About this title

Synopsis:

Get into the head of a misguided teenager as he plows through the 1950's. Due to influences, or lack of, and joined by his peers, they attempt to gain recognition by practical joking, clowning, bullying, and deceiving. In an age of innocence most of the activities were meant for fun and to beat the establishment, often at the expense of others.

The book begins on the early fifties with the high school years. One chapter visits the late forties with some important background information that attempts to justify certain behavioral traits. The book continues by covering the college days at two universities. Some of the happenings were unlawful and unnecessary. Luckily the statute of limitations has long expired. If they had to do it, undoubtedly there were would be many changes. All accounts seemed like good ideas at the time.

When remembering by-gone days, people perceive things differently. Some of the author's friends will say, "It didn't happen that way." To those people the author points out, "That is the way it happened in the book." (Poetic license) Obviously some feelings were hurt; some people were embarrassed and offended at times. Woods sincerely apologizes to those folks and hopes they can forgive. He does not regret recording the events and takes pride in the fact that he saw it through to completion.
