AMERICAN HIRO The Adventures of Benihanas Rocky Aoki and How He Built a Legacy

by | Read by David Lee Huynh, Steve Aoki [Fore.]

Biography & Memoir • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

The audio biography of the founder of the popular Japanese restaurant chain Benihana, Rocky Aoki, needs no narrative embellishment--his life is thrilling enough on its own. This makes David Lee Huynh's straightforward, accent-free narration a perfect match for detailing Aoki's rise to fame and fortune as one of America's most successful entrepreneurs. Aoki didn't stop with dominating the restaurant landscape, he also raced cars and boats, funded Broadway productions, founded a porn magazine and private celebrity club, was on the first team to cross the Pacific ocean in a hot-air balloon, and developed a submersible craft to explore the deepest depths of the ocean. The production details his equally broad personal life and the legacy of his children and businesses. J.T. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2023]
