Ralph's Books

The Truth & Other Lies is a collection of the best from Ralph Hood's award-winning newspaper column in "The Madison County Record." He writes of love, ethics, music, honor, pride, sadness and joy, as well as the confusion of childhood and the frustrations of trying to be an adult. If you ever made a fool of yourself, Ralph's stories will make you look brilliant in comparison and give you a laugh to boot.

Ralph Hood, CSP, definitely looks at life from a different angle. A professional humorist, Ralph sees humor where others see routine, logic where others see chaos, and beauty where others see nothing at all. He quotes country music and fine poetry, Bo Diddley and his mother, and describes from first-hand experience schoolboy love, sky diving, piloting airplanes, swinging on a circus trapeze, being a guest on Oprah, and eating in small-town cafes from Georgia to Kansas.

A friend once said that "Ralph is interested in everything, and has tried most things." It's not only true, but he remembers it all and tells of it in a style that has been compared to Will Rogers and Mark Twain. (Not necessarily favorably compared, but compared, nevertheless.)

One of America's favorite public speakers, Ralph has traveled in 50 states and several foreign countries, and has "never met a place I didn't like." He still considers himself a wide-eyed tourist and will delight you with tales of his adventures and misadventures from Hawaii to Spain and from Alaska to San Juan.

Read and enjoy.
