"This book is written to show how God used an unmentionable congenital deformity to turn the path of a hopelessly poor tenant farmer’s son from a dead-end path to his quest for a medical education. This change led to Army service that brought him exactly the minimum number of days of G.I. Bill needed to complete medical school. Stand in awe as Rock realizes this.
In Rock, Further Proof of God’s Sense of Humor, Doc relates incidents that range from the mundane to side-splitting to spine-tingling. Laugh as Doc Osborne says the boy “won’t have no peers among the little pee’rs.” Quake with him as he “outruns” a Russian Tommy-gun shortly after World War II."
