    To be clear from the outset: I bought Victor's book. He offered to send me a signed one at the price of an unsigned ne, but I opted to buy a signed one so I would feel comfortable saying what i thought of it (or just keeping a discreet silence.)


    I really enjoyed this book. Well worth what I paid for it. I bought another copy for a friend in Ottawa.


    I'm writing a review for Amazon.com. When I finish it I will post it here too

    That is normal for authors to charge a small premium on their signed copies off their own site. Vic objected but I bypassed his objection by processing the order online so nyah Vic. LOL.

    My review has been submitted.

    Musings of a Dysfunctional Life

    Funny, heartbreaking, and heart-warming, this is an Everyman’s adult coming of age journey from adolescence to middle age.

    Musings of a Dysfunctional Life unfolds with the precise timing of an amusement park ride through an average guy’s dysfunctional life. Rook deftly blends laugh out loud humor with compelling tension in his adult struggle with changing fortune, freedom and success. Reading excerpts from the author’s website does not prepare you for the emotional impact of the succession of stories. This fast read leaves indelible impressions: hilarious evil looking babies, the beauty of a Monarch butterfly and the loss of innocence. This book will resonate with parents and adults who were children of divorce or alcoholics.

    To be honest, I make more money when you buy the Kindle version of the book, plus it's $5 cheaper for the customer. I only make $3 when you buy a paperback from Amazon.

    Save yourself money, get me more money, and buy it as a Kindle or Nook book.

    Nice review came in today.

    "Highly recommended reading! This is personal musings at its best that tells it all. This book will take you from a small town in New York to Virginia, North Carolina and back to New York and then to D.C… One minute you are riding amusement rides and another chapter here comes the spider scares. How about being broke down in a snow storm and walking to a neighbors house that doesn’t want you to stay there, and sends you on the way with another pair of boots to continue your travel. Throw in an abusive alcoholic father, and later a sensual awakening and you don’t want to put the book down. This is just the tip of the ice, as I don’t want to give it all away. To top it off, these musings are real and told from the heart. Excellent!!!"

    For me to autograph a book, I have to order it directly and pay for shipping to get it to me, then shipping to send it out. If you buy as a paperback direct from Amazon, they ship to you directly and there is only one shipping charge.

    Oh yeah, I also have to sign the book, carefully package it, drive to the Post Office, and stand in line.

    I hope that explains the added cost, DF. icon_wink.gif
