Initially I found this book at the Brooklyn Public Library (the central one), I stumbled upon it accidently. I read it within a week while commuting to and from work. This book was very insightful about The Colonel's life, hardships that he faced, how he started in the restaurant business and how his empire grew. At the end I concluded that the people that he sold his company, the rights and the image to screwed him. Yeah, Sanders signed the contract and everything, but I do not think that at his age he fully understand what he was selling/giving away and surrendering his rights to. I definitly reccomend this book to anyone, whether you from business industry or just a reader. This is an old/outdated book in today's standards and maybe hard to find, but it is a good read for sure.

A pretty good look at a hard working American success story. There is always some rough grit in an honestly told story. This meets that criteria. The ole Colonel was a hard nosed man. But that's what is part of the ingredients of the mix which come together when a man (or woman, for that matter!) has ambition and drive. This is a pretty well told story which sets you down in the South and gives you abundant mind visuals of what things were like in those times.
