Harold Van Arnem

Few people have had a more fascinating personal and business life than Harold “Sonny” Van Arnem. From a Midwest middle-class family, he surmounted a range of obstacles, including a near-fatal accident that ended what might have been a career as a professional athlete, to ride America’s computer revolution from its first primitive days.


     As one of the most successful pioneers of computer applications and leasing, he accumulated assets enabling him to purchase professional sports teams and socialize among some of the world’s wealthiest and most colorful personalities. His adventures in film production, auto racing, and international business are the stuff of legend.


     But it was not always fun. A tragic and senseless accident left his daughter a quadriplegic, and the behavior of various business partners and associates, served as painful lessons in trust.


     None of it succeeded in dampening his spirit. Trace the business and personal life of a man who refused to be beaten. Both tragic and humorous, this true story of strength and determination is sure to leave a lasting impact on every reader.
