If you can laugh at your ups & downs you will appreciate this book. It is a wannabee comedian's tumultuous ride through life. An uplifting story of how life's struggles sometimes make you stronger and funnier. It's the author's hilarious memoirs redux - first written in 2007 and now expanded years later. It describes his young days in Long Island City and his exciting career at People magazine, The New York Times and MMR, Inc. The author also relates his antics in school, his crazy friends, Army days, surviving cancer, dealing with retirement, and his experiences with several media darlings of publishing and television. If you know NYC, you will love the author's uproarious memories of life in "the concrete jungle".

I'm glad to see that despite at times a challenging life, you've managed to keep that big smile and sense of humor. I remember that sense of humor at PS4 after one of our fellow students delivered a oral report and the teacher, I want to believe it was Mrs. Nagin, asked for comments. Evidently you did not like the story or disagreed so you raised your hand, stood and proclaimed sarcastically: "Great story, but what does that have to do with the price of eggs in Afghanistan?

Thanks so much for such a good read and for allowing us to share in your life and relive wonderful memories. I enjoyed every second of it...I love how you write. It's such an easy comfortable style and a pleasure to read. Again, thanks for the memories.

Scott's ( Patton) quote after he strategically defeated Rommel in a significant WWII battle. Well I finally finished your book on my current ( the third) trip to Tallinn, Estonia and it was excellent.
