“This memoir truly reflects its author, both in its subject matter and its happy-go-lucky tone…A welcome, fresh perspective for an industry that seems so far removed from its original ideas.”
- Peter Burrows, BusinessWeek

- Russ Juskalian, USA Today

Pretty decent read but the first half of the book is very much repetitive preaching of being honest and about his fathers virtues that were passed on.
Luckily, he also happens to be a good writer (or has good ghost writers). He's lived a very interesting life through a very interesting time, and has a lot to share about that. I really enjoyed reading about his childhood and career, and all of the kooky stories about goofing around when he grew up.
All in all, a very interesting read about a very interesting man
