9780762782987: Lessons from a Desperado Poet

Part memoir, part how-to, all Baxter Black, Lessons from a Desperado Poet is a humorous, witty take on making a living by doing the right thing and trying everything. According to Baxter Black, success “does not require a genius; it just requires the persistence of a glacier. Remember, often it’s not ability that gets you ahead, it’s reliability. The world is run by those who show up.”

 

Lessons from a Desperado Poet leaves a trail of self-improvement and motivational tortilla crumbs that readers will follow with delight—before, that is, squirreling them away in their own cerebral pockets for later use.

From the Inside Flap:

Part memoir, part how-to, all Baxter Black, "Lessons from a Desperado Poet" is a humorous, witty take on making a living by doing the right thing and trying everything. According to Black--who provides 118 life lessons through the course of the book--success, at least in the form to be had by working outside the system, "does not take a genius; it just requires the persistence of a glacier. . . . Remember, often it is not ability, it's reliability. The world is run by those who show up."
A mind-tickling romp through the formation, fermentation, and fruition of the author's career as a poet in a country where publishing poetry is "practically illegal," "Lessons from a Desperado Poet" is instructional for the entrepreneur, inspirational for the ambitious, and entertaining for the teeming masses. In three sections--"How I Learned,""What I Learned," and "Why I Was Able to Learn"--the man the New York Times called "probably the nation's most successful living poet" takes us through everything from his "Basque Infusion" (i.e., the lessons he learned working for a hard-headed Basque) and how he became a self-sustaining poet, to such chapters as "Me and NPR," "How to Control Your Tech Addiction," and "Controlling Your Own Life--Big Decisions Like Turning Down Johnny Carson."
Since it is also a story of continuously overcoming the odds, " Lessons from a Desperado Poet" leaves a trail of self-improvement and motivational tortilla crumbs that readers will follow with delight--before, that is, squirreling them away in their own cerebral pockets for later use.

About the Author:

Cowboy poet and large-animal veterinarian, Baxter Black, says "I was raised with the coyotes.  No, this is serious.  I was raised in New Mexico, did three years at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, then four more years at Colorado State University to earn a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree.  Veterinary school was hard for me.  (The price of a gallon of gas was higher than my GPA!)

"Throughout the summers of my college years I worked at different livestock operations as 'cowboy labor.' To help support myself, among other things, I had a band and rode bulls.   Upon graduation I practiced for thirteen years in the livestock business and would still be there if cowboy poetry had not hijacked my life.

"Since poetry is virtually illegal in the United States, I have had to work around the edges of the mainstream to make a living - outside the box, as it were.  For thirty years I have been successful performing cowboy poetry (think of Shakespeare rather than Robert Frost) at venues across the country and in Canada.  The greatest blessing in my business is that I have never had to solicit appearances.  It has all been word of mouth.

"To augment my performances, over the years I have expanded into best-selling books, CD and DVD publishing, a regular column, a commercial radio program, National Public Radio appearances, cable television, and producing commercials.

"Our entertainment business, my wife’s and mine, began in Colorado.  Twelve years ago we moved to Arizona to take care of my folks.  I still have a heavy travel schedule and we have five employees in our office.  We have a married daughter and a teenage son. 

"We live on a small ranch close to the Mexican border and I punch cows when I’m not on the road.  It ain’t a bad life."
