“An excellent read! I’m very impressed with how the author was able to weave into the story so many historical icons such as J.F.K and Albert Einstein, and still keep the reader’s attention and intrigue. Moreover, the plot is developed, the writing is professional, and the characters are super engaging. I was educated and entertained simultaneously, and that is a mark of a great book. Journey through 5 decades with Leo and his son Michael, as the author tackles many of the social degenerations of the past century. Two thumbs up!” –Sarah Fast
