John Johnson & Lerone Bennett = Great Team
What did you love best about Succeeding Against the Odds?
"Succeeding Against the Odds" by John Johnson is one of my favorite books. I've re-read the print version several times over the years. It was exciting to learn that an audio version was available, read by the historian Lerone Bennett.
What other book might you compare Succeeding Against the Odds to and why?
"Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. Johnson references this book in his autobiography. The two books complement each other well because each is about achieving goals in the face of adversity.
Which scene was your favorite?
Johnson's decision to train his daughter, Linda, to take over the family business. Longevity is beautiful.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
How one man faced adversity and won.
