About the Book

Wherever a person earns a living, there may exist an overreaching hierarchy of power. This hierarchy may be invisible to onlookers outside of the workplace. However, for those who earn a living beyond the veiled shadows of this work world, things are not as congenial as they seem from the outside. It is a culture fueled by privilege for the few, timidity, and an air of untouchability by those who call the shots. Striving to keep the establishment functioning and flourishing are those who achieve but are not valued or rewarded for their loyalty nor for their accomplishments. Ivory Tower Power is a satirical work that pulls back this veil and sheds light on the value of those in an organization who are often overlooked by the hierarchy while keeping the wheels of progress rolling forward. Ivory Tower Power is a fun read about a serious subject.

About the Author

The author enjoys sports and adventure. Many everyday events can take on a life of their own when viewed through the eyes of an adventurer. The author looks at situations and considers the question, What if? A forty minute subway trip to work is no longer just routine if the napping rider does not notice the small spherical travel drive that has been slipped into his coat pocket. The drive contains encrypted codes and markers. He is now unknowingly transporting highly sought after information as a most unlikely carrier. The intent of someone whom he does not know is to later retrieve the travel drive from it’s unsuspecing transporter without his being aware of it. This is a trip to work through the eyes of an adventurer.
