G. Bruce Knecht has written and crafted a sensitive extraordinary account of people and economics within the pages of his new book, Grand Ambition. The story involves the reader emotionally as it reports the circumstances of the global financial meltdown of 2008 and weaves the stories of personal human lives around the design and building of a multi-million dollar yacht, the Lady Linda.

As the reader is drawn into the story, the thoughts and choices that define the life and grand ambition of the very wealthy Mr. and Mrs. Von Allmen, who conceived this yacht, are contrasted with the lives, thoughts and choices of the wealth of individuals who perform their daily work to build and launch this yachting dream structure of complex dimension.

With precision the author connects the details, giving the reader a clear blueprint of human thoughts and human actions. We see people come to terms with the causes and effects involved in living their daily work and lives. The author stimulates the reader to contemplate global questions of ethical, economical and environmental significance.
Grand Ambition is a great book written and designed around a true story that is well worth the reading! Release date: March 5, 2013 Simon & Schuster
