Summary This is a unique and intimate insider's account of the founding and growth of a small New York science and medical publishing company over the last 57 years. Bernhard Springer, the Berlin-born great-grandson of the founder of Springer-Verlag, started his own publishing company in 1950. For the next 20 years, he slowly but surely grew his company from the ground up, demonstrating a preternatural ability to foresee areas where quality publishing was needed and answering that need. Beginning modestly with books like the Livestock Health Encyclopedia, he published his first nursing title, Handboo.
