More About the Author
After receiving a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering with Distinction from the University of Virginia and a Master of Science from Stanford University, he worked as an ocean research engineer in the development of deep submergence systems. Part of his work dealt with vehicles that could freely dive to 20,000 feet of water depth. He also participated as a hyperbaric chamber operator for manned dives inside a pressure chamber to 1,500 feet. He holds one U.S. Patent for an underwater mooring system.
After his stint as an ocean research engineer, Philip was an environmental and energy engineer, a trial attorney, a public securities attorney, an investment banker, a corporate executive, a private equity manager (in Africa), a strategic consultant, a cartoonist, an illustrator, a website manager, and author. He received his law degree from the University of Minnesota.
One of his mentors once told Philip that it wasn't that he couldn't hold down a job; he couldn't even hold down a career!
He is married with two adult children and two beautiful granddaughters, who are his pride and joy.
Phil's biography has been included in Who's Who in America and Who's Who in the World for many years.

My favorite is the Easter Island statue who pursues a career in dance. There are also microbes who nosh on petroleum, whales who file lawsuits, leaves that worry about their mortality, and bears who face a rash of home invasions. If you miss "The Far Side," check out Mr. Chen's cartoons.
The Kindle is not the ideal display platform for cartoons, I sometimes wished I could enlarge the hand drawn lettering as I can regular fonts. Still, I enjoyed this book very much.
Note: Comment has been made about the size of the cartoons. On my DX, the cartoons were easily readable, even more so when I zoomed into them.
