"I HATE WIRE !" So said Charlie Schroeder, and the result was a zoo revolution. Stroll through any modern zoo and marvel at the wonder of seeing a tiger, a rhino or perhaps a gorilla with seemingly nothing but air between you and the wild animal, and you'll be feeling the incredible, personal impact of Dr. Charles Schroeder's vision. Veterinarian, scientist, visionary, leader, political genius, taskmaster, mentor, con man, rascal, P.T. Barnum in a suit and tie - Charlie Schroeder was all these things as the World-Famous San Diego Zoo's legendary director. With his 1,000-watt smile and his talent for making good ideas come to life, he touched millions in his lifetime while becoming beloved as "Mister Zoo" to the zoological world. Charlie Schroeder led an amazing life, a true All-American saga. Mister Zoo is a funny, inspiring, surprising biography of a man who made a difference.
