Summary
"When Gordon Binder became an officer of the biotechnology company Amgen in 1982, the company faced a looming financial crisis, employed just a few dozen people, and had no viable products in the pipeline. By the time Binder retired as chairman and CEO in 2000, Amgen was the largest and most profitable biotechnology company in the world, boasting a market value of more than $60 billion, a workforce of seven thousand employees in eighteen countries, and two breakthrough products - Epogen and Neupogen - that have improved hundreds of lives and remain the bestselling genetically engineered drugs in history." "Science Lessons tells the story of Amgen's spectacular rise to the top, revealing the daring business strategies, ethical principles, and management values that brought it there."--BOOK JACKET
