Retired and still climbing the monkeybars!

Background Information


Ted Pittman has worked at high-tech companies all across the U.S. and Europe. His range of professional projects extends from the World Trade Center to the Lunar Excursion Module. In his spare time, he has developed rockets, tracking systems, gyroscopic engines and artificial intelligence software. The Monkeybars of Life is an autobiographical novel.

The uniqueness of The Monkeybars of Life is that the protagonist is from the inner city and yet the book is not about drugs or sex. Rather, it tells about a technically talented man's struggles at work and at home.

One thread of the story deals with the protagonist (Nate) passionate desire to complete his anti-gravity engine which he accidentally invented. Late in the story, he discovers an identical engine is being developed by an inventor in Scotland.

A second thread reveals Nate's feelings of anger and guilt over his failed marriage. The reader gets to experience the inner life of a man who feels he was unjustly separated from his family.

The Monkeybars of Life goes beyond racism and explores some of the obstacles to creativity and the consequences of a lack of formal education.

It is the author's sincere hope that the book will serve as a guide to life choices young people may face if they are creative and have uncompromising minds.
