message 1: by Cindy (new)

Cindy (cookiejarprincess) Does anyone know of a book about the Shoen family that founded the U-Haul company? They've had some crazy stuff go on, murder, suicide, fist fights between brothers at board meetings, etc. My mom would like to read about them, and so would I actually, but I haven't been able to find anything. Any suggestions? Thanks ~ Cindy

peg (mcicutti) | 50 comments I never read about the Shoen family but the book by Ronald J. Watkins, Birthright: Murder, Greed, and Power in the U-Haul Family Dynasty is about that family.

Cindy (cookiejarprincess) Thanks Peg, I'll check it out.

Cindy (cookiejarprincess) This is one seriously messed up family. The author of this book was cited with contempt for refusing over 100 orders to name his sources for this book. I definitely recommend it.

peg (mcicutti) | 50 comments I'm glad you like the book. I'm going to order it from Amazon now that I know it is worthwhile. Thanks,Cindy!
