John Johnson & Lerone Bennett = Great Team
"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.
"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.
Johnson's decision to train his daughter, Linda, to take over the family business. Longevity is beautiful.
How one man faced adversity and won.
