David Sahud

Autobiography Tells the Story of an American Businessman and Family Man in Late 20th Century USA

Wise-ass humor, tolerance, honesty and perseverance are the cornerstones of a life with first-hand access to the events of 20th century America. From the Yankees to Polaris, David Sahud's autobiography gives an account of a life not afraid to chase down access to the big events.


New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/14/2013 -- David Sahud was a chemist and businessman who worked behind the scenes on several of America's military and industrial achievements. He founded or ran a number of companies in the chemical engineering industry. His posthumous autobiography, "From Self-Proclaimed Nerd, to Accomplished Executive, to Befuddled Snowbird", is now available and tells the story of an engineer and businessman who had feet planted firmly in American business during the late 20th Century and who retired to life as a snowbird in 2005.

His autobiography is available at Amazon in both paperback and Kindle edition, located at: http://www.amazon.com/Self-Proclaimed-Accomplished-Executive-Befuddled-Snowbird/dp/1481016601

A man who enjoyed writing, the autobiography was left in the form of a manuscript of stories and anecdotes drawn from every period of his life. His daughter, Julie and her family, took the time to lovingly proof the manuscript, in order for it to meet the high standard of perfection which his stories and memory deserve.

If growing up Jewish in New York City during the depression and World War II was a catalyst which fomented many a young man's sense of humor and wit, then doing it with an Arab sounding last name double-dosed David Sahud's humor center. His writing conveys a tough spirit and determination to succeed in both solving problems and in finding the best in other people. One portion of the autobiography which aptly displays Sahud's toughness and humor is his description of an encounter with FBI agents at an airport security checkpoint shortly after 9/11 who were suspicious of his last name and family background.
