About this title


Ninety-eight-year-old Herb Conroy has set himself on a quest. Pursuing a quest is not easy for even the fittest of 98 year olds. Herb believes he has made something of a discovery and he is undertaking a mission to New York City, to make his discovery available, and to sow the seeds of an idea he hopes will somehow take root and spread. Herb is testing a theory, conducting an experiment, setting an idea free, and at the same time, having the last laugh. If it comes together at all, it is going to take every moment of Herb's first 100 Years. Trade size paperback.

From the Inside Flap:

The title of this novel is enough to make you want to pick it up. The story inside is a joy ride.

In Herb’s First 100 Years & The Book of Truths, Randy Perkins has crafted a slick little tale that is filled with interesting characters, insights, and emotional twists and turns. By using the technique of inserting himself in the story, the author creates an air of believability that at first had me wonder, and then had me hope, that Herb Conroy was a real man.

Ninety-eight year old Herb Conroy is on his way to New York City. He has joined a group tour because he is too old to travel alone. Having outlived all of his family and friends, and feeling his life drawing to a close, he sets out to give something back to humanity. He wants to leave the world a better place and to accomplish that, he has created something he calls the Book of Truths.

On the fight from Denver, Herb casually tells his seatmates the story of his life. We learn about his loves, the happenings, the happiness and the tragedies he experienced along the way. We also learn that Herb is not merely on vacation. Herb is on a quest. Once in New York City, he discovers that completing his quest will not be as easy as he imagined.

This novel is rich with wit and wisdom. It stimulates with a storyline that constantly kept me off balance and anticipating the next turn. I was touched by Herb’s example and came away from the story searching for ways that I might also leave the world a better place.

With this book the author demonstrates a vibrant and creative talent for storytelling. This is Mr. Perkins first novel. It should not be his last.
