John Campbell’s fast-moving, action-packed memoir celebates the life of a centenarian and who was both successful as a centurion and a businessman.
The attentive reader will discover a great deal more than an American’s long life and successful career. His hundred-year life story is set in the context of many of the great political, social, news, entertainment and leisure-time changes that have transformed the way we live our everyday lives.
His life-journey is that of a man who actually was “in the arena” in the trenches of war, bigtime broadcasting and the growth of the Leisure-time industries. He was always willing to try and dare new things. As Theodore Roosevelt might have said, “his place will never be with those cold and timid souls, who know neither victory nor defeat.”
