PEELING BACK THE LAYERS is a miscellaneous collection of ideas which explore subjects in further detail. Larson employs the object lesson of an "onion", which if peeled back has multiple layers, each one different from the ones before. The book is an examination, an exploration, a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th look at otherwise obvious topics. He digs beneath the surface leading the reader into new insights and understandings. From the funny to the very serious, they will make you laugh or cry and want to discuss, possibly argue. Who knew a cause of divorce has something to do with improper toilet paper roll installations? Is there really a tried and true method to "winning the heart of a lady?" Are there benefits to aging? Larson describes 20 of them. Who knew that porcupines and human have similar behavior? Was MOBY DICK the monster or was it really Captain Ahab? What was Grandma's wisdom? Why are scars such a wonder? Are Ghosts really real, really? How to get "high" not using alcohol, drugs, sex, escapism, or bingeing anything. You'll hear Jiminy Cricket sing, "Proverbs, proverbs, there so true - proverbs tell you what to do." When does love insist upon a kick in the arse? Is distraction a distraction? The book is simply a rambling romp through three dozen and more ideas, leading the reader to distant lands of the mind and heart.
