A Life-Changing Book
The Rosenthal family was proud of their old traditions. Their great-great-grandfather had come to America on a ship, and they gave senators, successful businesses and financial breakthroughs to the country. They decided to compile a family history, wanted to give a true legacy for their children and grandchildren. They hired a popular author to write a life-changing book about the family.
However, one puzzle did not fit in. Their great-uncle Jeremy, who was executed in the electric chair. The author said he could write the story tactfully. The book was published, and was not a lie in that: "Great-uncle Jeremy occupied a chair of applied electronics at a significant government institution. He was attached to his position by the strongest of ties, and his death came suddenly, as a great shock.'
