PROVO - Bronco Mendenhall spends a lot of time with the BYU playbook, but also finds the time to get into other kinds of books as well. This week's book is called Cradles of Eminence.
Describing the book, Bronco says: "This book chronicles the childhoods of seven hundred of maybe the most famous people and maybe the most influential people that have lived on the planet."
The book details the studies of historical experts looking to make any connections between these influential individuals. The experts found that a majority, if not all, had a love of reading at a young age. The love of reading for these individuals was instilled by a parent or influential other.
Bronco believes that this book is a good read for anyone raising children, those looking for success in their lives, and for those looking to reach their full potential. "It's a pretty compelling story," Bronco said.
