    Story
    (156)

    The engrossing, often scandalous saga of one of the wealthiest, longest-lasting, and most colorful family dynasties in the history of American commerce—a cautionary tale about prosperity, profligacy, hubris, and the blessings and dark consequences of success. This engrossing, vivid narrative captures the Busch saga through five generations. At the same time, it weaves a broader story of American progress and decline over the past 150 years. It's a cautionary tale of prosperity, hubris, and loss.

    Jeremy McGough says: "Couldn't stop listening..."
    "Bitter, boring business book"

    Story
    What would have made Bitter Brew better?

    IT,s basically a business statistics book. There were some wall st. compilations of of ordinary things that happen to modern families that have addicted children, and some un
    fleshed out quotes.I skimmed the book.


    What was most disappointing about William Knoedelseder’s story?

    THey lied about the human interest.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Berkrot’s performances?

    Yes


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger that I spent the money.


    Any additional comments?

    Nothing wrong with a German writing about German power here.But be honest about what it is.
