The authors have given us a wonderful inclusive look at Cardinal Cooke's entire life, his spirituality, his family background complete with a helpful look at the socioeconomics in that part of the country during his childhood and formation. I especially appreciate the inclusion of some of his notes and outlines. There is no doubt this man was self-disciplined and completely given over to God's will. This was my first experience reading Terrence Weber, and of course I have come to expect nothing less than excellence from Father Groeschel. I was not dissappointed.
