BEHIND THE DRIVE: 99 INSPIRING STORIES FROM THE LIFE OF AN AMERICAN ENTREPRENUER. I found this book fascinating. I love learning about people through their works, and there's nothing better than stories from close friends, co-workers, and family. It gives amazing insight as to who the person really is. I really enjoyed the forward by Mitt Romney and the stories are incredible. Some of the people that shared I know about and others I didn't, but either way I learned about how Larry Miller was a wonderful friend, businessman, father, and friend. He is a great example of we all can be toward our fellow men and to become great people in the process. They are lessons that we all can take to heart and apply to our lives. This is a book I would highly recommend to anyone who is looking to improve their lives.

Larry H. Miller played by his own rules. Owner of an NBA franchise and founder of one of the country's largest automotive retail groups, Larry was a college dropout who went on to buy or build nearly one hundred businesses. Having started his career behind the service counter of an auto parts store, Larry became known as a masterful entrepreneur, a self-made billionaire, and a philanthropist. But he was so much more. 
Behind the Drive contains ninety-nine uplifting and untold stories from every aspect and era of Larry's life. Contributors range from NBA legends to religious officials, business moguls to political leaders, employees to childhood friends, and colleagues to competitors.
These stories of an "ordinary-yet-extraordinary" man will inspire readers to find and live their own greatness by following Larry's example of working hard at something he loved, applying his God-given talents in service to others, and allowing his life to be guided by something greater than himself. This book is a guide for anyone who wishes to find success and make contributions in today's busy world.
