"Getting Out of Saigon" is the author's account of his assignment as the last American manager of the Chase Manhattan Bank's Saigon branch, when, at the age of 27, he legally adopted all of the bank's Vietnamese employees, along with their families, during that city's anarchic final days in April, 1975, in a desperate attempt to rescue them. The book was released by Simon and Schuster on April 4, 2023.
