I've been blessed to be able to accomplish a lot of really neat things in my life. I was a soldier on an M1 tank crew in Cold War Europe, I've recorded a record as the lead singer of a metal band, I've built and sold companies, and of course, written a book. And a lot of other silly things. Though all of that would probably make for a better movie than a book.

John O'Bryan is a damned comedic genius! Not only is this book chock full of great information, but the delivery is to die for. Highly recommended. Would make a great gift for the guy who has everything already!

Joes by Scott Burkett
“The things you see in Army barracks sometimes defies logic. After a while, you give up trying to rationalize and understand such things ... you just accept them as your new reality.”

“What emerged from the doorway can only be described as how I envision a love-child between Grady from Sanford & Son and a small goat. There before us was The Voodoo Queen.”
