DISCOVER THE REMARKABLE STORY AND THE TIME–TESTED BUSINESS LESSONS OF A TITAN IN THE OIL INDUSTRY

Hess: The Last Oil Baron tells the extraordinary story of Leon Hess, a man whose journey took him from the streets of Asbury Park, New Jersey, to the head of a global empire. A true example of a man who achieved the American dream, Leon Hess created an oil company that now does business in 23 countries on five continents.

Leon Hess′s life is not only inspirational, it is also filled with contradictions. Hess was a Jewish man who did business with some of the world′s most powerful Arab leaders, a sports enthusiast who refused to let his family inherit his beloved Jets football team, a tough businessman who also liked to give employees holiday gifts, a supporter of conservative politicians, and a philanthropist whose foundation supports pro–abortion causes.

Filled with exclusive interviews and insightful anecdotes, Hess reveals the astonishing story of a remarkable man who built a $25 billion oil empire.
