"You can't learn to swim by taking a correspondence course." One-liners. Used by everyone from Winston Churchill to Rodney Dangerfield, they can be poetic, profound, or outrageously funny. A good one-liner may initially appear shallow or silly, but in fact packs a powerful message in deceptively few words. In "Turpen Time," Mike Turpen offers fifty shades of life in the form of short stories, each woven around a one-liner. Entertaining and humorous, dead serious and sober, these stories offer lessons for living a good, happy life. In everything from nocturnal meetings in the White House with President Bill Clinton and Les Moonves, to a first kiss, somewhere between the swing set and the dog house, Mike will charm you with his high-energy approach to life, law, politics, and the pursuit of happiness. "Through both work and family, I've lived--and learned how to live--an extraordinary life. In our daily struggle for significance, it's imperative to realize that we are not perfect. A few mistakes are better than perfect inaction. Stories you'll read here have humbled me. I share them, knowing that we have all been humbled, chastened, and even embarrassed by our actions at various points in our lives. Often, such experiences teach us the best lessons. It reminds us that we can learn via the OPE method--other people's experiences--but that only goes so far. People can tell you about different swimmer's strokes and what to do when you get in water over your head, but ultimately, we all have to take the plunge ourselves. I did. We all do."
