The Wilson Way—The Official History of Wilson Audio
Wilson Audio is pleased to offer The Wilson Way, The Official History of Wilson Audio. This all-encompassing, 350-page volume covers in detail the company’s origins. It follows the life course of its two founders, Dave Wilson, and Sheryl Lee Jamison. It charts their paths to the point where they meet and details the events leading to the founding of Wilson Audio. It explicates their unique partnership, its foundation built upon each of their unique and complementarily diverse talents and skills, and further bound by a loving marriage. The story includes the details of Wilson’s struggles, some of which nearly led to the company’s failure. The narration follows the development of Wilson’s landmark products over the course of over 40 years. It describes the Wilsons efforts to build a team of professionals, and a progression plan that would ensure the longevity of Wilson Audio beyond their active involvement.
The book was written by John Giolas, who has known the Wilsons for more than 30 years and has worked directly with them for the past 18 years, a time during which he interviewed Dave and Sheryl Lee on dozens of occasions. When creating this book, the author was motivated by a quest for the salient truths underlying this uniquely American entrepreneurial story. In that effort, the Wilsons opened up their archives and their corporate vaults. John perused hundreds of design drawings, documents, and over 10,000 photographs searching for those elements would enhance the telling of the story. Out of these, author curated and restored nearly 400 photographs, documents, and hand drawings for the book, many of which are revealed in the book for the first time. The hardcover book was printed using the highest production values and the best materials. The special archival paper renders the photography with clarity and beauty. This heirloom-quality book will last for generations.
