Book Overview

A hilarious and perceptive examination of the mysteries of childhood and the perils of parenthood From August 1956 through April 1961 I controlled the traffic and streetlights in New York City and northern New Jersey. It was a daunting task for a five-year-old, but by the summer of '56 I realized I had a responsibility I could not ignore. My identity and my mission were top secret.

Witty and Sensitive

Could this be the same person I sat with at Shea Stadium through the longest ballgame in my history? Danny hit a home run this with one. I couldn't stop reading it and I was sad to get to the end. The writing technique and imagery will make you smile, laugh out loud, and cry all at the same time. If you're not from Jersey, it doesn't matter. It is life as we knew it then, as we know it now.

You will see yourself..............

This is one that you wish would go one a few more chapters. If you are like me, you will see yourself and your family in much of the book. Every chapter provides lots of laughs coupled with some insightful thoughts on how our family relationships shape us. I'm looking forward to reading it again. Don't miss this one.

A Great Read For All Ages

Dan Tomasulo gives an insightful look at life through a therapists eyes in "Confessions of a Former Child." I knew the book would be a "great read" for all ages as I wrestled my nineteen year old son to get my copy back from him and a chance to devour another chapter. The stories captivated my attention from the start with funny anecdotes about family obligations, and heartfelt accounts of the emotions tied to the birth of a child, as well as the death of aging parents. A thoroughly delightful interpretation of life's twists and turns that keeps the reader enthralled from beginning to end. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to be entertained and enlightened, as the stories in this memoir merge both wonderfully.

Confession from someone who loved this book.

I have never seen so much love, hate, anger, laughter, and resolution in a book. There were moments that I laughed hysterically out loud. Other times I was mesmerized at the profoundness of some situations. I even took a half a day of work off to finish the rest of the book. It was like watching someone bake a cake. It seems so simple until its time to do it. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone! Thank you so much to the author for the experience of your experiences!

Confessions of a satisfied reader

This is an extremely insightful book, written with humor and love on every page. I couldn't put it down. At 3 in the morning with tired eyes, I was still saying "just one more story, just one more". I've gifted this book to everyone I know.
