There are a great many books discussing the poetry of others but few of those books are written by the poet himself. The goal of Reflections is to share Christopher Obert's poems with the world and discuss his thought process as he worked on writing the poetry. This self critiquing will give the reader (or student) a distinctive view into the writing of poetry. The variety of poems in the book range from his early work to his current writing, permitting the reader to see how his writing style has changed over the years. The poems subject matter is wide and varied. Because Chris describes the different forms of poetry and special meanings behind the poems, he allows the book to be both stimulating and a unique teaching tool for the reader. He discusses what motivates him and gives a few challenges for the reader to try their hand at poetry. Overall, it would be a fine addition to any private collection, library or school curriculum.

About the Author
Chris is a considerate and easygoing person but is also a competent, conscientious and detail-oriented professional. He is self-directed and motivated with the capability to consistently achieve objectives. He is highly analytical and can recognize problems and concerns while evaluating alternatives. He can then implement solutions, drawing off his experiences. His experience is supplemented by a diverse formal and informal training and studies. However he is aware of the fact that no one can do it all and he is the first to obtain additional support when needed. This makes Chris an effective leader with a proven talent for developing teams that can deliver creative and useful products.
