'A Noble Function' is a very good read about the founding of a company most of us have used at one time or another. I was struck by the hard work and loyalty of the men and women who built the company, and the persistance of co-founders L.S. and Anna Mary Shoen to stick with the concept until the company was a success. I enjoyed the first-person insights from the poeple who were there in the beginning. Luke Krueger's style was perfect and made for easy and enjoyable reading. I'm still amazed that the first one-way trailer rentals were made with a handshake and a promise that the customer would find a business at their destination who would rent the trailer to another customer, and send the money to U-Haul ... that was an America that I would love to live in.
