The Art of Life

by Charles J. Hamm

A combination of short essays and observations and modern art, The Art of Life provides a unique perspective on the politics, culture, and attitudes of modern American life. Hamm points out the contradictions and failures of politics that have frustrated Americans for decades and urges us all to cooperate more and take more responsibility.

Born in 1937 in Brooklyn, New York, CHARLES J. HAMM worked through dyslexia (and possibly other learning disabilities) and had two extraordinarily successful careers: the first in advertising and marketing, the second in community banking; each lasting about twenty-one years. His business experiences, philanthropic interests, fine art collecting, and painting combine to present inspirational insights in The Art of Life.
