There are some books that a reader just can't put down; other books that a reader can pick up and start reading wherever it opens; and some books that are so fascinating and fun that a reader wants to read them again. Diary of a Rich Man's Kid by Charles Pettijohn, Jr., is just such a book. His family stories and remembrances of his childhood through adulthood are perceptive and clever, and as they are being read, the reader realizes how important it is to pass on his own family's stories and memories. In fact the book is a lesson in the importance of family, dreams, and, yes, careers, in the life of an individual. I humbly recommend this book to all, and maybe some of us will begin jotting down family memories of our own. Enjoy!
