In this insightful and oftentimes hilarious memoir, Bruce MacMullan takes us on a most entertaining journey through time and place. Starting with his first two decades in Minnesota, Bruce manages to recklessly dispose of the first seven of his allocated nine cat lives before he even gets out of college. From a homemade hydroplane incident you won’t believe to almost losing his head in a summer factory job, we witness Bruce continuously surviving the almost unimaginable.
You may not be able to fathom what transpires when a novice freshwater sailor is forced to navigate a raging Atlantic storm or what strange chain of events unravel by simply trying to supercharge a golf ball in a microwave, but The Inexplicable Scot will soon clue you in.
Zero to Sixty does a yeoman’s job in defining the geriatric predicament that we’re either already in or will be sooner than we think. At some point, we all begin to take a closer look in that rearview mirror. Bruce simply challenges us to, “Give life its due respect and take it all in with as many laughs as possible…while it is still a laughing matter.”

What Our Readers Are Saying…
“Going against a trite ‘stop-and-smell-the-roses philosophy, MacMullan provides a refreshing reflection on lifelong gratitude. The harrowing and hilarious misadventures create the essence of the man behind the madness and they encourage readers to appreciate their own ill-conceived yet fateful actions. This book could also easily be subtitled: Close Encounters of the Absurd Kind.”
—Rosalie Stromme, Yoga Instructor and Past President of the Red Rocks Book Club
“Over the years, I’ve enjoyed the gentle, self-deprecatory, laugh-out-loud humor of Midwestern authors, Bill Bryson and Garrison Keillor. Now another Midwesterner has joined that list— Bruce MacMullan. Read, laugh, enjoy and think, ‘There, but for the grace of God, go I.’”
—Tim Engels, MA, author of InnerChanging and FUNdamental Golfs
“A fun read where first-time author, MacMullan, smoothly travels you down memory lane with poignant wisdom and humor.”
—Russel Frederick Ahrens, author of One Shoe and the Golden Medallion
