Ah, the mysteries of life.

A confidence man scams billions.

Politicians fear talking about issues.

Marriage is sweet, divorce is sour.

That's what this book is about.

It's about why we humans think the way we do.

About the Author

In Roger's words, "More than most people, I've 'been there and done that.' And while I was doing it, I was taking notes."

Roger is a careful observer of the human condition, technology, and history, and this is what he writes about. He was a soldier in Vietnam in the sixties, an engineering student at MIT in the seventies, a personal-computer pioneer in the eighties, and a writer, traveler, and teacher in the nineties. He has visited twenty countries and worked in five. He has worked in five industries with both superstar and falling star companies. He's seen a lot.
