    Full of fantastic recommendations, Scribner's love of learning and books reignites my enthusiasm as well! I want to go through the book and collect the authors and even the reference books that he published. The publishing business has changed a lot but his life followed the tumultuous evolution of our society as well. A charming, interesting, and enthusiastic read!
