An account of the Benetton family and the rise of their controversial retail business, in which soft fabrics mix with high-octane petrol and Grand Prix motor racing, and coloured condoms combine with red-blooded Catholicism and capitalism.

Jonathan Mantle is the author of bestselling biographies of Jeffrey Archer and Andrew Lloyd Webber and his revelatory book on Lloyd's of London FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS received international coverage.Review:
'Stimulating and challenging ... BENETTON is a book that is both engaging and illuminating.' INDEPENDENT 'Fascinating.' IRISH TIMES 'A classic rags-to-ritches story' FINANCIAL TIMES 'Jonathan Mantle tells the tale at a cracking pace ... the material is genuinely rich, full of incident, and never dull' Tim Waterstone, MANAGEMENT TODAY 'BENETTON is a thorough gallop through the development of the company from a brother and sister operation to the global giant it is today.' IRISH TIMES 'Mantle tells their story well and does not shy away from addressing Benetton's controversial and shocking advertising campaigns.' SUNDAY TIMES 'BENETTON is a book that is both engaging and illuminating.' INDEPENDENT Luciano Benetton is the founder of one of the biggest family businesses of this century. His father died when he was 10 and he and his sister Giulana became the breadwinners for his mother and two younger brothers. Life in Italy after the war was hard but Luciano and Giuliana made good, and between them they built an empire. So big is Benetton that it has been through periods in which a new store opened somewhere in the world nearly every day. The figures in the book quote 8000 current stores in 120 countries. The Benetton story is presented by Jonathan Mantle. He takes a very straight approach to his subject which means there isn't a huge amount of commentary or interpretation. Input from observers outside the company is limited which means that while the book covers areas like the controversial advertising campaigns, the Formula 1 sponsorship problems, concerns with the Benetton method of shop franchising and with the use of sub contracted staff in manufacturing, it does so in a rather dry way. The upshot is a book which is easy to read and works excellently as a primer into the rise and rise of the Benetton empire, and, in particular, how it has diversified from clothing manufacture into other areas. But don't expect any revelations or dirt-dishing.' Sandra Vogel, AMAZON.CO.UK REVIEW
