Presidents in the Crosshairs

Presidents in the Crosshairs

by David Ritchey

$18.95 plus s/h
Being President of the United States can be hazardous to on's health and longevity. Of the 44 presidents who have served this country, 4 have been shot and killed while in office - that's one in eleven. By way of comparison, of the 2,709,918 Americans who served in uniform in Vietnam, 47,424 were killed in combat - that's one in 57. These numbers suggest, then, that an individual is approximately five times more likely to be violently killed as President of the United States than as a member of the U.S. military serving in a war zone. Clearly, protection of the President has been a monumental challenge.

About the Author

David Ritchey's vocations have included: naval officer, businessman, fine art photographer, psychotherapist, researcher, and writer. His avocations have included: scuba diving, sailing, skiing, tennis, golf, gardening, woodworking, dogs, magic, bridge, and SCRABBLE.

After being educated in economics at Yale University, he served for five years as an officer in the U.S. Navy, including a year in Vietnam. Back in civilian life, he initially became a businessman, but shortly thereafter followed his true inclinations and became a fine art photographer.

While immersed in the art world, he became fascinated by the psychology/neurology of creativity, and returned to school to train as a psychotherapist. During his 15 years of clinical practice, specializing in hypnotherapy, he became especially interested in the psychodynamics of those clients who reported having had transpersonal ("metaphysical") experiences, and undertook a twelve-year project of researching and writing about such people, who he speaks of as "Anomalously Sensitive Persons."

Later, he became his daughter's business manager at her art gallery on Cape Cod, and spent a few years simultaneously in the worlds of both business and art.

Now "retired," he spends his time writing about those subjects that have been of special interest to him throughout his lifetime. Information about his books can be found at www.davidritchey-author.com.

He currently lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania with his golden retriever, Katherine. He has two grown children, Harper and Mac, and a grandson, Brendan.
