An entertaining memoir from a very volatile time in history. I'd have given it 5 stars, but there were too many typographical and grammatical errors, especially coming from an author who has spent his entire career (not just book author) as a writer. I think his teacher, Jim, would have given it back to him with lots of red ink.
