Publisher's Summary

Universally acclaimed when first published in 1955, The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit captured the mood of a generation. It was a national best seller that was made into an award-winning film; it was translated into 26 languages; and its title has become a permanent part of our cultural vocabulary. Today, it is more relevant than ever.

Here is the story of Tom and Betsy Rath, a young couple with everything going for them: three healthy children, a nice home, a steady income. They have every reason to be happy, but for some reason they are not. Like so many young men of the day, Tom finds himself caught up in the corporate rat race - what he encounters there propels him on a voyage of self-discovery that will turn his world inside out. At once a searing indictment of corporate culture, a story of a young man confronting his past and future with honesty, and a testament to the enduring power of family, The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit is a deeply rewarding novel about the importance of taking responsibility for one's own life.

    "great read/listen "

    I feel close to Tom despite the fact I haven't experienced anything nearly close to his situation. the book is very entertaining and gives first hand perspective on life in the 1950s
