Klappentext

The Roaring Fifties and Beyond: Service and College Years then Climbing the Corporate Ladder is Volume II of a four-volume autobiography titled He Who Climbs a Tree and Hollers (from the little ditty, "He who has a thing to sell and goes and whispers in a well, is not as apt to get the dollars as he who climbs a tree and hollers"). It is the incredibly interesting and drama-packed life story of John J "Jack" Gargan. This volume spans the thirty-one-year period of his life from the time he was an eighteen-year-old office boy making thirty-five dollars a week until he was a forty-nine-year-old entrepreneur with a six-figure annual income. In between, he had a plethora of unique and interesting experiences, like working as a dishwasher in a popular roadhouse, being a "pitchman" at a seashore boardwalk concession, helmsman of a small warship during a fierce Atlantic storm, making moonshine in backwoods Alabama, being sole support of a wife and two children while working his way through college, having a successful career selling insurance and securities, becoming a world-class handwriting analyst working cruise ships and five-star resort hotels, pioneering a new industry (financial planning), parlaying a $5,000 real estate investment into more than a million dollars, writing a book-of-the-month selection, and becoming an accomplished pool hall habituate along the way. This is an in-depth look into the life of a success-driven young man during those tumultuous times. It is a perfect follow-up story to Volume I, Growing Up Fast, Poor, Cold, and Hungry: A Firsthand Account of Life during the Great Depression and a fitting prelude to Volume III, The Productive Years, subtitled "Business and Politics, But Not as Usual!"
