This excellent memoir traces the story of Frank Biondi’s epic forty-year career taught me much and reinforced many important things to remember as a businessperson, father, spouse, and friend. You are your values--but only if you truly live them. The way you treat others is so much more important than material things, titles, or feeling important. We should all strive to Be Frank! -- J. Alexander Greenwood, host and producer, Mysterious Goings On podcast
