John Burroughs reviews Walter’s Way for Midwest Book Review in their October issues under Buroughs’ Book Shelf — saying “The lessons Scherr shares about business, leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship, philanthropy, and family are priceless.”
Synopsis: Part autobiography and part history lesson, “Walter’s Way” is Walter Scherr’s personal memoir. An autobiographical tale full of adventure and excitement as well as disappointment and heartache, “Walter’s Way” tells the story of how a Depression-era boy from Queens, New York overcame a life-threatening illness to live an adventurous life as a globe-trotting executive who witnessed and helped foster the post-World War II economic boom. The lessons Scherr shares about business, leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship, philanthropy, and family are priceless.
While imparting Scherr’s unique perspectives on business, success, risk, love, and life, “Walter’s Way” will also inspire the power of philanthropy and the value of caring for others, a spirit that shines through the pages of the book.
It should be noted that proceeds from the sale of the book (buy here) are being donated to The Center for Discovery.
Critique: A successful businessman and entrepreneur, Walter J. Scherr is the founder of Visual Sciences inc./Panafax, the first publicly traded facsimile company in the country. Exceptionally well written, inherently fascinating, and ultimately inspiring, “Walter’s Way” is an enthusiastically recommended read and would prove to be an enduringly popular addition to community and academic library American Biography collections.
