Announcing Bob Brodsky's new book!

Marching Bands Make Me Cry:
Hearing Drumbeats and Choosing Your Tribe

"Have you ever met people whose chosen careers did not sit well on them, to whom you wanted to say, “It seems from over here you’re not really well suited for this kind of work”? Well, I was one of those people, and I was doing the best I could. Eventually (and fortunately for the people around me), the influences of certain people I knew in my early years rose out of the past to help me put myself on a more appropriate track, and I wrote a little book to honor them for what they did. It’s called. “Marching Bands Make Me Cry: Hearing Drumbeats and Choosing Your Tribe.” It’s about being raised Victorian during the McCarthy era. It’s about people who challenged me to a different world view. But mostly it’s about those other people who helped me to become the guy I was in the first place.." -Bob Brodsky
