This a book about the game of chess from both viewpoints: Winning & Losing
At Cape Canaveral during the 1960's I wrote procedures for Quality Control inspectors and engineers; later at the Kennedy Space Center I wrote maintenance manuals for the government (Corps of Engineers), and then, working as a Technical Writer for Grumman Aerospace on the Apollo Moon Project, I wrote procedures for astronauts for in-flight orbital operations on the LEM (Lunar Excursion Module). In the years since, I have worked as a design engineer, a Quality Engineer, a technical writer, and a Quality Assurance Manager. Now I've decided to go for it and revisit my long neglected career in freelance writing. I have the enviable status of an older man on Social Security with a younger, beautiful wife who works. Let's hope my high school teacher was right. As you can see, I'm a little slow in following advice. Assuming that it's never too late, though, I've decided to take Mark Twain's advice: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” As long as you are breathing, and have a pulse, it's never too late.
