I purchased this on my Kindle. There are so many mis-spelled words that at times I could not get the meaning of the sentence.
The premise of this book is that each of these 100 people made a pivotal decision at the age of 22 that had a profound effect on the rest of their lives and set the direction for their life. The author takes license on the age issue, sometimes 21, sometimes 23 to suit his needs.
The research is poor and any person who is a fan of pop culture could have written this book.
