Book Preface

I have a friend who keeps asking me why I am writing this book. Especially as I have said a thousand times: “No, that is personal. No, I won’t talk about that.” What made me change my mind? I wonder myself. Something changed me. I think—and I am not saying I know—I think that I’ve always thought of myself as an actor. Now in the last few years I’ve seen that creature whom I created sitting around saying, “Hey, what goes on, what are we going to do? We’re wasting time. Let’s get going!”

Shut up! I’m sick of you. I’m not going to hide behind you anymore. Who are you anyway? You’re not me. You’re “that great big beautiful doll.” You’re the lucky side of the coin. You were born at the right time. You looked right. You sounded right. You were lucky. You caught on and got rich. Good. I’m glad that you’ve had a good time. Now I’m going to take over.

What is that you’re saying? Who am I?

Well, I’m me—I’m what is called the power behind the throne. I am your—your character. Isn’t that what they call it? Your “Do this. Don’t do that.” Your fundamentals.

I run your ship. You’re the ship. You’re getting a bit long in the tooth and I may not be able to sell you as easily as I used to.

You have a right foot which doesn’t work all that well. I mean it hurts. In 1982 you ran into that telephone pole. Stupid of you. Making a fancy comment about that shipyard just at the southeast edge of Saybrook Point. Listen—so it hurts! But at least they didn’t have to cut it off. Yes, of course it threw your whole body off balance—and now your back is painful too.
