Excellent autobiography by first time author Bill Morgenstein. Proves you don’t have to be a well known figure to lead a fascinating exciting life.
This autobiography has drama, comedy and great life lessons. A must read!!
A Quick, Interesting, Informative Read
The fast pace of the book, written in anecdotes, introduces the reader to Bill in a way that makes you feel you actually know him. Besides being a life story, it is an interesting insight into the evolution of the shoe business. I enjoyed it.
Outstanding, entertaining and informative!Thoroughly enjoyed this great piece of work written by a man I’ve had an immense amount of respect for over many years. I found myself laughing out loud – very loudly – during flights and elsewhere. I was constantly drawn in. Mr. Morgenstein’s stories bring amazingly clear images to mind. Many come forward with film-like clarity. The kid from Brooklyn’s college days alone are worthy of a film! He has been quite the globetrotter and takes you along for the trip. Strongly recommended.
The Crazy Life Of A Kid From Brooklyn…This book was a breath of fresh air and I couldn’t put it down. The travels and life experiences if the author flowed beautifully. Traveling most of the world, visiting exquisite hotels, gourmet dining had it all. Business associates came up throughout the book making me feel that I knew these guys and was traveling with the author whenever names came up. .. There is successes and failures, comedy and tragedy, and family. .. Most of the comical things written had me cracking up, where again, I felt that it could happened to me. ……. This is perhaps the best book I’ve read in years. I recommend this book to everyone of all ages. I’ll give this book “5 stars”.

I recently read “The Crazy Life of a Kid from Brooklyn” by Bill Morgenstein and found it very enjoyable. Like Bill, I lived in those times: I served in the air force in the Korean War, I grew up in Brooklyn, and I spent the better part of my working life in the shoe industry. Bill’s book talks about all these things.
Bill Morgenstein’s book has a ring of authenticity about it, and brought me to laughter at times and brought back memories of my youth. I recommend it highly.
To me it was definitely a page turner.Although I am Canadian born, I spent a lot of time of my adult years in Brooklyn. I enjoyed reading about the shoe stores that Bill Morgenstein was involved with. I shopped in many of them, and have many fond memories of the fantastic styles and bargains that I was able to buy,at these wonderful show stores; especially being a young woman on a fixed budget, after all I had young children that needed to be clothed. Mother always seemed to com last. I enjoy reading what the author did after he left the shoe business and how his life revolves around finance. I hope that he writes more about his life as I am sure there is much more that will keep the reader interested. Thanks Bill for writing this book.
The Crazy Kid Is an Enduring Friend I have had the Privilege to have met and know.I personally know Bill and met him through my relationship with one of our Mutual Employments. Me with Sterling Payments and Bill with Sterling Funding and both attending a annual convention at the Don Cesar in St Petersburg Beach several years ago.I personally can relate to a lot of his lifes experiences mentioned in his book, good and bad. I have grown to admire and respect Bill through the years and enjoy our sharing of emails on a Daily basis for several years. The Book is a testimony to his integrity, his loyalty to Family first, then friends and Business Associates, as revealed by his wit and humor throughout the Book. If you ever get the chance to sit down with Bill over a drink and a Cigar, I highly recommend you seize the opportunity. Falling short of that opportunity I suggest you purchase and read his Book. That will give you the opportunity to befriend him as closely as you could by any other means short of meeting and enjoying personal fellowship with Him. I and my wife both give this Book a well deserved 5 stars and know there are Sequals yet to be written.
