Synopsis: "Take My Advice, Mr. President" is a unique collection of ten humorous short stories originally published by Liberty Magazine fifty years ago. They are framed as correspondence from a small town newspaper editor, who writes to President Franklin Roosevelt with advice on national affairs. Two of these fantasies became the basis for Walt Disney's hit movie "The Absent-Minded Professor" (and the recent remake entitled "Flubber").
About the Author: Samuel W. Taylor was born in 1907, one of the thirty-six children born to John W. Taylor, a polygamist and an a apostle in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Sam grew up in Provo, Utah, and attended Brigham Young University. In World War II, he served in the Army Air Force Public Relations Office in the European theater of war, reaching the rank of 2nd Lieutenant. Sam has penned countless stories, articles, and serial pieces for magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post, Colliers, and Esquire. His books include several works on the Mormon culture, such as "Family Kingdom" and "Nightfall at Nauvoo". He has been called "the Mark Twain of Mormondom." He is perhaps best known for the 1961 hit movie "The Absent-Minded Professor", produced by Walt Disney Studios.
