Gustave Eiffel - the Career of an Entrepreneur

It was on our return from a holiday in August 1987 that my wife and I decided to take our children to Paris. We did this with some apprehension due to the peculiar driving habits of the Parisians and the fact that it always rains when we go there. We managed some of the famous landmarks, including the Eiffel Tower, before lunch. True to form the sky clouded over and promptly soaked us! However, while on the Tower, I found a small book dealing with the life and work of Gustave Eiffel, which whetted my interest. G.M. Lewis
