This is a great story Colonel Sanders writes about his very interesting life.

He was a sixth grade drop-out who later worked as a fireman, railroad worker, lawyer and delivered babies among other things. His business sense was remarkable, he worked his way through the depression and seemingly never stood still long.

I have so much admiration for this incredible man and the events and adventures that helped shape him.

I finished this book in two days of commuting on metrorail and bus. It's hard to put down, a most fascinating story (they say that truth is stranger than fiction). Now I will no longer just see the familiar face at KFC outlets; I actually know Col. Sanders (not by personal acquaintance, to be sure, but very close to it).

An extrodinary book that inspired my 81 year old father when he read it. This is hard to do and this is why I am desperatly trying to find the book. I lent mine out and it never was returned.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By M. Reynard VINE VOICE on December 4, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Ok, so I will admit that I was hoping there would be the secret herbs and spices blend hidden somewhere in this book. Or even some kind of recipe. But alas, there wasn't. But it was still interesting and considering Mr. Sanders himself wrote it at 83 years of age and having only a 6th grade education, it was a pretty good book.

Sanders describes his entire life from when he was a boy and left home at the age of twelve, all the way up through the time that he is writing the book. He seems to drift through jobs, never staying any place long, and did a lot of work on the railroads and also selling insurance. It actually wasn't until he was in his sixties that he really buckled down and got the chicken thing going. Which is where the book turned the most interesting as he describes how he franchised and ran the business and developed his methods for cooking chicken. I never knew they used pressure cookers to cook the chicken until now and it really explains how they can cook it so fast.

Sanders is a pretty persnickety guy and he makes sure you know it in this book. Of course he's also somewhat of a braggart and makes sure you know just who he influenced or how much he gave to charity. But I guess at 83 if you want to brag its as good a time as any. And he did do a lot of good with his life. His biggest flaw, although not really seen in the book, is his cussing it would seem. He reiterates several times that he has a pretty foul mouth. And he also likes to preach quite a bit as he has a distinct relationship with God in his mind.

The book could have greatly used an editor to be more reader friendly (or a better one if it already had one).
