The Best Little Boy in the World Grows Up
by John Reid, Andrew P. Tobias From Booklist , August 19, 1998

In 1973, when he was 26 years old, financial guru Tobias pseudonymously published a memoir, The Best Little Boy in the World, which has never been out of print. He is gay, and in that book he talked about his sexuality--hence his disguise with the pen name. Times have changed, and Tobias can now discuss his gay lifestyle more openly and under his own name. In this sequel, he brings his story up to the present, and the overarching theme is that the world is a more tolerant place. The steps he has taken in his business career are discussed side by side with the ups and downs of his personal relationships. His eloquence is matched by a good sense of humor; his propensity for dropping names, though, has the effect of irritating little bug bites along the way. But he has lots of affirming things to say about being gay, which is his book's most lasting benefit. Brad Hooper Copyright© 1998, American Library Association
