Book Review: The Crazy Life of a Kid from Brooklyn by Bill Morgenstein
|5 stars, 1 review|
Bill Morgensteinabout this book: This is an autobiography starting with two friends; one Tom Sawyer type and the other like Huck Finn. Both of us were rascals in a bygone era just as the depression was ending and World War II was starting. My antics in High School and college would not be tolerated in today's world. The stories of army life and my work history are not only very funny but educational to those that will be entering the work world. I didn't make my early goal of playing for the N.Y. Yankees, but I accomplished another one where I wanted to be a corporate president before I was 35 years of age. The story goes on and gets interesting (and of course funny) from there including the successes, extensive travels and foibles that I encountered. It also includes many notable people that I met our interacted with.
I waited a long time before I wrote the book. It was at the insistence of my friends who used to listen to my stories every time we got together. They said that the stories were so comical and interesting that I must reduced them to writing. Writing comes easy to me and so in less than three months I had it written. The only difficulty that I had was researching the facts for accuracy. Luckily I had kept good files over the years so except for some necessary name changes it is quite accurate.
There are many reasons a person will enjoy the stories. For one it is a hysterically funny read which you won't be able to put down as one chapter flows into the other. If you are from the New York area or from the South, were in the army, college,like other cultures, enjoy history, travel or have or had anything to do with the Fashion business you will enjoy "The Crazy Life of a Kid From Brooklyn"
