'60 Questions, Insights and Reminiscences' is a sometimes humorous look at life, with its dilemmas; tempered by years of observation, and the wisdom of hindsight.
One of life's great ironies is that sometimes, something positive, and quite unexpected, grows out of adversity. This book is a consequence of my writing a piece entitled 'What's Good About Losing?', which in turn came about because I entered a competition, and, like so many others, demonstrated my fallibility. My husband Ronald Sharp B.E.M., the creator of the Grand Organ in the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House, read and liked my article so much that he steered me into writing this book: delving, often laterally, into society's attitudes and strategies.
At length, my childhood sprang to mind, and I included topics on the theme of 'Can You Remember?' Doubtless, many, if not most, baby boomers will relate to my ideas about this era.
In common with my four previously published volumes of Short Stories, this book has been edited by my husband, He has incorporated his system of word spacing which he believes aids in comprehension, clarity and ease of reading.
'60 Questions, Insights and Reminiscences' aims to provide interesting, stimulating, and easily comprehensible reading that engages people from many age-groups and walks of life. Why not compare your own ideas with those expressed in this book?
