Life is a series of experiences. We learn from everything that we do, and everything that we do becomes part of what we are. In his fifty five years of teaching biology and fifty two years of marriage to his wife Pat, Professor Marvin Druger’s experiences have been shaped by his boundless energy, quick wit, and tireless sense of adventure. With humor and refreshing candor Druger reflects on his many “misadventures” in this charming memoir. He shares his classroom anecdotes, fostering independent thinking in his students by making science fun and part of their everyday life. Druger offers insights on nurturing a successful marriage, on the value of childhood friendships, and the perils and unexpected rewards of aging. The Misadventures of Marvin, both hilarious and heartfelt, is a unique vision of life’s everyday trials and bounties, one that will resonate with and inspire many readers.
