“Making It Happen” is the revealing story of life in the Peace Corps in the mid-1970s where life wasn’t at all what he expected.

The attitudes of the people he met, the challenges, the annoyances, and yes, the rewards are all treated with humor, blunt realism and honesty. It’s not a sugarcoated view of the world, but it is eye-opening, especially when told from the personal perspective of a young American always trying to determine his next move as he experiences life in another country and learns about the world—and finds his place
