    This has been out of print for a long time and was hard to find. Friends of mine used to horde their copies and they sold for a hundred dollars. They give you a photocopied chapter of it to read when you go to a week long Gamelial Foundation training. They give you the chapter that breaks down all of Lewis' strategy and maneuvers during the Flint Sitdown strike. I'm so glad it finally got republished. Its good. Lewis' life sputters a bit when he splits from Roosevelt and then picks up again with This has been out of print for a long time and was hard to find.

    I read this book because I grew up in a coal mining town and my grandfather knew John L Lewis. I grew up hearing stories about him and of course he was a legend where I come from. Great book if you’re interested in the history of labor and one of its greatest leaders

    Excellent biography of the most important labor leader of the 20th century. Alinsky's relationship with Lewis coupled with his exceptional grasp of strategy and tactics makes this book a must read for anyone wishing to understand labor history and by extension, Alinsky's own Rules For Radicals.

    An interesting story. I read it because it was written by Saul Alinsky, but it provides an interesting insight into a fascinating part of American history. It's a reminder of what unions did achieve and it is a contrast to the comparative powerless of unions these days. An interesting story.
