Eddie Brown/Beating the Odds
A story with as many surprising turns as a Dickens novel,
"Beating the Odds" recounts in vivid detail how a twelve-year-old
moonshine runner, playing the back roads of Central Florida in a souped-up Ford
pickup, went on to become an electrical engineer and highly regarded IBM
technocrat, a vice president and star portfolio manager with T. Rowe Price, a
media celebrity, and finally head of Brown Capital Management, one of the most
successful financial services firms in the United States.
