Editorial Reviews

Review

Judging from his accomplishments--all realized by age 34--you'd assume Parker Schaffel has something to say. And he does. But his sensory storytelling is the book's real strength; we root for him because of his dedication to each task. The author is a man's man, and it shows. But even those who know little about F-16s, football or heavy metal will appreciate his engaging stories and scrappy mentality.

- BlueInk Review
 
Parker Schaffel's heartfelt, captivating memoir Get After It recalls an unimaginable eight-year-long emotional roller coaster in pursuit of an officer's position in the air force. It could have broken his spirit, but it ultimately led to victory and a life of meaning and purpose. Honest and forthright in sharing both triumphs and defeats, the book makes the best of each turn of events. It is enlivened by colorful and often humorous descriptions of people and places. Included photographs add to the imagery. Get After It is a memoir that eloquently conveys the notion that single-minded pursuit of a goal is worthwhile, even when sacrifices are necessary to achieve it.

- Foreward Reviews

From the Back Cover

Parker Schaffel hasn't done everything, but by 34 years of age, he certainly had done a lot: He served in the US Navy as an intelligence officer, jumped out of planes more than 50 times, ran a successful financial planning practice, released multiple albums from his solo music project, served in Iraq, Afghanistan, Bahrain, and Jordan, and worked for the CIA and State Department. During those experiences, he kept a journal. Years later, those journal entries morphed into this book: seven stories of inspiration, motivation, and deep-seated energy of finding inner strength when it mattered most...and getting after it.
