Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

To say that Sam Aldrich has had an unusual and interesting life would be a serious understatement. Born into a life of wealth and privilege, Aldrich was expected to follow his father into a career of high finance. But Aldrich had other ideas as these lively and thoroughly entertaining memoirs make clear. At the age of 25, he danced in London with Queen Elizabeth II. At 37, he was marching with Martin Luther King in Selma, Alabama. He served as deputy police commissioner in New York City, director of the State Division for Youth, and worked in numerous other capacities in the public sector before switching gears to become an educator in mid-life. The memoirs are a fascinating portrait of a most unusual man. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
