TEO Excerpts

Preface

I hope that you will laugh, be surprised, be affirmed and, above all, be entertained by this fiction.  In the relatively short time it took me to write this book, opioids grew from an imminent crisis to a full-blown epidemic.  This plague is on everyone’s mind at one time or another, in one form or other.  To avoid redundancy and to create awareness of what I think might be the next epidemic, I have focused on another related issue that has the potential to become the next drug crisis.

A note about the title character.  I have known some successful executives whose high self-interest and low ethics resembles that of our TEO.  I also know several equally successful business people who use their positions of power to make the world a better place.  Bless ‘em.
