Pirates of the Boardroom Jul 27, 2004
In Irving Abraham's engrossing page-turner, a Philadelphia lawyer with a heart of gold and his salty crew of 18th century Americans administer well-deserved thrashings of the literal and figurative sort to ye scurvy present-day plundering Pirates of the Boardroom and other modern miscreants. You'll buy it for the Philly-centric insights into the way our forefathers lived (and sailed), and you'll keep reading it for the engaging story of honorable men and women playing hardball - by the rules. Skirting the shoals of cynicism, and occasionally succumbing to the siren song of stereotyping, Abraham reminds us that there was once a time when corporations and their employees were in it for the long haul, for better or for worse, and a paycheck wasn't merely a C-note left on the night table. Budding bean-counters and tycoons-in-training would be well-advised to read it.
Very Imaginative Jun 25, 2004
This is an extremely creative first book and I look forward to reading more by the author in the future to see how he develops as a writer. I found the novel personally helpful to me in my life as well as entertaining. I think it would be a good read for men and women starting out in business; it gives much of interest to think about as well as some good lessons in business ethics and development of one's own character.
He lives the adventure! May 30, 2004
The author, long a personal favorite of ours, has finally put pen to paper to tell his tales.
He has walked in the shoes of mariner, merchant and Philadelphian. And now Irving B. Abraham stamps BERMUDA CROSSING with that authenticity only true life experience can bring.
BERMUDA CROSSING is just the begining. We look forward to Irving B. Abraham's next book! (..and we like the cute kid on the cover!)
Great drama on the sea. May 25, 2004
Irving Abraham offers the reader a combination of interesting aspects of the lives at sea, in business - and in personal relationships. Written in an allegorical style, "Bermuda Crossing" brings you from the eighteenth century to the twentieth century in a very imaginative way. If you like sea stories - and even if you don't - you'll enjoy reading this one. Abraham broaches business ethics and romance with great sensitivity. Note: I co-wrote my memoir "Leap Into Darkness" with Michael Olesker.
Bermuda Crossing May 3, 2004
I may be just a little bit biased because my Irving B. Abraham is my Dad, but this is a surprisingly good book for a first effort at fiction. And trust me, I'm his worst critic! This book makes you think. It's got enough action to keep it interesting, and it's a unique story. I can't wait for the sequel!
