Non-Fiction Memoir

The son of Greek immigrants who ran a diner in Kearny, Nebraska, Pete Peterson has lived the American dream on a scale few ever experience. In this delightfully candid and astute memoir, Peterson tells a story full of family, love, business, politics, ambition, idealism, failure and fulfillment.



Full of sharp portraits and humorous, telling descriptions of the many statesmen and financiers he's known over the years, and a deep level of personal revelation, The Education of an American Dreamer is a richly satisfying journey through a fascinating man's life.
