Fraternity : [a journey in search of five presidents] by Bob Greene( Recording )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over fifteen years ago, bestselling author and journalist Bob Greene decided to take vacation trips in search of history, an uncharted excursion to meet as many presidents of our country as possible. Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan (who the day before Greene was to meet him announced he has Alzheimer's, and so wasn't able to be interviewed) and George H.W. Bush invited Bob to various destinations across the country, sitting down to talk to him one-on-one. On the record, without press secretaries or handlers, these interviews are candid and surprising - each former president answering such questions as "what's it like to be the most powerful person in the world?"; "what is retirement like for someone who was once the most powerful man in the world?"; "what is it like to be known by all but known by no one?" Part memoir, part history, part oral biography, this is a slice of pure Americana"--Container

And you know you should be glad : [a true story of lifelong friendship] by Bob Greene( )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A highly personal and moving true story of friendship and remembrance from the New York Times bestselling author of Duty and Be True to Your School. Growing up in Bexley, Ohio, Bob Greene and his four best friends -- Allen, Chuck, Dan, and Jack -- were inseparable. Of the four, Jack was Bob's very best friend, a bond forged from the moment they met on the first day of kindergarten. They grew up together, got in trouble together, learned about life together -- and were ultimately separated by time and distance, as all adults are. But through the years Bob and Jack stayed close, holding on to the friendship that had formed years before. Then, the fateful call came: Jack was dying. And in this hour of need, as the closest of all friends will do, Bob, Allen, Chuck, and Dan put aside the demands of their own lives, came together, and saw Jack through to the end of his journey. Tremendously moving, funny, heart-stirring, and honest, And You Know You Should Be Glad is an uplifting exploration of the power of friendship to uphold us, sustain us, and ultimately set us free
