Charles Schribner is an interesting guy. He was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, and this comes through in his book but not in an arrogant or snotty way. However, he is a man of deep faith who really cares about his fellow man.

His knowlege of art and music makes this book worth reading. He lives his faith and relates how it helps him though the tough times in life.
