Grant’s Tomb is the largest mausoleum in North America, yet the man it honors is little known and little understood by Americans today. Picone’s book explains why.
The text is dated, but it’s worth getting one of the many used copies online for the wonderful photos and illustrations.
The title is fun, but fortunately, this book is about much more than Grant’s iconic smoking and drinking. Busting myths about Grant’s life and achievements, Kaltman offers pithy and useful lessons for leadership.
