Sir Hugh Sykes – Lighting the Furnace – The story of a burning ambition

From the summit of business success to the reshaping of a city … the achievements of Sir Hugh Sykes have been by any standard remarkable. In this, the first book to tell his story, he reveals the stark truth about what went on behind the scenes – the boardroom battles, the obdurate politicians and the clashes of ideals. Sir Hugh also sums up his formula for success in a book that is not only an exceptional business biography but a handbook for would-be entrepreneurs.
