The Half a Doctor - memoirs from my "asylum"
HE WAS CONNED, SEDUCED, ASSAULTED, MUGGED, and held up at gunpoint. In the fifteen years that the author spent as manager of The Roger Williams Hotel, he probably experienced more adventure than most individuals do in a lifetime. The author describes his emotional responses to numerous tragedies, some of which would traumatize most men, with the interjection of humor to soften the pain.
The writer becomes philosophical at times, as he accepts a fatalistic explanation for the circumstances that successfully propel him from Pharmacy, to Hotel Management, to Executive Search Consulting…with a little construction management thrown in to the mix.
To write the memoir, this “Half-a-Doctor”, sorted through thousands of hotel guest stays and has compiled his most memorable encounters. This book chronicles mystery, suspense, and tragedy, as well as sexually provocative incidents.
For the most part, though, the author puts emphasis on the humorous situations. Most occurrences are hilarious—many are truly and utterly unbelievable. Yet, everything in this memoir did occur as the author describes them.
