,500 employees and 17 plants, is preeminent in its industry. The methods Ungar used to found, nurture, and expand the company through boom and
recession in a famously competitive arena constitute a superlative case study in management, finance, and imaginative entrepreneurship. Equally fascinating are the insights National Envelope's story provides into the sweep of American business history over the last half-century." "Mass merchandising, direct mail advertising, the rise of credit cards, the financing instruments that drove development to the suburbs and helped alter the inner city's manufacturing base, the productivity
revolution, the coming of the superstores, the place of ethics in business, now especially so relevant - all these are part of this compelling tale of business life told by a man whose spiritual rebirth is a testimony both to mankind's astonishing resiliency and to the vibrancy of a society that has empowered so many with hope and opportunity."--BOOK JACKET.
