From critically acclaimed author and award-winning journalist Joshua Kendall comes a mesmerizing look at the private obsessions and compulsions that drove seven American icons, including Steve Jobs, Thomas Jefferson and Ted Williams. What can we learn from these individuals? Kendall provides an anecdote-rich examination of the link between greatness and quirky behavior.
