You may be wondering: "How did he do what?"

Here are three examples:

• Surviving a turbulent boyhood, even if I was the one causing the turbulence.

• Turning a journalism degree and a $500 investment into a thriving, family-owned, multi-generation, oil and gas producing company.

• Enjoying a lifetime of playing basketball, competing against players ranging from Globetrotter Marques Haynes in the early 1960s to current NBA stars Kevin Durant and Trae Young. A lot can happen in 78 years, even if 74 of them have been spent in Oklahoma.

About the Author

Bill Dutcher is a fun-loving, risk-taking entrepreneur, seeking to balance his family life as a husband, father, and grandfather with his love of basketball, business, and writing. In this book, written as a septuagenarian sesquipedalian, he looks back on his exploits to date, a lifedescribed as a balancing act on a roller coaster.The unconventional path he has taken since boyhood led to countless adventures along the way, including stints as a class clown in grade school, borderline juvenile delinquent in junior high, decent halfback and point guard in high school, basketball walk-on and journalism major in college, four years in the Navy, with assignments in the Philippines and the Pentagon during the Vietnam war era, a brief career as a newspaper reporter, an introduction to the oil and gas business as a public relations consultant and lobbyist, and, eventually, as the founder of a natural gas consulting company, an oil and gas producing company, a real estate company, and a self-publishing venture.During this unconventional life, he has developed what he believes is a fountain of unconventional wisdom. But you, gentle reader, can be the judge of that.
