This is a book about successful family owners and their businesses. It complements literature that has a focus on fault-lines, failures and problems seen as intrinsic to the family ownership of a business. Much of the literature on family-owned businesses has featured failed family ownership and enterprises and this should not be seen as synonymous with family ownership. An aspiration of this book is to describe the counterforces to these destructive dynamics. We describe and explore the resources and strategies families deploy as owners and leaders.
