Rolling Pennies in the Dark: A Memoir with a Message
"It really does hurt to get stabbed." With these startling opening words of this inspirational memoir, we are introduced to one man's desperate and treacherous journey through the throes of unimagined childhood poverty, abuse, and dysfunction--which, among other things, included him and his family being evicted and forced to move thirty-four times by the time he was seventeen years of age. But Douglas MacKinnon's journey didn't end there. He eventually escaped the devastating effects of his childhood and found his way to the power-infused back-rooms and corridors of winning presidential campaigns, the White House, and the Pentagon. But how? This intriguing, engaging story tells the whole story.
