About the Book

This book is a belated attempt by Jim Walters to explain just what happened to a life that early on seemed so full of promise. Any successes in life were always cancelled out by bad decisions on his part or just plain bad luck. The multiple instances of bad luck and the multiple bad decisions on his part seemed to produce a lifetime that seemed to have no direction at all. But an obsessive-compulsive personality disorder and subsequent depression, neither of which was discovered until midlife, adds some possible understanding as to just what went on.


About the Author

Jim Walters, a.k.a. Joseph James Walters, felt the need to explain a life that never seemed to go anywhere. After a snakebitten high school life, he raced through Notre Dame in only nine years to obtain a degree in industrial management that he never used. He then picked up a master’s degree at Indiana University to keep up with those staying in school to avoid Vietnam. Of course, that second degree was also worth little. He did, however, find his lifetime employment niche while in the army as a keypuncher.
