About the Book

"It's Made to Sell-Not to Drink!" is the almost too good to be true tale of Bill Wellman's life.  From opening pages, the stories of mischief, adventure and fortune spill forth.  There is young Wellman helping run a betting parlor in his parent's bedroom, or winning a stereo for escorting an elephant to an appliance store.  Other stories tell about the leaky "In-Tents" Theater, the Indian medicine man and his father riding a horse through the bar.  Wellman has done it all.  He worked with famous - Bob Hope, "Goober", Kenny Rogers, and Liberace and helped introduce Orville's popcorn to the world.  He helped develop theaters, restaurants and hotels.  It's a tale telling page turner that will leave you laughing, crying and thoroughly entertained.
