Hi, my pen name is Robert 'RADZSICK' Rogers. My writings are a little Radical and a little Sick. When I combined those two concepts together you get, RADZSICK. After you read the book you will understand why I used a pen name. The story is set in fictional Spitesvilles, Maryland. There are many interesting personality types and behavior patterns that health club members put on full and open display. I watched carefully and took notes in the process of those transactions. The first chapter sets the scene and is background information. The second chapter begins with my first day of employment, at a fictional gym located in suburban Baltimore, Maryland in October of 1996. The story tells of many wonderful and fictionalized members over two decades of employment. The backdrop of my life story adds additional elements of drama. There are lots of short, BRISS types of stories. That are quick and to the point! Men aged 18 and and over and Secular Jewish Males over the age of 40 are the primary initial target audience. Later in the book, there is spoofing of tv shows with male characters from the 1960's and 1970's. However, the book is written to entertain any MALE on the PLANET! Women will also want to read the book, because the men are laughing so hard. Most of the stories are uplifting and funny, some are mean and ugly .People bring a lot of physical and emotional baggage into health clubs. Fictionalized stories and invented characters will entertain any who enjoys smart, clever and witty stories. The book is a semi-autobiographical spoof of many of the colorful personalities that, I have encountered over my diverse career path. Midway through the book I add in colorful and fluidly dynamic stories that will entertain blue collar readers with stories of Wombacks (Garbagemen) and Brick Layers. I was a 'Mortar Mobilization Manager' during my college years. Which is the sociciological description for when, I was bricklayers laborer for three summers. I use very creative characters to highlight the differences; between urban(downtown) versus rural (country) living. They are spoofs and it is very obvious .Gay and all MALE readers will appreciate many of the puns pursuant to the reproductive process. Blue collar and many male dominated work and social clubs members, constantly speak of the subject matter on a minute to minute basis. I listened to there stories and have created scenarios to entertain those audiences. I use the Sociciological descriptive methodology to give very real world descriptions of every day things and scenarios. There are a lot of squishy subject matters, that are discussed and severely lampooned. Subject matters include used sanitary napkins, phlem form stories ,garbagemen/bricklayers hobbies ,unpleasant female odors,and other irreverent subjects. There are numerous Rock and Roll, particularly Metal band references throughout the book.The book begins with the author being harpooned by hook of Metal Music of Black Sabbath in the books opening chapter. Sports fans will greatly appreciate hearing why THE CENTER is the most important player on the field, I was also a catcher. There is a side bar chapter at the end of the book. It is entitled Random Rants and Raves that are Politically Incorrect. I am a long time fan of HBO, Realtime and Bill Maher, he is my Spiritual Advisor .However,it is not a political book. There is a backdrop of politics that is explained early in the book as part of my life story. There are lots of Sniglets and Double Entendres used throughout the book. There are also lots of discussions of smells and aromas, all of them bad.The sad fact is that some people need to use, soap and water much more often. There are stories of some very nasty people. To reward them for there decades of vile horrible behaviors, the final chapter has an awards show. Winners are awarded metals like the Olympics in the Metals of Bronze, Silver and Gold. Females win The Schlocklike Yappy Yenta Awards and men win The Schlocklife Hell of Shame Schwarmy Schlickity Schlock Lifetime Achievement Awards. It very Snarky and the winners are Kibbittzed with special poems written just for them. I am a people person and have a tremendous ability to synopsize into words what people are thinking. There is also a story of my career path rising and the inevitable story of my pending termination. Any one who would like to hear very funny and horrible descriptions of there bosses will love this book. I was not sad or angry when I was fired, it was long past the time for me to go. The book will make a great gift for any Soldier any where in the World. All Fraternity Members and Police Officers; I have a section on Badge Bunnies, that they will hopefully tell there Brothers in Arms about. This is my first book and it will be very different, even though it is only 57 Pages. Enjoy RADZSICK!
