This real life adventure is about persistence which has always been with me. Persisting to be the best at whatever I do, would lead me to a successful life. -Gary Slemaker

Gary Slemaker, a successful pioneer of the information technology industry, chronicles his experiences and shares his life lessons from childhood to adulthood in his memoir, Itís About Time to Get Up.

As a self-proclaimed man of persistence, Slemaker details his lifeís highs and lows. He brings readers various instances when he falls short but later on realizes when itís time to get back upóand he does. Never giving up in the face of failure, he reminds everyone of the old saying about falling seven times but getting back up eight times and to strive to be excellent at whatever they do.

Filled with lessons and adventure, it is a book with much insight that everyone could use in their daily life. And he hopes that this autobiography will inspire people to be resilient despite lifeís challenges and to live life to the fullest. He shares, ďMy story is rich with memories, fun, love, adventure, happiness, unbelievable dog escapades, comedy, death, sadness, and conflicts.Ē
