Well I was retty disappointed While Miller s life was amazing the story was Healthier Together poorly written Yes heassed away before the book got off the ground which must count for something But I doubt that the autobiography would have been much better if Miller and Robinson had completed it before LHM s tragic death due to the randomness of Miller s topics his disjointedness in the timeline and his yo yo treatment of certain topics He skims over his childhood which would have been very interesting to read about indepth and gets way detailed only about his initial The Haunting of Sunshine Girl purchase of the Jazz which as the only detailed section was very enjoyableWhat does Larry H Miller teach me If you go to work for 90 hours a week and have tons of ambition you will make millions of dollars and own an NBA teamand regret missing your children s lives And kill your body I received this memoirs style book for Christmas It was very interesting to me having grown up in Utah during Larry Miller s entreprenurial career Doug Robinson who helped him write it is a columnist in the Deseret News I like his writing It is written subject by subject I liked reading about what motivated him and also the simplyut business tips at the end This is a man who used the gifts he was given was careful not to let money change his core values and who understood his stewardship as it related to sharing his successes with others When he was sixteen years old Larry Miller came home one summer night to find all his Number the Stars Read by Blaire Brown 10 year old Annemarie Hansen and her best friend Ellen Rosan often think about the way life was before he was If it now is at all like in Copenhagen filled with food storages and the Nazi solders marching in their town Then Annemarie is asked to go on a dangerous mission Somehow she must find the strength to do itLois Lowry has written over seven young adult novels and has received remmunius awards including the Routledge Library Editions prestigious New Berry Medal for the giverWhen read by Blaire Brown 10 year old Annemarie Hansen and her best friend Ellen Rosan often think about he way life was before the war If it now is like in Copenhagen in filled with food storages and the Nazi solders marching in their town Then Annemarie is asked to go on a dangerous mission Somehow she must find the strength do itLois Lowry has written over seven young adult novels and has received remmunius awards including therestigious New Berry Medal for the giverWhen he was sixteen years old Larry Miller came home one summer night to find all his Crisis in Bethlehem possessions sitting in three bags of the darkened house The door was locked This was really a great book Larry H Miller did so much for the state of Utah but in therocess kept his integrity and good reputation He was very honest in his book not only about his many accomplishments but also the ventures that didn t work out and the things he regretted Like not spending enough time with his kids Back in 20072008 I started listening to an AM radio show on my way home from work and every Thursday on this radio show Larry Miller would have an hour where he and the host would just talk about anything and everything Since it was a sports radio show they talked a lot about sports and the Jazz but Larry would also talk The Return of the Twelves politics finances business andretty much anything else It was always a great show to listen to because Larry was so honest and he had no reservations about anything The best word to describe what I felt about him after listening to this Dizzy Jimmy program was genuine You could tell that he wasn t trying to be anyone else than Larry Miller I gained a lot of respect for the man after that and I was deeply saddened to later hear on the samerogram about his death When his autobiography came out I was really excited to read it It really was a great book and I recommend it to everyone I only gave it three stars because I wished that he would ve gone into details about some of his business relationships I was hoping to learn about his falling out with Dave Checketts and about his relationships with other Jazz team members Besides all of that it was still a great book and a great example of Larry being genuine open and honest throughout the entire book Larry Miller is a great example of what you can accomplish when you really work hard at something I think the overall tone and message of the book was that of being able to accomplish anything if you really Locuras lejos de casa! (Serie Lady Pecas 1) put in the necessary work The book goes in to a lot of his regrets throughout his life the main one being that he sacrificed his time with family to work He s honest when he says that he didn t have a good relationship with his kids growing up because he hardly saw them and he asks the uestion Was it worth it He could justify it later in life considering all the good that his businesses have been able to accomplish and the fact that when his kids became adults he eventually built up relationships with them But I think you still have to ask yourself what am I sacrificing and is this sacrifice worth it The layout of the book is nice in that each chapter following Larry s words ends with his wife serspective or the erspective of a business associate discussing their views or feelings about what Larry had just written Gail s erspective is always the best because it really shows how certain things that Larry would do were affecting his family and their marriage and Gail is very honest in her feelings througout the book The last chapter with her thoughts contains great advice for every married couple about supporting your spouse She makes the comment at one time that they were lucky that neither of them wanted to get a divorce at the same. When he was sixteen years old Larry Miller came home one summer night to find all his Grammar by Diagram possessions sitting in three bags on theorch of his darkened house The door was locked From those troubled and humble beginnings rose a man whose influence has touched according to reliable Murder Maker pollsters than 99ercent of the نشانیها population of Utah as well as myriads ofeople worldwide Seven months before Miller assed away he.
Time as the other All in all a great book about a great man that really helped to shape the state of Utah that we currently live in The title of this autobiography is certainly fitting After having an epiphany he decided that the only way to rovide a good life for him and his family was to work harder than everyone else And that he did He was a classic workaholic He worked so much and so hard that it drove him to his death bed while alienating his family If anything Larry is somewhat honest in this book He realizes he could have been a better husband and father He dedicated only a few Good Witch, Bad Witch pages addressing that and his family The rest which isrobably interesting if you re trying to sell a book is about his businesses and successes It is sad to think that he memorized the VIN numbers for each of his dozen or so Shelby Mustangs but doesn t know much about his kids lives growing up since he was working extreme hours What bugged me the most however was that his excuse for not being a good father was because as he said he didn t know how to be a father Yet he didn t know how to run car dealerships or NBA franchises but he was able to figure that out Now I know I can t criticize him too much I am not a The Tokyo Zodiac Murders perfect father Beside what herovided to this book I don t know much else about his life My take away from reading this book was to work a little harder and to find balance in life There is danger in not working hard enough and in working too hard uite a few of the stories in the book his low high school GPA and retaking the U s entrance exam twice because they thought he cheated the first time were ones I had grown up hearing about my mom s cousin Larry Larry s mother and my maternal grandmother ShirleyHowever I think that the story of him being thrown out of the house at 16 surprised EVERYONE in my family my mom and her 7 siblings but both of my grandparents have Yours, Mine and Ours (Second Chances passed away ironically my grandfatherassed away exactly 5 years to the date that Larry decided to stop the dialysis I really think that had Grandpa Horne or my grandparents known of it they would have taken Larry in But by that Riverview, Gone But Not Forgotten point even my grandmother had limited her interactions with Rill Larry s mother because of her toxicersonality so they weren t having many family gatherings to even notice Larry wasn t there Finishing his autobiography and the constant mention of Gail and the Capitol Hill Gang were his steady foundation after his Boneshaker (BA 43-500, parents left the Church and subseuently kicked him out of the house I realize now that Larry was old enough and had a close enough relationship to Grandpa Horne he could have called him but then he would have been uprooted from the last remaining thread of constancy he had in his life Gail and the Capitol Hill gang Thatart of his childhood certainly did define who he was an adult he learned to value loyalty and that was a trait he carried with him throughout his entire life This is by far the FASTEST I have EVER read a nonfiction book It surprised me how much I got into the book I read the A Star Is Born preface the foreward and started reading the introduction on Wednesday night but didn t finish it Last night afterutting the kids to bed I started reading it and had to CSA Scenarios for the MRCGP, third edition pull myself away at 1130 PM to go grocery shopping at thank goodness for 24 hour grocery stores I got home just after midnight andut the groceries away and then thought I ll just read a few chapters while I eat a snack I finally stopped at 230am to get ready for bed but then continued to read for another hour in the bathroom Then I got up and finished this morning while the kids watched their PBS shows I m sure The Ornament (Ornament, part of the reason I dived into his life story is because of the family connection but it was then that I connected to who he was and felt validated as aerson I struggle with my anger I have analyzed for years why eople didn t treat me as well as I thought they should have in ast situations although I have learned how to release that and not do it any this last year so that I don t continue to suffer wondering why I always have a million different ideas or thoughts floating around in my head like balloons and when I complete them they are gone I LOVED that analogy I ve always been told I look a lot like my mom s youngest sister It was confirmed when Larry hosted his Rant parent s 50th Wedding Anniversary at their newly completed house on the hill it is VERY nice I was a teenager at the time so old enough to look even like my aunt whom had attended Jazz games with my grandparents when Larry and Gail invited them often enough that Larry knew her He saw me and started to strike up a conversation with me as if I was my aunt I told him who I really was his other cousin s daughter but that I knew I looked a lot like my aunt It was fun that he sought me out because he thought I was my aunt That was the last time I saw him since I never made it to the Horne reunion he hosted at the then Delta Center I was on an exchangerogram in Germany at the time and I was a full time missionary for the LDS church when my grandfather Super Minds Level 2 Students Book with DVD-ROM passed away Other then that the only three other times I remember meeting Larry was when the Delta Center was dedicated he invited ALL of his family so we came down from Idaho for the occasion and hadretty good seats that was the only time I ever shook hands with President Gordon B Hinckley and Thomas S Monson at his youngest son s wedding reception which was in the Delta Center and at my grandmother s funeral in 1994 I always bragged that Larry H Miller was my mom s cousin especially when the Jazz were in the finals and other kids asked if I ever got to go to games Nope Then I felt bad that we didn t re.

Ally know Larry that well come to realize now that if he wasn t making time for his own children he certainly wasn t making time for extended family so it never was that we weren t good enough especially once I learned that he and Gail were SO not about utting on airs he just had this DRIVE in him to keep accomplishing as much as he could I really admire Larry Not for his accomplishments as much as for his humility Not many men of his wealth and community standing would ublicly say in their ublished autobiography that they wished they had spent time with their wife or children instead of working so many hours at the office But it is true on their death bed no one ever wishes they had spent time working at the office I m so torn on the rating one gives for an autobiography Would eople think my rating was about the author s life or the uality of the book That in mind I ll clarify my rating I am giving this book 5 stars not because the writing was excellent or that Miller should be given sainthood but because I think that keeping a record of one s life is very important I think Miller deserves 5 stars for sharing his life and the lessons he learnedI really struggle reading non fiction It takes me back to all the textbooks I had to read in college It s not that non fiction can t be interesting or entertaining but generally it doesn t appeal to me as much as most fiction doesHowever growing up in Utah I m definitely familiar with Larry H Miller and I decided to give his book a try so I could learn about himI m happy that I made it through and in less than a month this is huge for me even though I had several fiction books calling my nameMiller s life really was interesting He grew up The Color of a Leader poor with a mother who didn t seem to understand him she even called theolice on him a few times and he didn t know why He didn t go to college but he was driven from very early on to do the best he could with whatever he did He married his high school sweetheart She Into the Planet practically raised their five kids on her own while Miller was working hours and hours torovide for the family and become the best at his Dusk (Rosales Saga, profession He regrets that he didn t spend time with his family His hard workaid off monetarily He was the owner of many car dealerships and other businesses He owned the Utah Jazz He was generous with his money and didn t want it to change him and his wife They lived fairly simply although he did splurge on a huge house for them in Salt Lake and on cars he especially liked Shelby CobrasHe gave some great advice in the book about being on the same George Washingtons Secret Six page as your spouse as far as money is concerned He didn t hide that fact that he didn t take care of himself as he should have which eventually lead to his early deathMiller s life was inspiring imperfections and all This was an interesting book about the man behind the empire He was a very intense individual to a fault and he admits it somewhat To me the real hero in his story was his wife who was essentially a single mother through most of their kids childhood because of his workaholic attitude 6 days a week early morning to late night for 20 years It turned out that his family suffered from it and it was one of Larry s big regrets in life which he talked about a bit The book itself read fairly well it was co written by Deseret News writer Doug Robinson I enjoyed thearts about the Jazz and it was cool to get some insight into some aspects of the team and layers like John Stockton and Karl Malone Stockton himself even wrote a few ages of introduction for the book The only uibble I had with the book was the boastful flavor of a bunch of it I could tell he was trying to be humble in describing all of his good deeds and generosity but it s a very hard thing to do when talking about owning many many car dealerships multi million dollar The Caretaker profiting deals and hisersonal collection of 15 Shelby Cobras worth anywhere from25 to 4 million dollars each But overall it was interesting to read I went back and forth with my feelings for this book At times I thought it was nothing than Larry Miller boasting about all his accomplishments and how much harder he worked than everyone else I was also annoyed with the fact that he claimed he was a frugal man and he was in many aspects of his life but when someone accumulates 15 Shelby Cobras with Clara After Dark - 01 price tags ranging from 250k to 4 million I don t call that frugal I was also appalled to learn of how much debt Mr Miller took on to buy the Utah Jazz buildortions of his enterprise and to finance many of his Quanta Reset (The Shadow Ravens, projects the racetrack in Tooele County had a budget that started at 7 million and ballooned to over 100 million byroject endUltimately I felt sorry for Larry Miller since his extreme work ethic led to him missing all of his children s childhood as well as leading to his early demise Gail Miller Larry s wife was a saint to Over the River Through the Wood put up with all that she did and to raise the family essentially on her own Also some of his mother s actions when he was younger were outrageous eg throwing him out of the house when he was a young teenage for no real reason having him arrested to spend the night in jail etcI was impressed with all of Mr Miller shilanthropy and continuous donations to many organizations throughout Utah He did have a heart of gold in many ways and helped many many eople in need He was a man that truly loved the state of UtahIn the end Larry Miller s story is a great case study for both the good how to succeed in business and bad what happens when you ignore your family and hysical health examples he lead in his lifeHere s a link to a review that I thought summed up the book and LHM himself nicely.
