  • (1888PressRelease) August 04, 2010 - Fall '86 brings you into the comedic and personal life of the author during his first quarter as a UCLA freshman. Along the way are hilarious tales of what the author had to endure as a fraternity pledge, including strippers, beer-bongs, and road-trips. There is also the author's enrollment in a more conservative lifestyle: ROTC, which he tries desperately but sometimes fails to keep separated from the more outrageous fraternity way of life.

    Mixed in with this is the author's personal struggle to maintain decent grades, sanity in his dormitory, and a social existence outside of the fraternity. If you are a fan of Animal House, then you will enjoy this true adventure of the start of one man's college career.

    John Wilson (Los Angeles, CA) says "This book was one of the best I have read in a long time. A truly funny and accurate commentary on life as an incoming freshman and fraternity pledge. I plan to have my son and daughter read it before they attend college."

    After years of studying the anatomies of frogs, rats, sheep brains and humans, Craig Edward Amshel is now a practicing general and colon & rectal surgeon. Craig was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, graduated from North Hollywood High in 1986, attended UCLA on both an ROTC and fraternity scholarship, and then enjoyed BBQ and Blvd beer for four years while attaining his M.D. at Kansas University Medical Center. Surgical residency has taken Craig all over the country, including Roanoke, VA, Waterbury, CT, Phoenix, AZ, and Miami FL. During his free time, Craig enjoys surfing, biking, tennis, football, and karate.
