Stepping-Up to the Plate

51dcdt61ral._sy400_.jpgChasing the Last Laugh: Mark Twain’s Raucous and Redemptive Round-the-World Comedy Tour by Richard Zacks is a well-researched, in-depth book about the famous author’s financial problems which precipitated a speaking tour around the globe.

I have always been a Twain fan.  He was so talented, clever, and humorous. This fine book provided me with a fresh look at his true nature. Based on Twain’s proactive response to his lacking business acumen and financial woes, his honorable reaction to the situation is inspirational. There is much to learn here. With innumerable current financial failures, this is a timely book with an insightful message. I recommend it!
