Every person who wants to hear a great story of rags to riches should read this. I'm not talking about some rapper who came from a gang. This guy came from a poop farming family and worked years to do what he did. Anyone can make it happen in America. No need for food stamps for free rent. Just read the book and you will see.

Great autobiography. It tells his life in its early years. Only touches on his television show, which you wish was more. On the other hand it tells the story of a by-gone era that (unfortunately) no longer exists. His was a time when an American could make it. Mr. Welk was born in North Dakota in a german community. He did not learn to speak english till he was 21. Still you will see how he was able to overcome all obstacles. His ingenuity was outstanding. Even more was his faith that was strong enough to overcome a chosen profession ripe with bumps. He writes in a totally humble way and really does not realize just what a genius he was. Buy it and have others read it. You will learn alot about what we have lost.
