From his youth in the cattle-covered Sandhills of Nebraska to a small French farming village, Dennis Glaser is enjoying an ever-changing, experience-filled life. And he here recounts some of those experiences to entertain and inform his readers. Writing with a rare combination of wit and wisdom, Glaser discusses life, love, laughter, nature, pets, work, and travel as essential elements of the well-lived existence. The universe covered within these pages is drawn from the lessons he has learned from growing to manhood to present day-not retired, he says, but "re-wired." Glaser's vignettes utilize a reporter's insightful observation of events and the profiles of the people involved. The locales include small towns, big cities, and the rural countryside where he learned nature's lessons first hand. Always he writes with an unerring ability to find the essential heart of each experience. Glaser exemplifies advice he received early-on: Find a job you love and you'll never work another day in your life!

I knew Glaser when he was an advertising copywriter and had no idea that he had so many interesting stories to tell, nor that he could write them so well. I would have enjoyed it as much if I'd never met him!
An easy-to-read book, full of stories from the author's life experiences with little hints as to how he solved the problems he encountered. Plus, Readers Digest-style 'fillers' with quotes, comments, humor, and more.
