"Growing up Guggenheim is a tour de force, an enthralling story told with a directness that combines candor, humor, insight and reflection. Peter Lawson-Johnston has proven the brilliant shrewdness that led Harry Guggenheim to pick him, an unheralded cousin, to lead a new generation of an extraordinary family. The author's talent has ennobled the entire clan Guggenheim and has enriched the worlds of art and business with an entrepreneurial energy and commitment that presents a magnificent challenge to those who succeed to his responsibilities." - William J. vanden Heuvel, former U.S. Ambassador, European Office of the United Nations
