Just Robbed a Bank-Tim Scott

It's a self help book for would be bank robbers.

https://www.amazon.com/Just-Robbed-B...c%2C232&sr=8-1

The hardest thing to remember when you are a bank robber is that you still look like everybody else. The giant sign that says JUST ROBBED A BANK is not flashing over your head, it is IN your head.

This is a book of stories. Stories I lived before, during, and after becoming a bank robber. And make no mistake, even though I haven't robbed any banks for years, I am still a bank robber. Once I understood the flashing sign was in my head, not over it, it was going to be in my head forever. That's what being a bank robber taught me about the defining choices we make: They can't be unmade. But the most important choice I made wasn't choosing to be a bank robber. Being a bank robber just put me on the path to being everything I ever wanted to be, and more.

Because it taught me that I could choose.

Well, maybe the self help book joke was a little too flatly delivered there. I posted that on release day and was a little drunk on my own cleverness. I now have sufficient feedback to say that the book is funny by general consensus, not just because I think it is, so today I will describe it as a humorous memoir.

A quote from my first review:

"The book contains not only humorous stories of his times as a bank robber, but also strong life lessons. I would call it a well written and surprising sequel to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance."

I'm old enough to remember Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance as a 'must read' book, so I took that as high praise.

Should I have called it Zen and the Art of Robbing Banks?

Three reviews and the closest thing to a complaint is someone saying they wish it was longer. If I had known writing a book would be so good for my ego I'd have done it a long time ago.
