Mediocrity in Ten Easy Steps

Mediocrity is quite dishonored, unobserved and totally unorganized. This book tries to bring the subject to real life. Based on experience the author hopes to provide benchmarks in the development of people so they can determine and manage their own direction. Readers may use the guideline to move up or, like a happy crab, sideways. Each chapter and subject uses a liberal dose of tongue and cheek to balance actual experiences in guiding the reader. There is constant and tiresome repetition to validate the theme of mediocrity. Readers may be amused, enraged, challenged but hopefully, not bored as they plow through the pile of droppings seeking the pony of truth. Al Michaud was born in North Carolina and graduated from the University of Illinois after a calm spell in the Navy during World War II. Recognizing the difficulty of hitting a moving target, Al moved through several careers with major and minor organizations specializing in real or impending disasters of a large scope. After retiring as a Vice President of Conrail, Al formed a one man consultancy giving ridiculous advice to credulous clients. Now he is enjoying life in a four stoplight town in Western North Carolina and chuckling at the eternal and perpetual repetition of all life’s artifacts. .

This volume is one in a series of monographs being issued under the general title of "Disorders of Human Communication". Each monograph deals in detail with a particular aspect of vocal communication and its disorders, and is written by internationally distinguished experts. Therefore, the series will provide an authoritative source of up-to-date scientific and clinical informa tion relating to the whole field of normal and abnormal speech communication, and as such will succeed the earlier monumental work "Handbuch der Stimm und Sprachheilkunde" by R. Luchsinger and G. E. Arnold (last issued in 1970). This series will prove invaluable for clinicians, teachers and research workers in phoniatrics and logopaedics, phonetics and linguistics, speech pathology, otolaryngology, neurology and neurosurgery, psychology and psychiatry, paediatrics and audiology. Several of the monographs will also be useful to voice and singing teachers, and to their pupils. G. E. Arnold, Jackson, Miss. F. Wincke1, Berlin B. D. Wyke, London Since it was their chatter which prompted the question. this book is dedicated to Sarah and VickY; to Peter who provided some of the answers; to Dorothy in gratitude; and to Him who in the beginning was the Word. Preface These pages are the long-delayed product of questions prompted by the sponta neous chatter of my two daughters when they were little. It was only possible to begin to explore these unformed thoughts through the repeated kindness of medi cal friends who allowed me to record their new-born children.
