Almost Naked is a collection of anecdotes, both humorous and serious taken from the extraordinary experiences of Bob Porter. This is a book about lessons he learned from people, many of who are legends. It is presented as a series of verbal snapshots. Snapshots from qthose golden days of yesteryearq in his father's wild west in the Oklahoma oil fields. Snapshots of hilarious travel experiences. Snapshots of his mentors in the intelligence and business communities. Snapshots of his out-dueling cancer and the early onset of Parkinson's Disease. Finally, he and his wife's poignant struggle with the tragedy of their brain-damaged child. He describes his personal journey, conveying with equal skill the droll and the tragic. His witty and insightful style establishes him as a raconteur of note.General Jacob E. Smart General Jacob Smart (Four Stars) represents the finest class of human being with whom I have ever been privileged ... his clarity of thought, his decisiveness and humility, his pursuit of the a€œrighta€ answer and to be on the a€œright side of the argument. ... The other trait was a willingness to listen to new ideas, then act decisively. This certainly described Jake. But there were other experiences in Jakea#39;s past that hardened his personal steel in the crucible we call life.
