Book report

I recently finished 'Aventures of a Bystander' by Peter Drucker.  It's billed as his memoirs, and it is an interesting read about a man who led an interesting life.  It not all self centered, he spends a great deal of time talking about other people and does detailed analysis regarding how the people he profiled developed.  Many of the persons he covers were famous, rich, or both. 

I definitely found myself wondering if the world Peter Drucker lived in still exists.  Could a person create a life like he did?  Perhaps, but it's so far over my head that it seems impossible.
