    Jess Jackson's story is one of a restless burning entrepreneur It seems the man threw himself 1000% into any idea he had law making wine buying and training racehorsesThis is the story of his many business decisions involved in pursuing his many passions his victorious triumphs and agonies of his defeatsI gave it 4 stars vs 5 because after awhile his contrarian patterns become pretty predictable But it's a pretty enjoyable book and very interesting insights into the behind the scenes business issues involved in the various aspects of the wine industry
