    Mendel and Me

    I really enjoyed this book. I actually had a hard time finding it around town and Barnes and Noble was the only store that had copies. It is an easy read with lots of personality. I am a distant relative of Mendel and I learned so much about my Great-grandparents when I read the Chapter about his early life. When I was a child, Mendel would appear at family funerals. He always seemed bigger than life to a meer child. This book created a different image of him in my head. He was a sincere and effective politician during his day...one of the best! A great biography and very well-written!
