This book serves as both a biography and an autobiography, with L.K. dedicating significant time to the work and Robert Scudieri finishing the project after L.K.’s passing. Starting at the point of L.K.’s death of his father, he journeys on a path of self-discovery that leads him through milestones such as spycraft during the Second World War and interactions with key leaders of the world. Despite his successes, the one thing he yearned for – peace – was conveniently unavailable. It was not until his sixth marriage that he found the peace through learning about his Creator, and that peace guided him from that point on. L.K.’s legacy today is continued by his family that he invested in and his real estate business, which continues to operate off of his name.
L.K. starts at the beginning of his life memories with the search for his mother, and continues to tell his tale up to the point where the torch had to be passed on. This book is marketed as a guide to go from nothing to everything, but it is more than that: it is a peace of history from the Great Depression to today, one that captures the personal experiences during the formative years of the United States. Historical-minded individuals will find this title intriguing, along with those that are fans of biographies and tales of business acumen.
Written in a way that allows the reader to become engulfed in L.K.’s vivid revistation of his experiences, audiences will travel along with L.K. and find themselves identifying with the author, even those not personally acquianted with the mid to later twentieth century America.
