Michael
Interesting story, especially for anyone who knows Ben Harper (the guy from Northwestern '03 not the musician). Anyone interested in the inner workings of Jimmy Hoffa's rise to and fall from power would enjoy this personal account.
George Presley
An interesting story of a modest and probably naive individual who's stubborn belief in the integrity of Jimmy Hoffa almost killed him. An odd mix of history and emotion as told by the principal character's son.

Shelves: memoir
An account of the author's father and his struggle to fight his union boss and therefore Hoffa. Great history of Teamsters and Hoffa as well as a nice story of a Minnesota trucker and his family.

I just wish the son had been more proud of his father's choices.
