Book Summary

The brothers in the Emanuel family are known for their success and for their chutzpah. The youngest is Ari Emanuel, a high-powered Hollywood agent and the inspiration for a blunt-talking character on the HBO show Entourage. Then there's middle brother and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a tough, foul-mouthed former White House chief of staff and congressman. Author Ezekiel, a doctor and professor, is the oldest, and in this memoir he traces the brothers' careers while offering insight into their upbringing.
