Tom Brokaw has written a book about the Greatest Generation, a
generation that grew up with fathers in the home who saw it as
their duty to instill in their sons a work ethic. The Greatest
Generation went on to win World War II. Newt Gingrich is right when
he warns that the newest generation does not understand or
appreciate the value of good, hard work.

Leonard Mandel embraces technology to an extent, but says he
still appreciates flipping the pages of books chronicling the

home that he often finds himself reading a chapter or two of
various books each day to whet his appetite.
