About Sandi's Book

Slightly Above Average

Memoirs of a Successful Village Idiot

Dive into the extraordinary tales of Sandi Marx, where a soupçon of ineptitude, mixed academic endeavors, and a candid willingness to expose flaws paint the canvas of a truly successful and fulfilling life. In her humble yet hilarious memoir, aptly titled for its modesty, Sandi takes you on a journey through the exploits of someone who sees themselves as nothing more than slightly above average.

In Slightly Above Average, Sandi reveals the secret to her good fortune: a good sense of humor. Luck, timing, and this singular life skill have propelled her through two major earthquakes, an accidental teenage mugging, white-water rafting escapades, near misses with con men, a live robbery, a fateful car accident, and so much more.

While Sandi may not claim to be a purveyor of conventional life skills, her narrative suggests that being slightly above average might just be the unexpected ticket to a well-lived life. Prepare for laughter, astonishment, and a newfound appreciation for the quirks that make life truly extraordinary.
