I loved it' RON HOWARD 'I love the pithy, bright anecdotes, and at times his poignant narrative will bring you to tears' PATRICIA CORNWELL 'A compelling account of the life events that shaped an extraordinary man' NICHOLAS SPARKS ______________________________ HIS BEST STORIES ARE THE STORIES OF HIS LIFE * His father grew up in a New York poorhouse called the 'Pogie'. * He worked at a psychiatric hospital where he met the singer James Taylor and the poet Robert Lowell. Both were patients. * He was at Woodstock and was also an usher at the Fillmore East. * He was CEO of advertising agency J. Walter Thompson North America when he was thirty-seven. He wrote the ad jingle, 'I'm a Toys 'R' Us Kid'. * He once watched Norman Mailer and James Baldwin square off to fight. * He's played golf with three US presidents and has nine holes-in-one. * Dolly Parton sang Happy Birthday to him over the phone. She calls him Jimmy James. James says, 'I always wanted to write the kind of novel that is read and re-read so many times the binding breaks, and the book literally falls apart, pages scattered in the wind. I'm still working on that one.' ______________________________ 'A masterpiece of storytelling! Funny, poignant, brutally honest' ADMIRAL WILLIAM H.

You will enjoy the read' PHIL KNIGHT
