About the Author
Clinton "Joe" Andersen, Jr. spent two years in Russia as a missionary for the LDS Church. At age 19, he witnessed, firsthand, the devastation that Soviet communism had inflicted upon things like... customer service. That concept had been raped, pillaged and driven to extinction. There's nothing so strange as getting yelled at for not finding the sour cream on your own. It was no less strange for Joe to find himself, after two years, staring in complete awe and amazement at the cereal aisle of the grocery store. It was a formative experience, to say the least.
Upon his return, Joe met and married Karen, a woman with a special talent: a seemingly endless supply of patience with Joe's most eccentric undertakings, including a three-year venture into writing and publishing this very book. Before that, she endured a five-year construction project, which remained a constant eye-sore out the back window. During construction, Karen gave birth to two children. When the project was complete, Clayton and Shereen had a life-sized hobbit hole to call their own.
The Andersen hobbit hole has appeared in print media, such as The Mesa Tribune, The Los Angeles Times and Backyard Living magazine. It has also appeared on HGTV's "Offbeat America" and local news. In fact, it was awarded 3TV's "Best Home Sweet Home of 2006".
These media clips can be seen on Joe's YouTube channel at azhobbit.com, which also showcases his knack for video editing. Also on the channel is a true classic in filmmaking: "Clayton's Backyard Documentary".
In the meantime, with a bachelors degree in mechanical engineering from ASU, Joe has found work in various and surprising engineering fields: from water treatment plants to designing multiple subdivisions, from aerospace solenoid valves to turbine engine parts. It's not rocket science, but its close. Besides, Joe also found work in the field of brain surgery as a neurosurgical image guidance engineer.

You mean someone combined religion and politics into one book, and did so in a civil manner? From my persepctive, that is exactly what Joe has done.
See, it used to be that anytime I was talking with someone and learned they were a democrat, I would quickly change the subject to something else. I never wanted to talk politics with them.
Now, when someone says it, I say, "Okay, that's cool." It's not that I care less about them being a democrat, it's that it really doesn't matter. I can then talk with the person about anything, including politics, because I understand how they would see the situation given their background.
It's made my life more "understandingful."
Having purchased and read it, I highly recommend "How Can You Possibly be an Anti-Terrorist MUSLIM?
