From the Publisher:

The following comments have been received by us or by the author since the book was released:

"Congratulations on "Secret Pleasures: A Journey in My Mind." It's a fascinating collection of. raucous laughter provoking stories. A thoroughly delightful read that seems all too short when we regretfully reach the end."

Chair of a University English Dept.

"I've just taken the Journey in Your Head for the second time. It is a wonderful book."

Retired General, U. S. Army

"Tom Fitzpatrick has brought forth that rare thing, a fascinating memoir which is fun to read. It is chock full of unusual people, vivid scenes, and original anecdotes, some humorous, some touching, none dull."

Alabama Cardiologist

"I feel a little guilty in reading Secrets, but not so much that I can put it down. It's great."

Retired Internist

"I thought the writing was just superb. Opening paragraphs are so crisp and quickly to the point. Chapter endings are well thought and carefully done to perfection. I am haunted by visions of a male hummingbird playing parent. Perhaps an offspring will return."

Public Relations Counsel

"The supper dishes are not washed--the floors not swept because of my enchantment with your book."

Retired School Teacher

"Your book arrived Thursday and we have been reading it ever since, & must congratulate you on a really excellent piece of work....Very much like the galleon on the cover, based on well- known 16th century engraving."

Professional ship modeler, southern England

"The inside of your head is a wonderful and diverse place. It is filled with wit and scholarship. Your book is going into that little section of our library where the favorites live."
