New book “The Autobiography of an Unknown Man” by John Y. Taggart is released, a personal account of the author’s career in law, humble beginnings, and experiences gained over a life well lived

“The Autobiography of an Unknown Man” by John Y. Taggart has been released worldwide. This 365-page autobiography is a slightly different take on the genre, as the author self-admits that his story is not one of celebrity or world-changing influence. Still, it is an account of a full life, lived well, packed with personal and professional experiences, ups and downs, and a reflective tone that both draws in the reader and prompts them to examine their own memories. 

From his early years in rural Ohio, through college and Naval service, on through a decades-long career in law (including over 30 years as counsel for William F. Buckley), Taggart shares intimate details of his past. He may call himself unknown, but his life has been anything but boring. 

Autobiography of an Unknown Man (ISBN: 9781735588070) can be purchased through retailers worldwide, including and Amazon. The paperback retails for $14.99. Wholesale orders are available through Ingram.
