Comments From Other Readers
“The life of Colonel Sanders is really an inspiration. With little more than a 6th grade education he elevated himself above his humble and less than auspicious beginnings to become a world-renowned icon. From military service, to Law School, and finally one of the world’s most unknown and yet recognizable business men, Sanders led a life that would have beaten down a greater man only to rise above it all. This book takes you on a short journey through his life, giving a snapshot glimpse of the treasured American icon.” Charles – Wyoming (US).
“This is a great story Colonel Sanders writes about his very interesting life.
He was a sixth grade drop-out who later worked as a fireman, railroad worker, and lawyer among other things. His business sense was remarkable, he worked his way through the depression and seemingly never stood still long. I can really admire him. This book was well written and a quick read that will really fill in some of the blanks about who he was.” Samanta – Nebraska (US)
