"Mr. Murray tells the remarkable Percy story in revealing detail, with the insight of an experienced reporter. He shows us Percy instituting an equal-employment-opportunity policy at Bell & Howell before it was either necessary or fashionable to do so; telling well-heeled high school students what it feels like to have to live in a house where rats and cockroaches crawl over your feet; and enduring the horror of his daughter's murder in the middle of the 1966 Senatorial campaign. Watching Percy in business ventures and political campaigns, we come to know who he is, how he feels, what he thinks and how likely he is to act."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
