This book is collection of poems throughout the writer's life. The first part is a collection of poems mostly about life and the pain it can cause. Thus, Broken Windows. It emits a great deal of emotion and some of the poems are real tear jerkes. The next part is about the chapter headings of his books, short, but beautifully written. Mr. Robinson is a fine and talented author. I look forward to more of his work. I have read his other book, "Fill my Eyes" which is a book I could not put down.

Very deep and insightful. When you take into accout that the author penned these verses at such a young age, you realize that he was (and still is) attuned to his own feelings as well as those around him.

I just received my copy of "Broken Windows Reflections of a Fool" and I am really impressed with this book on poems.

It starts with the really nice cover, muted purple with trees in the background. That just makes you want to walk into those trees and see what's inside. Just my thoughts, but I think it adds a lot as it makes you really think, "what's inside this book?"

I like the way that the author has put his poems in several chapters. Each one is different and most people should find a little of themselves in some of his poems. I know that I did in several of them. It really felt like he was reading my mind with his poems. Terry has a great gift of putting his soul into his poems, enough to feel that he has lived way beyond his years. He speaks so much about life, good and bad.

Sometimes they make you feel sad, but I think that's a good thing, as it shows how deep he thinks when he writes. I've gained a lot of perspective about life, after reading this book. I'm sure that others will feel the same.

Great job, Terry and I hope that we see more of your books in the future.

Congradulations on a job well done.

Linda

More About the Author

Born and raised in Salt Lake City, award winning author, Terry Robertson was first published at the age of 19 in audio form by the prestigious Library of Congress. He is the author of the novel "Fill My Eyes", which garnered him tremendous critical recognition, as well as his original book of verse published for the first time in book form, the critically successful "Broken Windows, Reflections of a Fool". Mr. Robertson is quoted as stating "I am a regional writer with a social message, following in the tremendously large footsteps of Steinbeck. All my novels are set in my hometown reflecting the past. I have not been back to Salt Lake in 20 years, and the wild growth and change has prohibited me writing in the present day.

I strongly adhere to my own adage 'If you have to pay to get published, break your pen. Writing is a God given talent that is finely honed through practice or taking courses in certain weak areas. Never allow an instructor to tell you how to write. Classes are great for learning fundamental principles of the craft only. I have never personally taken any writing lessons or classes. I learned the hard way through years of struggle and hard work."

Terry Robertson dropped his middle initial in his books, but utilizes it on sites such as Amazon for clarity, and is also a top reviewer for Amazon, as well as EBay (using the pseudonym "susanfan"), along with other internet sites.

His second novel, "Heart of a Hobo" is set during "The Great Depression", reflecting frightening similarities in today's societies. The author loves crawling into a child's mind and creating books featuring our future leaders, our young people.

The author enjoys lively conversation about writing and his other loves: music, books, and movies. His work has run from easy to read to deep--filled with long complex sentences, and always a large dose of "sharp, biting wit".

A current resident of Asheville, NC, the author's goal is to return to his native Utah roots. He enjoys hearing from fellow writers and readers. The author is a renowned "introvert", yet paradoxically is a "people person" who loves making new acquaintances and friends.

The author was born bilingual and loves languages and is fluent in German and Spanish, French and continues to learn other tongues. He is a life-long record collector and personal historian on singing icon CONNIE FRANCIS. He loves trivia, and has been quoted: "Hang around me long enough and you'll learn all kinds of worthless information."
