I enjoyed this memoir. I didn't grow up in Rochester, so it's fun for me to hear what it was like here in an earlier era. Well written, reads quickly.

One of the best books I've read in a good long while. Wonderful mix of social history, psychology, family dynamics. A good story, well told, firmly implanted in a concrete setting and era, very educational, but enough of a page turner that you don't ...more

H. Jackson Brown Jr.
“Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.”
H. Jackson Brown Jr.

John Lennon
“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
John Lennon

Albert Einstein
“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
