Based on what a trainer called him during his first day working at the Los Angeles Evergency Call Center, Schrader realized the truth in the title phrase--that all his life he had tended to attract trouble. Writing in a brisk, no-nonsense, conversational style, he describes his approach to life as a "go, see, do" adventure, with experiences as author, tanker, soldier, and even spy. A good first-person look at how the U.S. Army evolved over the last quarter of the 20th century. --Tom Elliott, BOOKS Editor, Mensa Bulletin and Mensa International Journal
From the Publisher
For his seventh book, Sh*t Magnet, Stephen J. Schrader delivers himself. A warrior raised to thrive in a world without medals or parades. Where the only reward for winning a battle is another assignment, and the prize for winning a war is an opportunity to teach the next generation of agents. He describes a life where the rewards to be earned are as astounding as the price to be paid is devastating.
