Leonard N. Simons (1904-1995) was one of Detroit's most prominent benefactors. Here, republished on the occasion of his eighty-fifth birthday, is presented a selection of his talks and addresses that illustrate a rare combination of wit, sensitivity, and boundless energy that made him a leader in the Detroit community.

This collection need not be read in sequence. Let the reader dip into the book here and there to catch revealing glimpses of the people and personalities, of the spirit and beliefs that have animated a community. The author was by profession an advertising agency executive. By inclination he was a lover of books, chronicler of his city's past and present. Here he displays his strong social and religious commitments with brevity and laughter.
