One would have to say that this book arrived in the most unusual way. We received a knock on our door and found the postal carrier with a postage due package. It was this book. While my wife scraped up the $1.12 to pay the postage due, I joked with the mail lady that if they were hoping for a good review, they weren’t starting out on the right foot.
Actually, the only reason that part appears in this review at all is because we are required by the FTC to disclose the details of any item we receive for review that is free or at a discount price. We have no idea how to go about disclosing that, other than to tell the truth of the matter.
Always Welcome: Nine Decades of Great Friends, Great Times & (Mostly) Great Deals by Welcome W. Wilson Sr. is a very well-told story of the life of a man with an unusual name with a flair for deals and evidently for great storytelling.
Readers are treated to a fascinating story of the life of a mover and shaker who was not born with a silver spoon in his mouth. In fact, it sounds like, at first, there were very few spoons in his house. But, the original WWW grew up during the depression when times were hard and people had to make ends meet however they could.
Mr. Wilson tells of his time in government and his meeting with multiple presidents of the United States, as well as other fascinating characters.
We find it to be a welcomed change from many memoirs we read, and there have been many, that Welcome doesn’t sugarcoat his mistakes. Where he made a mistake, he tells us. This is a great way to learn.
As a point of disclosures to the readers of our blogs: As our readers know, we are very Conservative, Fundamental Christians. That being said, Mr. Wilson discusses the opinion of himself and his wife on abortion. We do not agree with his stance nor do many of our readers. We do not think that influenced this review in any way.
Always Welcome is a very fascinating book and is one that should probably be read by anyone in business, politics, academie, or who is just plan interested in history. We award it all five stars and $1.12 postage due.
We were sent a complimentary copy of this book. The book arrived $1.12 postage due. We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.
We are disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.
