My friendship with Bob might open legitimate objectivity questions among some readers, thus ruling out my writing a review of "Blue-Eyed Boy." But that's their problem. It's a damn fine book, one that avoids the annoying tendency of memoirs to be exercises in self-glorification. It is a story of courage and determination told with honesty, wit and humor. Courage, determination, honesty, wit and humor are, in fact, the very words that spring to mind whenever I think of Bob Timberg. Anyone who savors a gripping story skillfully rendered should run, not walk, to their nearest bookstore and buy a copy.
