About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
Joe Curtin (1915-2000) was a hobo, a deep sea diver, a steam fitter, a pile-driver, a self-educated man, an adventurer and, in his words, "A Construction Stiff." His memoirs bring to life the arduous times of the Depression along with a great appreciation for an honest work ethic.
A Washington, D.C. native of Irish descent, Joe worked on the first Chesapeake Bay Bridge, the St. Lawrence Seaway, The Raeburn Legislative Office Building, and scores of other jobs, including the building of a necessary supply line in Cam Rahn Bay, Vietnam.
Any hard working American would appreciate all that Joe accomplished.
Anyone not knowing him, would probably think this book is fiction.
Deftly constructed at 96 pages, Joe Curtin: Memoirs of a Construction Stiff is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Workplace Culture category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Joe Curtin meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $9.95.
Additionally, Joe Curtin can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks
