Patrick Dykie marks his publishing debut with the release of “Simple Observations: A Humorous Look at the Absurdity of the World around Us” (published by iUniverse). The book shares a fun collection of short narrative stories dealing with people, places, things, animals and popular culture from everyday life.

As a natural storyteller, Dykie, in his book, looks at everyday things and experiences in a funny way that everyone can relate to. He emphasizes how the book stays away from polarizing subjects such as politics and religion, and does not use profanity. It is family friendly and is appealing to many age groups. Much of the humor is self-deprecating, and never mean.

“It allows the reader to laugh at themselves, as they see themselves in many of the situations I get myself into,” the author says. “By the end of the book, they will not only have had a nice, funny, easy ride, but will feel good knowing that someone else shares many of their own, personal experiences.”
