Everybody in America was supposed to grab whatever he could and hold onto it. Some Americans were very good at grabbing and holding, were fabulously well-to-do.  Others couldn’t get their hands on doodley-squat.

Not all commenters agree with my estimation of Breakfast of Champions as a great book. OK, not a great book. Let’s call it an interesting book. I still like it after all these years.
