And it's there, aided by luck and street smarts, that he strikes it rich. The poor boy turns millionaire, moving from Ford franchise owner to CEO of Glencullen Motor Group. Although his early years are far more colorful and compelling than his later adult experiences, Cullen tells this rousing, heartfelt story with flair, honestly recounting the verbal and sexual brutality of some priests, the generosity of his community and his drive to succeed. I get the impression from this book that Bill Cullen loves himself. Every page seems to have someone stating how amazing the young Liam is including the Lord Mayor of Dublin on numerous occasions.

As a Dub living in the U.S. i bought this book for a little nostalgia. Its and interesting insight into the inner city Dublin when times were hard. But i find the constant third person patting on the back to be very off putting. I get the impression from this book that Bill Cullen loves himself. Every page seems to have someone stating how amazing the young Liam is including the Lord Mayor of Dublin on numerous occasions. Congrats on making a lot of money Bill but its not like you cured cancer, get over yourself and act like you remember where you came from rather than just writing a book about it.

This is a true story about a struggling Irish Family in Ireland showing how they not only succeed but reached the top of the ladder through hard work. This book is a great guide for all people who were not born with the golden spoon but have the desire to succeed. A great book for young people to see what hard work can accomplish and a great book for people of Irish decent to see how the Irish can stand on their own feet no matter what life puts in front of them. A very good read.
