Dr. Sal Martingano
AUTHOR, EDUCATOR, ITALIAN FROM BROOKLYN…
“It is my mission to insure that our present and future generations never lose sight of what it means to be free. Words have meaning; redefining words for personal gain is the basis of tyranny, and we MUST resist this temptation to maintain our freedom.”
MORE ABOUT THE AUTHOR
“Words have meaning” and require the skill and historical reference to forge past the progressive takeover of our collective minds and spirit. As the author of “Boys of Brooklyn”, Sal shares meaningful “lessons learned” stories via a necessary nostalgia, while providing historical reference, courage, and wisdom for all generations.
Life has a way of getting your attention, even when reality is not in sync with one’s dreams… but when the student is ready, the teacher appears. From his beginnings in engineering, to teaching industrial arts in New York City, this Baby Boomer overcame fear of the unknown to not only succeed personally, but empowered others to do so as well.
The Brooklyn Boy
Growing up in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn was a magical experience. It was indeed “A Time When Life Never Sucked”. One can fail without ridicule and develop educational and economic successes based on self-reliance and strong family bonds, all while experiencing life as it was meant to be; raw, exciting, and filled with adventure.
Critical Acclaim for The Boys of Brooklyn: A Time When Life Never Sucked
Our story begins in the humble setting of the Bensonhurst neighborhood in Brooklyn, one of the five boroughs of New York City. It was a place that was not too different from the many other small communities around the country at that time. However, it became the one place that history will remember because of the “Boys of Brooklyn.” This is our story.
Regarding – The Declaration of Dependence
Jack M. Bourla, DC – Says:
“If you are a status quo type person, you may want to stay away from Dr. Martingano’s book, The Declaration of Dependence. Dr. Martingano has looked at the history of the United States and its current state of affairs and provided thought-provoking ideas on where we may have gone wrong. Unlike many others, however, he has also suggested solutions to his ideas and supported them with references throughout his book for the interested reader.
This is not a read for the timid. He challenges many of the values that Americans hold as true today and he suggests that our government is intentionally and incrementally taking away our freedoms and circumventing the Constitution. Dr. Martingano leaves no or very few stones unturned with respect to today’s media and government in a way that empowers the average American in making better political decisions to ensure that we retain our freedoms.”
“This book is a straight forward, strategic message about how America has devolved, but also how to restore America by shoring up its time proven foundations.”
Dr. Sal Martingano’s book is a refreshing reminder of the importance of our constitution and an unfortunate showcase of how far we as a nation have drifted from its original intent. He holds nothing back in critiquing the missteps of our leaders, our media and even the complacency of American citizens that have led us deeper into progressive ideals that are threatening to undermine the liberties that made us great. I recommend this book for anyone interested in making sure America doesn’t fall into the socialist trap and progressive ideals that are wreaking havoc on much of Europe.

Baby Boomers were much like the Generation-X of the 1960s and 1970s. Caught between the Hippie Counterculture, the Vietnam War, higher education, and everything in between… Sal reflects on the influence that politics at the time has continued into today’s society, and all the insights learned along the way. Not to mention some pretty darn good music!
Other than Sal and Tony Bennett both hailing from the boroughs of New York (Brooklyn vs. Queens – respectively) it turns out there are a ton of similarities between “Just Getting Started” and “Boys of Brooklyn”- right down to the fact that both Sal and Tony’s family are descended from Calabria, Italy… just add in a little Hollywood “Who’s Who” list of characters (and well respected civil rights leaders) for Tony and you’ll agree with Sal when he says that Tony “gives insight, not only to himself and New York- but to the contribution to humanity itself”.
Sal’s childhood neighborhood of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn was home to the largest population of Italians in the Five Boroughs. In this post, Sal discusses everything from tangling with bullies from the Genovese crime family, to the struggles that many families from many different backgrounds had coming out of the Great Depression, and everything in between. One thing is for sure though- every one of the “Boys” of Brooklyn came home for dinner when the streetlights came on- especially Sal… who’s Mother had a powerful whistle the whole neighborhood could hear.
