It occurred to me that maybe there is some benefit to government over-reaching after all! In their attempt to escape the bureaucratic clutches, tycoons turn over their land holdings to local parks, etc.
Great and quick read, highly recommend.
Now I do, thanks to Nancy Kriplen and her well-written book! Follow MacArthur from Chicago to Palm Beach. Get to know this man, who was extremely frugal throughout his life, and whose legacy now enriches us all.
I hope to be more than a billionaire someday, and this book gives great insight.
Now done reading it, I have looked to find more about MacArthur, and most searches refer to this book. I wish there were more.
