The Story of Marquette Electronics
Mike Cudahy

"In this remarkable success story, Michael Cudahy's Irish wit, compassion, and fascinating background come shining through. . . . Mike had a vision. The resulting medical advances improved the quality of life in communities across America."—from the foreword by Tommy Thompson, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services

"Joyworks proves an MBA is no substitute for common sense, hard work, and an ability to work with people."
—I. Andrew (Tiny) Rader, former CEO, Allen-Bradley Co.

Cudahy's book also includes, in an interesting appendix, an account by his father, U.S. Ambassador John Cudahy, of an interview with Adolf Hitler in 1941.
