"A great book about friendship, growing up in the fifties, and a lost America that will never come again." Pat Conroy, New York Times Bestseller author

"What fun! It was like I was hanging out with Lumpy, Eddie and the guys from our show again. Every adult will be able to see something of themselves in these great stories of youth. They are a must read for anyone who longs for the simple, innocent fun of growing up with the spirit of the 50's and 60's. I feel like I know these loveable goofballs and I wish I could have spent more time with them. Not Exactly Rocket Scientists and Other Stories should be a television series itself, underscoring the sweetness, innocence and simplicity that have passed us by."  Tony Dow, "Wally Cleaver" on the TV show "Leave It To Beaver"

"Between the parenting prowess of the Greatest Generation and the luck that allows us to eventually recount our childhoods, Not Exactly Rocket Scientists and Other Stories recounts a world of innocence and adventure. As a reader who grew up in a world more often animated on screen than schoolyard, these stories bridge a distinct past with a present reality that -- fingers crossed -- will inspire future generations to look up from their screens and seek adventures of their own design."  Amanda Forbes Silva, essayist
