A Tongue in the Sink
The Harrowing Adventures of a Baby Boomer Childhood
By Dennis Fried, Ph.D.
Are the current events of your childhood now showing on the history channel? Do you look at today's kids and suspect that they're aliens? Have you ever assaulted an electronic device? Do you forget whether some of your favorite movie starts are dead or alive? Are you saying "When I was a kid" more and more lately?
Then meet Dennis Fried, former philosophy professor and stand-up comic (just your normal, everyday career path), and the author of the popular Memoirs of a Papillon: The Canine Guide to Living with Humans without Going Mad. Return with him to the days when kids actually went outside to play! When SUVs were not only unknown but unneeded, since no self-respecting kid wanted to be seen being dropped off by his parents. When gym teachers issued directly from the "walk it off" school of pain management. Back to the days of Saturday afternoon double features, A-bomb drills, and the always-dangerous Big Kids.
This wry, incisive memoir about growing up in a small town in the 1950s will fill you with laughter, nostalgia, and reflections on the changing nature of childhood. If you were ever a kid, this is your story.

A Visit to Sedona's Idiosyncratic Neighbor
By William F. Jordan
Through a series of illustrated vignettes, Doodlebug Island chronicles the lives of the slightly off-centered folks who live on the island's scenic shores. Separated from the rest of Arizona by the waters of Oak Creek, Doodlebug Island provides a haven for the inhabitants and their eccentricities, which mix, clash and create a multitude of comical-and usually chaotic-situations. Written with a slightly acerbic but definitely humorous edge, Doodlebug Island challenges the status quo on a variety of issues and engages readers in the triumphs, trials and frustrations of its characters' daily lives.

Management By Vice: A Humorous Satire on R&D Life in a Fictitious Company
By C. B. Don, Ph.D., Illustrated by M. E. Cohen
The book is made up of a series of eleven anecdotes that portray the comical, devious,
and self-serving ways in which a motley crew of inept, mismanaging managers skillfully
bungle promising research projects. Readers are privy to the behind-the-bench scientists'
desperate struggles to salvage inventions on which the competitive edge of the
technology-driven company depends.
Excellent, Entertaining & Informative, Original & Incisive:
We really enjoyed this. We're not tin big business, but work for the health care service
in the UK. The book has a "reality feel", which I presume is a reflection of the author's
own experience. Very funny, but gave us a real insight into how big businesses go on.

By Robert Petta
Work and office related humor strikes the funny bones in millions of people across the globe in numerous ways and forms. One of these forms is poetry and there is no other collection that is as hilarious as those in Office Poetry, by author, creator and performer, Robert Petta. Office Poetry is based on the first-hand experiences of this ten year veteran in the workforce for Fortune 500 Companies and his observations of the people, objects, and situations that all pertain to the workplace. These observations are presented in rapid, rollicking, rhymes and each poem weaves a story and twists and turns multiple meanings from seemingly ordinary objects, characters, and situations that are often seen and experienced in any office. The hand drawn illustrations by Mark Sean Wilson that accompany many of the poems in the book are maniacal depictions of various scenes in creative details and embellishments. Office related humor has never been so fun! Office Poetry sparks abundant topics for conversation because the titles and themes are so common in office workplaces everywhere. But whether common or quirky, the themes in Office Poetry are all presented in creative poems that tell stories or employ adages and age old wisdom and apply it to the corporate world. In this time-sensitive fast-paced world, people need humor and they need it fast. As fast as they can read ten words, look at a funny picture, or listen to a sound bite. Office Poetry was written and recorded on audio with that in mind. Give the reader or listener quick funny quotes, rhymes, and situations that keep him or her turning pages, listening attentively, and laughing continuously. And with the talented hand and mind of Mark Wilson working together with Petta, the illustrations are an added creative dimension to the overall work in print and live. Office Poetry is sure to entertain and give all who experience it a much needed, work-related laugh!
