I really enjoy history explained by Larry Schweikart. He brings detail and history together that makes an enjoyable read/listen. I recommend this book to anybody interested in history and anybody that is interested in the Founding Father principles.
Makes me appreciate life more & more every time I think of the story.
If you're a left wing, business bashing, why can't we all just live in harmony type person, you'll love the book. I found the content nauseating...cannot believe I actually finished it.
This will be the first book in years that I will not finish. This is not a biography of Steinbrenner. This is a rant by the author. It is choke full of Steinbrenner's horrible communications skills. Every turn is a Steinbrenner rage. Perhaps, that is all Steinbrenner ever did. But, an individual reaches fame & fortune by some means of good decisions. The first 2/3 of this book explains none of that. I am not a Yankees fan. As a matter of fact, I always root against them. I simply like biographies about what made successful people successful. You will not find it here.
I could hardly wait for the CD to begin every time I got in the car. Then my wife did the same when she listened to it. The historical characters and scenes were enhanced that gives otherwise mundane events real life and feeling. I did not feel that historical events were altered with the author’s enhancements. The Alamo felt a bit like listening to a novel. Very enjoyable.
Donny Deutsch has a wonderful story to tell and for the most part does a good job except for the foul language. The crude language was not necessary and takes away from any inspiration that could have been communicated. I am a fan of great people and leaders. Donny's insecurities illustrate that he is not one of them.
