News & Opinion: Sadness

By: Jack @ 1:43 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Today is the end of an era. A. David Schwartz, my boss and best friend, died from complications of lung cancer, as a non smoker, at 65. His obit is here. He had been in remission for the past nine months and then it came back with a vengence and he died within a week at home with family and friends.
Three different times at this weekend's book convention, I was told that I should write a book about what I do. If it ever happens, which I doubt, the book will be about the creation of the friendship between two of the most different people you can imagine and the company we created together.
I and we will miss him.
