The title of Bill Birnbaum's A Lifetime of Small Adventures speaks for itself. In his memoir, Bill tells of his exploits from his mischievous boyhood to his adventurous senior years. Upon retirement, he and his wife, Wendy, applied to join the Peace Corps.

When the Peace Corps’ medical department turned him down, the Birnbaums sold their home, put everything they owned in storage, and purchased one-way airline tickets to Arequipa, Peru. They searched and found volunteer opportunities in a poor community in the Peruvian Andes.

Unusual, but typical for a fellow who’s spent a lifetime looking for adventure.

Back in the 1950s, young Bill put pennies on the railroad tracks so that the oncoming train would “squirt” the pennies off to the side as projectiles. He thus shot holes in the billboards aside the tracks. As a teenager with a brand new driver's license, he picked up "The Hitchhiker in the Dark", who turned out to be wanted for hijacking a truck. And some years later, while hitchhiking in San Diego, Bill got a ride from a fellow who was then smuggling three illegal aliens in the trunk of the car.

In addition to stories of adventure, he also relates his lessons learned while adventuring. “Life’s most important lessons are learned during adventurous events,” Bill said, who also admits to being quite opinionated. He feels that modern society are too busy and too materialistic -- that every one of us needs to maintain our dignity.

His stories support these messages.

Bill also believes that most people have experienced their own share of adventure. “Readers will read of my adventures and reflect on similar adventures which they’ve experienced," he hopes.

Look for A Lifetime of Small Adventures at bookstores everywhere.
