I just want to thank all of the people who continue to read Crosley: Two Brothers and a Business Empire that Transformed the Nation.
To be honest, when I wrote it, I had no idea that it would take off the way that it has. But it’s been almost eight years since it was initially released, and people are still reading it and leaving reviews.
The Crosley brothers in the book are my great uncle and my grandfather. I originally wrote Crosley as a tribute to my family, of whom I’m exceptionally proud. I’ll be forever grateful to all of the folks who decided that they actually wanted to read about my family and learn from them.
The book has been a New York Times bestseller, and of course, it’s led me down a road to write more books. The Crosley brothers became fictional characters in my thriller, Cincinnatus, for which I also researched Coral Castle, and later wrote a book about that! It’s been quite a ride, and it seems that the ride isn’t over yet.
All of this is to say that Crosley has become so much more than I ever imagined. All of the people who have read the book, and all of the book I’ve had the privilege of speaking to–I appreciate every one of you.
