Author CD Bollman, alias Arlo Card, is a self-described genius, who lives life on the edge as his own “shrink.” Welcome to the inner sanctum of the mind of CD Bollman and the life observations of a wandering underdog.

How does a self-appointed GENIUS deal with failure? Naturally, he, or she would have to go “intermittently insane” for a while…a LONG while to be exact. It’s said that there is a fine line between genius and insanity. Arlo Card…(that’s me)…lives directly on the epicenter of it, always looking for the proverbial equinox.

Arlo Card lives in a little world where the abstract version of Murphy’s Law reigns supreme, and the REAL world is but a sideshow. It’s not always a pretty picture…but maybe…just MAYBE…it’s amusing.

If you are black, or white, male or female, old or young, educated or “not very”… and have plans to “make it to the top,” but can’t get off the bottom because maybe your transportation is only a skateboard, and your bills are nearly insurmountable, this book is for YOU!

Even if you are economically comfortable, never having been off of the proverbial Easy Street, and everything ALWAYS seems to work out just dandy…this book is for YOU! If you are, or were, a genius, living the life of a menial laborer, while trying to succeed at something else, and ended up neurotic instead…then this book is for YOU!

If you are into quirky abstract humor blended with melancholic metaphors, all mixed into a timeline from the mid 20th century to the present, you have come to the right place. It’s quite possible that whatever you may have ever wondered about is in this book.

Do not, however, let this book distract you from your goals of knowing this world, finding truth, and thinking for yourself.

    Thank you Dr. Bollman for deeming me as having "general lack of relevance" in your book. With that said, the book can be somewhat funny, ironic and sarcastic. Reminds me of Forrest Gump.
