About the Author
Praise For How I Learned That I Could Push the Button…
"How I Learned That I Could Push The Button is the personal memoir of Jerome Gold and drawn directly from his experiences in the Vietnam War. Discussing the issues of perceived vs. actual threat, loyalty, obligation, how abstraction is used to manipulate others, and the brutal and terrible side to war itself, How I Learned That I Could Push The Button is a very sober recounting of a troubled and hazardous time. Also serving as a companion to the Jerome Gold’s novel, “Sergeant Dickinson”, How I Learned That I Could Push The Button deftly explores how the fictional Sergeant Dickinson might have lived and been in the decades following that novel’s conclusion." — Midwest Book Review, January 17, 2004
