From an Italian ghetto to the Board Room, only in America.

Here is a first person memoir of the son of an immigrant factory worker through the Great Depression and WW II, as portrayed by Tom Brokaw's third person account in the Greatest Generation.

Passing the Torch tells the Horatio Alger story of the odyssey that culminated as the CEO of a nationally known company. It is an inspirational message to all, a tribute to his many contemporaries.
It tells of the 7day-a-week struggle for a college degree, the humorous experience with the use of 'no doze" pills, for a magna cum laude graduation attended by his sons, including the struggle he faced as a 'vowel" person.

The story does sound like a fairy tale and it indeed has a fairy tale ending, including a beautiful love story, which has encompassed 60 years.

Napoleon has said Providence is on the side of the last survivor. Here is the charming tale of the 'last survivor."
