I was really impressed by this little book. Should be a movie - minus the Paris part!
I read this book some time ago but I thought it was very informative and worthwhile.
Very well written and interesting bio of Conrad Hilton. Has a lot on the history of New Mexico, where he grew up.
From proprietor of the Mobley hotel in a dusty Texas oil town to the world's premier statesman of international hospitality, Conrad Hilton's spectacular rise helped rewrite the boundless opportunity of the American Dream.
Here, in his own words, Conrad Hilton recounts the challenges and triumphs of a life brimming with adventure, celebrity, big business and unforgettable moments. In glamourous destinations across the globe, through more than seven decades of turbulence and prosperity, this is a thoroughly engaging saga.
The world's best-known innkeeper lives up to the legend that helped bring the world closer together. An inspiring personal memoir that resonates with faith, perseverance, compassion and phenomenal success.
It's an older book, worn by reading, but by no means abused...very enjoyable.
