Peter Schwed - Turning the Pages. PDF

PDF I found and read this book before I started working at S&S. I learned about the history of the company from its founding through the mid 80's and the leaders over the years in the memoirs of Schwed, the former COO and board member. More than a few prominent author names are dropped but not much about the editors, culture or working life at S&S over the years. Filled with b&w photos of authors and S&S executives.
A bit dry and plodding; even the executive lunches are devoid of color and flavor.
The best parts for me were the last few chapters that delve into the reign of Dick Snyder (hailed by some as "a legend in his own mind")and his relationships with subordinates, including Michael Korda and Joni Evens
Curiously, it was published by Macmillan.
