Arthur C. Porcaro, a New Jersey-born father and grandfather who began his career in construction while attending Pompton Lakes High School and established his own business shortly after he married in 1977, has published his new book “The Funny Side of Contracting”: an enjoyable glimpse into the life of a general contractor.

The author writes, “Over the years of being in my own construction business, I have come across many unusual circumstances. Unusual might be putting it lightly. I think bizarre would be a better word to describe my experiences with the many people I have come across. In passing, I would sometimes mention some of the incidents to my friends and relatives, and their reactions were always the same. They would downright laugh hysterically and, most of the time, tell me to write a book about it.

Well, I have given much thought to the clients I have encountered throughout the years, as well as the persons I have employed over the years I have been in business. I always come to the same conclusion. Most of my encounters with people while running my business have been, to the best of my knowledge, downright crazy, eccentric, and even on another planet. So I say to you, the reader, read at your own risk because you can’t make this stuff up!”

Published by Page Publishing, Arthur C. Porcaro’s engrossing book is warmhearted and entertaining memoir for readers of all ages.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “The Funny Side of Contracting” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
