IN THIS SUMMARY

Not only does the name Hershey mean chocolate to America and the world, it also signifies an inspiring and uniquely successful experiment in humanistic capitalism—one that has produced a business empire devoted to a higher purpose.

In Hershey, D’ Antonio paints a vivid portrait of a self-made inventor and American icon, set against the illuminating backdrop of the social, economic, political, and cultural histories of both the 19th and 20th centuries. Though neither authorized, nor sponsored by the Hershey Company, the book offers well-researched and solidly documented stories that not only engage the imagination but also provide invaluable lessons in the nature and purpose of business and wealth.
