…via reading about others who march in fast and racy lanes. A touch of irreverent revelry never hurts.
Rockin’ Romance: The Pursuit and Promise Of Recreational Rutting as Told by Sex-Seekers Who Bare Their Lively Libidos.
Demonstrable value: “Rockin’ is erotica at its finest, a well-written and more polite Shades of Gray that is an instant turn-on.” Dr Jacqueline Myers, PhD, psychologist and certified sex therapist
Professional support: “Of all sexual aberrations, chastity is the strangest.” Amatole France
“Little did she know that I had just partied non-stop for days, or that my pencil dick was more of a night stick and perfectly serviceable for all kinds of sexual shenanigans but, sorry to say, had not been called on to do so by anything more enticing than my hand for weeks.” From the book
Excerpt: If you don’t believe that history repeats itself, read on and be convinced that it does. We arrived at my hotel on Waikiki Beach, I went into the bathroom to change into my swimsuit but came out naked, and with a swollen member that was still wet from our shag of an hour earlier. “Good God!” she shouted, as she dropped to her knees and gummed my thing until it spattered her tonsils and molars with what we came to call Joy Juices. She was a true sword swallower.Summary: This book is an anthology of true, life-changing searches for romance. As you might expect, authenticity and its sibling, believability, require that the language is salty, graphic, erotic, and touching on pornographic. I sincerely hope you understand and are not offended.
BigShots Bull*!@#: Deception, Deceit, Disconnect, and Duplicity in the Corporate Sewer
Demonstrative value:” Pete Geissler has written more than three million words of what he politely calls corporate gargle and now exposes as blatant bull. The amazing thing about his ‘accomplishment’ is that he did this in only 30 years and is still at it. The four sniff tests are worth the price of the book.” Len Weaver, Former Manager, Fortune 500 company
Professional support: “Two liars are company, three are a crowd, and four or more a chamber of commerce.” Dr. Lawrence Peter, author of The Peter Principle.
“…or a board of directors.” Pete Geissler
Lying is the greatest violation of man’s duty to himself. Immanuel Kant
Excerpt: This book can change the way you listen to BigShots—mostly businesspersons with a snapshot or two of politicians—as they pontificate for public consumption and personal gain. You’ll recognize the spin, that dastardly polite euphemism for lies that the advertising/PR folks coined years ago to anoint their profession with a bit of undeserved dignity. In the process, you might gain a more realistic grasp of what’s going on around you and how your mind is being manipulated, a.k.a. brainwashed.
In all modesty, you’re in good hands, some would say the best, which could be considered bullshit in itself: Who decides?
Summary: This is wicked, irreverent entertainment with a serious purpose: to expose the bullshitters around us and bring them to their knees in true penance and supplication. I might say that the book itself is bullshit, that the medium is the message. I could be right. You can decide for yourself.
Shallow Water Sailor and Heydays
Demonstrable value: “Ray Garra’s adventures (and misadventures) as a shallow water sailor and business executive will surely evoke Technicolor comic memories.” An early reviewer who prefers to be anonymous
Professional support: “He was one of those men who come in a door and make any woman with them look guilty.” F. Scott Fitzgerald
Excerpt: His initial climaxes came in small waves. He could feel the subtle tremors convulsing through her body and her soft Southern audible groans accentuated her body’s reactions. He had never felt himself so hard and he couldn’t believe…
Summary: Ray Garra bares his feelings, thoughts, and private parts in these audaciously bawdy and naughty autobiographical novels that take place in the sedate 1950s (which weren’t as sedate as you might imagine) and the salacious 1960s (which exploded in orgasmic gaiety).
Readers will delight at his raw hedonism that shames into puritanical hiding such classics as Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Peyton Place, and, most recently, Fifty Shades of Gray.
In Shallow Water Sailor, for example, you’ll meet Doris, who actually measured Ray’s %^&* and declared him fit for stardom in a porn movie. You’ll meet Ann, who risked life, limb, and career to spend sweaty weekends with Ray in hotels throughout New England.
The books have a serious side as well: Ray’s hair-raising adventures as commander of a small ship in the Bering Sea, and his fruitful if party-filled life in the printing business in Southern California.
All in all, these books are a romp in the sack and in the history of the good old U.S of A.
An Accidental Life: A Collection of Musings and Writings from the Wreckage
Demonstrable value: “When Pete Geissler describes his life as ‘accidental and squandered’, do not believe him. His writings, which he says are the results of fortuitous events, have improved many lives, including mine. I met Pete in Hawaii by accident, but we’ve stayed friends for years by design and respect. Read this book and you’ll see what I mean.” David Zimomra, former SVP, dck worldwide and now President, DZ Business Solutions LLC .
Professional support:” (Auto) biography is to give a man some kind of shape after his death.” Virginia Woolf
Excerpt: Steve Jobs and Socrates would learn, if they could spend an afternoon together, that they were avid searchers of truth and knowledge, constantly on the lookout for new ideas and insights that would explain their disparate worlds. They were avid champions of the individual…
Summary: The reason for my happy addiction to the word serendipity is clear to me: It’s true. I discovered as I was writing the story of my life–a vehicle that typically reveals nothing about the writer except his fading or skewed memory–that I was repeatedly the beneficiary of being in the right place at the right time without any forethought whatsoever. Some disbelievers and doubters might call it dumb luck. I prefer to call it fortuitous, and I’ll accept its benefits without guilt. I also call it accidental, and add that if I had planned or predicted those glad (mostly) happenings I would be a genius and perhaps the greatest sage the world has ever known.
