ABOUT THE BOOK
“When I was a kid, my father put me to work. The ‘Filipino Building Maintenance Company’ was the name of his business and the tools of his trade were mops, brooms, toilet brushes and vacuum cleaners. As my father’s only employee, I couldn’t do anything right. I couldn’t tell the difference between a toilet brush and a toothbrush, but the one thing it did for me was show me how to write. I credit my father for showing me and to him, I owe a great debt.
