Overview

Traveling has inspired many and in a sailing vessel that is especially true. Observing all life throughout childhood and coming to the conclusion that ignorant adults cleverly disguised, as parents, teachers and persons of assumed authority educate the majority of children and don't really want them to grow up thinking for themselves but to regurgitate their "wisdom".
This collection of stories are based on observations from early childhood to the present day and true events, sometimes funny and other times sad but always with a message that points toward the development of individual responsibility and awareness of our own actions.
Observing humans in their environment the author noticed that only humans use the hide, feathers, bones or organs of animals to decorate, disguise, fortify or cover themselves and call that domination of intelligence over instinct. They say they search the skies for extra terrestrial forms of life to discover new life forms when it seems they looking for more of their own kind. Of interest is that they want to be anything or anybody else but himself or herself and in an often humorous and sometimes tragic ways it becomes apparent that you can only be you.

Editorial Reviews

Marsha Watkins
Andre Schwartz's universal message on accountability is a powerful wakeup call. I was unable to put it down. His own life lessons of hard knocks told without anger or rage, but with hilarious anecdotes, brutal honesty, and genuine gratitude left me wanting more. I look forward to the sequel.

Meet the Author

About the Author:

André thought to have been born in Hungary but his parents informed him at the young age of four that he has been dropped accidentally onto this planet by a stork from another galaxy.
According to others accounts he had a ZEN-like attitude about him since birth but only discovered through the practice of Martial Arts the practice of ZEN at the age of 30.
His distinct humorous view about humanity and observational skills and the authentic way to express them earned him the reputation of a straight shooter and interesting character many find inspiring.

    An eye opener with great sense of humor and deep insight into human behavior.

    André has a great way to point at things that most of us would not even think about. His sense of humor and straight forward approach to life stem from personal experience and his observations are keen.
    I had a laughing fit on his account of "Memory lapses" and I had tears in my eyes about his story of "Mirror Image"
    A book I highly recommend.
