    Greatly enjoyed this. Very in-depth, methodical, illuminating of Louisville's first family. Struck me as solidly researched but also read as a page-turner. The story of the family is riveting and heartbreaking, and the book is poignant, thoughtful, and meticulous. Would strongly recommend -- particularly to those interested in Louisville or Kentucky history.

    "The Patriarch" is a fascinating blend of biography and soap opera that offers something for all readers, especially lovers of newspapers. The authors trace the rise and fall of the Bingham family, which rose to prominence with its ownership of the Louisvile, Kentucky, newspapers, in riveting detail. A must-read for American history buffs, family sagas and media historians.

    Knew nothing of the Louisville, KY papers so this was of interest. Especially liked the VERY detailed descriptions of family/generational dynamics. How could these authors possibly have so much information and insight into this family?
