From beginning to end, this was an interesting, funny, inspiring story of literally rags to enormous riches....a bumper car tale of one who would not be denied...who used charm and cunning to peacefully and intelligently work around seemingly insurmountable prejudice. This is a lesson for all who dream the otherwise unimaginable and patiently and creatively put that dream in motion, and hang in for the log roll it creates. This book permanently altered how I look at ideas and potential failure. It was an enlightening and embarrasing read (for myself as a middle class non-minority). Sure wish i could have met the man.
