In his book he reveals he has, amongst other things:- Seen firsthand the events that led to the largest bankruptcy filing in US history The ex-chair of Sotheby's sent to prison. escaped a riot in Vietnam Faced death threats in NYC, AND; Meet with First Lady Nancy Reagan on the day her husband was shot, Michael Ainslie is the former president and CEO of Sotheby's, the former president and CEO of the National Trust for Historic Prevention, and a former director of Lehman Brothers. He was also the founding chairman of the Posse Foundation, serving in that role for 13 years and continuing today as an active board member and mentor to scores of Posse scholars and alums.
