A magical, true story, Bob Brown's beguiling memoir takes readers behind the scenes at pivotal moments in recent history, where lessons learned at his grandmother's knee helped him shape the America of today.
Born into poverty, Robert Brown was raised by his grandmother to think differently about success. For example, "If you want to lead," she told him, "be invisible." And, "Before entering a room, let God in the room first." But could a quiet man operating by such humble principles actually make a difference? Bob Brown's untold story delivers an inspiring case study in how to accomplish exactly that.
Brown came to play pivotal, mostly unseen roles alongside the great and the powerful of our time. For example: on the trail of the mob in 50s Harlem with a young Robert F. Kennedy; helping all-white corporate titans at Woolworth integrate their lunch counters; at her request, accompanying Corretta Scott King to Memphis the day after her husband had been shot; advising Nixon on how to defuse racially charged street demonstrations; becoming the only person allowed to visit Nelson Mandela in Pollsmoor prison in Cape Town.
Called "a world-class power broker" by the Washington Post, Robert Brown has been a sought-after counselor by an impressive array of the famous and powerful, including every American president since John F. Kennedy. BECOMING MR. BROWN blends a heart-warming, historically fascinating account with memorable success principles that will speak to the Mr Brown in all of us.
