Meet the Author

I'm 71 years old. I met my future wife when she was thirteen years old and I was fourteen. We married eight years later and have been together ever since. We live in Bensalem, Pennsylvania. Our life together has been an exciting journey with all the ups and downs most couples experience. We have four children and eight grandchildren so we are never without fun and drama. They never end and they have been the catalyst for many of these stories.

    The Wisdom of an Unusual-but-Regular Guy

    Years ago, Peter frequently referred to the "Marriage Book" -- a semi-secret repository of the answers to life's relationship questions, and a compendium of more questions that defied an answer, even by him. I gave up hope of ever seeing it, until Peter actually delivered this enjoyable...memoir?

    "Shehecheyanu" has the ring of truth throughout. I can attest to the veracity of at least some of the stories -- I was there to see some of it. I have also heard substantially similar accounts given by others.

    This is a chronicle of the human condition, and whether you identify with Peter or YKW (his life's muse), or even the antagonists to his protagonist, this is a book full of lessons learned and shared, some to emulate and others to run from as fast as possible.

    An excellent read - with excellent graphics - Most enjoyable

    You will either laugh, commiserate, or just enjoy these stories. They are from the heart - and it is easy to relate. In many case you've "been there, done that" - Worth the time and effort to buy and read.

    A true mind trip through Waitze's lifetime

    Here ia a stream-of-consciousness memoir, compiled over years of writing, that reflects the writer's sharp wit and sense of high humor, while simultaneously reflecting his love of life and all that goes with it -- even the problems. Waitze is what everyman wanted to be: able to smile through life's tribulations because he sees them as the essence of the human condition. His words reflect the twinkle in his eyes as he writes. In his own words, he may be the new breed of philosopher.
