Marty's Musings is available at:
"Marty is a deep and thoughtful observer of the human condition...someone with an observant eye for detail, with perceptive insights into everyday actions and events that are at the same time commonsensical and profound.
It is clear that service in the Navy was for him, as it was for me, a major life-shaping force. Marty's insights into the virtues and follies of military life are delightful! The military bureaucratic foolishness that some of his tales highlight can be humorous or tragic, depending on the circumstances.
Marty's stories about his business career offer us a picture as to how traits we all purport to hold in high esteem are still valued. Common sense, plain direct speaking, honest bargaining—all flow as virtues embedded in the pages of this book. In an age of business speculations and clever sharpsters, this book should be required reading.
This book represents his views and values which reflect our hope that Metuchen, New Jersey, and America, even while experiencing the inevitable changes that the future holds for us, remain committed to the fundamental principles that Marty has shared with us in this delightful read..."
