Publisher's Summary

Unfazed by chaos and bad luck, Melvin Scott knows, "Some things a man must do himself. No matter how dumb that man is." His wife disagrees. In debt over his head, he learns that a penny will grow to more than $10,000,000 in 30 days if it doubles every day. He realizes that other things can grow that fast, too. Bacteria. Disease. Cures. Almost anything. Scott finds hope, and the adventures begin.

The book opens with Scott believing he has found a formula for becoming a millionaire, perhaps in less than 30 days. There is a problem. Scott lives in total chaos with his wife and young children in a house that is falling apart. This is all on top of leaving the military to start over again. What follows is a roller-coaster ride of misadventures - both serious and hilarious. Scott's search for riches comes to a head when he meets a professional treasure hunter from Key West who has located one of Blackbeard's sunken ships in the marsh outside of Savannah, Georgia. Racing to join the treasure hunter, Scott stops in his tracks when he encounters the one person in the world who could keep him from finding the treasure.

Confusing

The story was interesting and a little avant-garde. So many characters pop up and it's hard to keep Track of who's who. The story goes from extreme realism to total fantasy with no Smooth transition. Some of it actually being very disgusting, I could've skipped it if it wasn't a book club book.
