Riassunto: Many opportunities surface only once. When meeting challenges, too often you'll only fire off one round. Make it your best shot. In 3 to Get Ready, Frank Herbert Spittle reviews life's aspects through "the way I see it" examining mistakes, and remedies for surviving rough patches. He offers a collection of essays, examinations, revelations, memoirs, and lamentations, all spiced with the humor found throughout his writings. The big puzzler: how to prepare the way for enjoying ones hundredth birthday. It's a large order, but everyone alive holds the gift of thirty additional years more than generational predecessors. We're all living longer.
L'autore: After thirty-two years dodging spitballs in the front of classrooms that frequently held aspiring delinquents, Frank Herbert Spittle switched teams. He sat down and recorded mischief-packed escapades in two books of zany yarns describing his youthful hijinks in Can You See Me Now? and Sailor, Write Your Mother. Two later books featured Frank's now popular protagonist Montgomery St. John. In writing The Trailer Two Spaces Down and Near Occasions of Sin, the author harvested a boundless curiosity and the experiences from a rich life. The two fast-moving mainstream novels launched Frank into what he describes as "the satisfying lifestyle of a writer-without deadlines" While a teenage Eagle Scout, the author of 3 to Get Ready quit high school to enlist in the US Navy as a seaman recruit. He served on active duty for five years, earned a GED aboard the destroyer USS Ozbourn, saw action in Korea, and advanced in rank to chief warrant officer while later serving in the reserve. After receiving his master's degree, he went on to play leadership roles in the US military, corporate public relations, and California education. In fifty-three years of marriage, his wife Darlene and he reared two daughters to individual successes. Frank has explored thirty-two countries. He's received local recognition as Toastmaster of the Year. All of this capped off by a career arguing ratios, proportions, and the Pythagorean Theorem with thousands of rambunctious teens. He makes his home in Laguna Hills, California, where he writes daily, enjoys frequent travel, and often yearns to scratch that itch for adventure.
