This book deserves a contract with a much bigger publisher. The story is breathtaking, daring, clever, and funny. This was an amazing person and I understand fully why the family felt the need to tell his story. I read straight through the book and couldn't put it down. It could use a professional editor's talents to smooth out some rough patches in wording, but none of that detracts from the drama and joy of the story. I have passed this story on to friends, and I recommend it to others. Good luck to this family in getting their story out. "The difference between truth and fiction is that fiction has to stay within the realm of the probable."-Mark Twain. This is almost an unbelievable story. At the end, I wish I could have met Mr. Salomon.
