Candor and humor mark this light and readable autobiography by Jerusalem's colorful Mayor. The most arresting passages deal with his period of close association with Ben-Gurion, whom he greatly admired, and include frank and often sharp appraisals of the issues and personalities of the day. He also tells the familiar story of his love affair with Jerusalem.
