KIRKUS REVIEW

There has been no autobiography since Personal History that rivalled that -- in my opinion -- for its human flavor, its rare combination of good adventure, brilliant writing, fine characterization. Now comes The Way of A Transgressor which bids fair to run it a close second, and -- for men readers particularly, possibly to rival it. It's exciting reading, this intimate story of a man whose zest for life and new trails carried him into strange places. Athlete, engineer, salesman, journalist, sportsman, and experimenter in life -- he has told his story with the gusto, honesty, humor and genius for narrative that make him the man he is. Europe and America, Asia and Africa -- a wide horizon, and the imagination to see deeply into it all. A grand book, and sure to hit tops overnight. Watch also for copies of his earlier book, Sailing Across Europe, published some years ago by The Century Company, which is certain to be in demand once that phase of his adventures comes to the fore again. A chance for some plus sales, if you can pick some up.
