I went to the dentist today and wound up selling three copies of The Making of an Icon: The Dreamers, The Schemers, and The Hard Hats Who Built the Gateway Arch. My dentist bought one, the hygienist bought another, and the lady who took my money bought a third.
I signed the dentist’s copy: “Here’s a book you can sink your teeth into.”
