Throughout history, Italians and Italian-Americans have made many outstanding contributions. Mr. Radomile, in his book Heritage Italian-American Style, shares 1,492 of these with us. The book is structured so that all of the factoids are presented in a question-answer format, which allows the reader to use the book in a variety of ways and occasions. Many of the factoids included are fascinating. For example, "What is the name of the period known as "the golden age of Roman literature," which covered the reign of Augustus Caesar?" Or, "What Italian-American football coach's career was portrayed in the television movie, Run to Daylight?" Although the publication is a first attempt at a printing, there are so many fascinating pieces of information here that you will find yourself drawn to this book time and again. This book is a fundamental building block for anyone wanting to know more about Italian life and is not to be judged by it's cover.
