Professor Sicilia's first book – The Entrepreneurs: An American Adventure, with Robert Sobel (Houghton-Mifflin, 1986) – tells the stories of three dozen leading U.S. entrepreneurs across a range of industries. The two in-depth corporate histories that he published with Harvard Business School Press – Labors of a Modern Hercules: The Evolution of a Chemical Company (1990), with Davis Dyer; and The Engine That Could: Seventy-Five Years of Values-Driven Change at Cummins Engine Company (1997), with Jeffrey L. Cruikshank – explore the inner workings of two technology intensive multinationals and the broader trends they exemplified in postwar business. In The Greenspan Effect: Words that Move the World's Markets (McGraw-Hill, 2000) – voted a Library Journal Best Business Book of the Year – Sicilia and Cruikshank dissect the influence of the powerful Fed Chairman's public pronouncements on investor behavior.
