DAVID BRUCE SMITH PUBLICATIONS announces eBook of popular memoir "Conversations with Papa Charlie"

“Conversations with Papa Charlie” the charming memoir of the real estate developer and philanthropist Charles E. Smith is now available as an ebook from Google Books. The ebook can be read on a web browser, smartphone and many eReaders.
 
Feb. 15, 2011 - PRLog -- The memoir, written by David Bruce Smith, first published in the fall of 2000 by Capital Books, is no longer in print. The story tells the history of Smith’s remarkable grandfather — a Russian Jew who immigrated to America in 1911 and built the Charles E. Smith real estate empire. Readers will feel they are sitting at the knee of this kindly Jewish grandfather, listening to stories about his amazing life and to gentle advice for succeeding in your own.

"I was a lucky grandson," writes David Bruce Smith. "Papa Charlie was kind and gentle, and his laughter could instantly dispel sadness. His eyes always sparkled with youth because he was ever-youthful and adventurous. But the most important thing he did for me was to constantly encourage me, even if I didn't always understand why."

The ebook contains a wonderful series of vignettes that pass along his grandfather's singular humor, wisdom, and enthusiasm. Readers learn about the importance of family devotion and the care of each of its members, responsibility for and generosity to community and to those who have less, good nutrition and a regular health regimen, devotion to religion, and some very savvy business tips - all spiced with memorable Yiddish expressions. If you never knew your own grandfather, or are missing him, this book will instruct, inspire, and soothe your ruffled feathers.
