James Chisman shares stories of culture and adventure in an Xlibris release

Having visited 78 countries in fifty years, author James Chisman, Ph.D., shares his memorable experiences with the reader in Travels And Tribulations: A Memoir, an Xlibris release.

As an industrial engineering professor for 30 years at Clemson University, the author had many opportunities to travel including sabbaticals, productivity consulting work, summers off, conducting a student study abroad program and being a Fulbright Fellow to Ireland. The results of his consulting work    he brought into his classrooms and was included in his textbooks. This book is a product of his many escapades, which he shares with readers through vivid retelling.

“I love to travel to new places and meet new people, history and education being the driving forces. Prior to visiting each country, I would study its history and geography. I didn’t go anywhere with the expectation of finding fodder for a book, but I was open to new experiences and adventure. I, hopefully, have found enough interesting encounters and observations to fill this book,” the author says.

From Cuba to New Mexico, the Middle East to Europe, and Zambia to Alaska, the author shares with readers his passion for travel and discovery. Travels And Tribulations: A Memoir is a book rich with culture and people which readers will definitely find worldly.
