Nine Lives: A Convoluted Story of Passage

Rated 4.75/5 based on 7 reviews
A humorous account of the life's experiences of a true Renaissance man from the perspective of his Mojo. This perspective results in a harsh evaluation in what idiotic things an otherwise smart man can participate. Experiences from ocean sailing to racing cars, and flying airplanes leave the reader belly laughing at the way the Mojo's subject makes decisions and acts upon his sage advice.

Holy Cow! What a book.

Or should I say Holey Horse :-)

Too many funny stories. If it were not for the fact I have heard some of this stuff first hand, and know some of the folk in Walters life, I could have been fooled to thinking this was fiction material.

But alas it is most likely an accurate record of some extraordinary events.

When the statute of limmitations runs out on some events.......I look forward to the next edition of Master and Mojo.

Ohhh and for anyone contemplating reading this book, if you suffer from any forms of week bladder control....beware, i spent many a moment giggling with tears in my eyes.

Enjoy!

I have known Walter for quite a while, and while reading his book I could hear the stories in his own voice. Of course, many of them I actually did hear him tell, sitting around an airport over the years.

He has lived a very eventful life, and the stories are wonderfully told. You will want to get to know him in person, and if you do, your life will be richer.

As a co-conspirator in several of Walter's exploits, I can attest that he has only hit on the highlights of a life well and fully lived. The unabridged version would fill several volumes!

Review by: John Deakin on Nov. 12, 2012 :
A different kind of autobiography of a very unusual man. The kind of man who will truly arrive at the pearly gates exhausted, covered in mud, blood and beer, exclaiming "Damn, what a ride, what's next? Can I buy you a drink?" I'm not sure they'll know what to do with him! Hopefully, that's a few years off!

At first you'll be put off by "Mojo," but you'll soon be in the swing of things, not knowing whether to cheer for Mojo, or Walter.
