Wesley Stone was not an ordinary man. He wanted to be. He wanted to do his work, raise his family, and live in peace. This was possible until it became known that he was biologically different. His descendants would become a new release of the human species. In order to understand the gift they inherited, his children needed to uncover their family stories. Knowing the past, they would make their future. That future would be the future of the human race.

More wit and humor from the author of Over the Hill Without a Paddle: And Other Signs of Confusion in a New Millennium. This time he gives us his skewed take and observations on everything with titles from A to Z-except for nine letters in between that apparently aren't that funny-and including the numbers One, Two, Three, and the words First and Second. Check it out. Among the subjects that catch his fancy are wives, husbands, children, grandchildren, doctors, hornets, birds, ants, dogs, morticians and sex. He pitches shows to TV programmers, points out a shortcut to young men in the back seats of cars, and scrutinizes both Family Jewels and Amazon Undies. All of which-and more-go to prove that even someone who has inched his way over the hill and then rolled down the other side can still find plenty to look at if he just lands facing up.
