Thomas and Ruddy were a pair of ambitious ten year olds who
lived on the same block in Charlotte, North Carolina. Pining
for some spending money, they approached their dads with a
scheme: Rent us your lawnmowers so we can start a mowing
business. A deal was struck and off they went. By August of
that hot summer the boys had a dozen accounts apiece—lawns

and time, and a pace of change like never before in human
history. Furthermore, the stage on which all this takes place is
