From the back cover- "Sharon did not fit the image of the western capitalist. He wore a big-brimmed slouch hat and quoted the classics. He dressed in Black broadcloth, giving him a clerical or ministerial appearance. Unlike brawny Bonanza millionaires, Sharon weighed perhaps 135 pounds and seemed reserved to the point of aloofness."
