If you are looking for a summer read, this book is a treat! Hal grew up in the era just before my time, tough we are only a couple years apart in age. I delighted in standing tall and being just behind the allurement of kids a few years older. I loved hearing about the farm work, the Catholic-public school, the emerging sports culture. But more than all the hooks of familiarity I closed the book and had to congratulate Hal and his 12 siblings for rising from humble origins to outstanding accomplished individuals. Or was it that those of us from that farm stock are now just beginning to appreciate our genetics and environmental privileges.
