Overview

It's no surprise if you've never heard of the author of SO FAR, SO GOOD. He never starred in movies, dealt in drugs, or ran for President.

Well, what did he do? He went to prep school and Princeton. Enlisted in the Army and was sent to Italy, where he reported for an Army newspaper and married. Earned his Ph.D. Taught for a third of a century at the University of Pennsylvania. Wrote six books, including this one and a history of the world.

As you see then, these are the memoirs of a history professor. But you'll find this brief self-story engaging and illuminating.

Davis illustrates how children figure who they are, how adolescents search for Truth, how Americans viewed the Cold War, and how historians explore where Man has been. And he asks if life on Earth is headed down or up.

Meet the Author

James C. Davis studied at The Hill School and then at Princeton, where he did poorly in a course he later taught. He enlisted in the Army and was sent to Italy, where he reported for a wretched newspaper and married.

He earned his Ph.D. degree at Johns Hopkins and then taught for a third of a century at the University of Pennsylvania. Along the way he wrote six books, including a history of the world (THE HUMAN STORY) and these memoirs.

Now retired, he belongs to two ROMEOs (Retired Old Men Eating Out) and on doctor's orders he drinks a double martini before dinner.
