I was born in a shack during the depression. Sometimes we had no food so I know what it is to be poor, but that is not failure or success. I moved to Chicago after four years in the Air Force. I had a wife and two children, 33 years with teletype corp. I moved from bench hand to engineer, raised five children in Chicago and retired at 55. Through studying psychology and my experiences in life, I learned the things I wrote about in this book. Success is not how much you have but how much your things have you. I own a Dairy Queen, and enjoy it. Have 5 children, 15 grandchildren and enjoy them when I can.
