Overview

Attorney Sam Weisman is having a bad day. His wife wants a divorce, and his law practice is threatened by a hostile takeover. What's a guy to do? 'Money, That's What I Want' - that's his dad on the phone, asking for free legal services for a friend. The neighbor's dog won't stop barking ... so Sam comes up with a crazy plan to calm his nerves with sedatives prescribed by Sid the Psych, who is now entrepreneuring with psychobabble T-shirts. Pulled one way by two hilarious con artists who plan to steal his dream, and another by his family and the real estate professional who's worked her way into his heart, Sam uncovers the wisdom in his father's madness and struggles to hold onto his sanity, his self-esteem, and the woman he loves. Grasping the end of his rope in one hand and the end of his rainbow in the other, he teeters between the abyss ... and the pot of gold!

About the Author

A retired attorney, Robert Gottlieb maintained a private practice in Los Angeles and San Diego for a total of 36 years. He began his general law practice focusing primarily on business clients, and in the 1980s began representing insurance company clients. His career as a lawyer provides the backdrop of experience against which he has painted with a broad stroke the disillusionment and exhaustion that haunt the majority of attorneys practicing today.
Born in Los Angeles, Robert lived most of his early life in the San Fernando Valley. He attended public school and graduated from law school in Los Angeles.
Realizing that Los Angeles was a magnet for the world of dreamers seeking recognition and success in the arts and entertainment field, Robert conjured a theory that God created earthquakes for the purpose of bringing talent and the crazies to Hollywood, shaking the world until the fallout from other countries ended up in the United States.
God then shook the world again, according to the theory, and whatever had originally fallen into the United States now fell into California. God shook the world with yet another earth quake, and what shook loose fell into Hollywood, bringing ideas ranging from the bizarre to the ingenious and elevating a few to enjoyment of huge success.
Early in his days as a practicing attorney, Robert began making and saving notes involving situations with clients, prospective clients, courtroom proceedings, and the humorous and often absurd stories related to him by other attorneys. It didn't take long to realize that the practice of law, like any other business, is about people much more than about the law itself.
In the mid- to late 1990s, Robert began to create narratives from his notes. No Nude Swimming is his first novel.
