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“Words have meaning” and require the skill and historical reference to forge past the progressive takeover of our collective minds and spirit.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of “Boys of Brooklyn”, Sal shares meaningful “lessons learned” stories via a necessary nostalgia, while providing historical reference, courage, and wisdom for all generations.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.

In this, the 2nd installment of “Sal’s Book Reviews”, Sal recounts Rutherfurd’s points that the political history of New York- even down to early settlers in then “New Amsterdam”, has always been a hotbed for corruption- just as much as innovation. This book takes the reader on an EPIC journey through the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the explosion of immigration through Ellis Island, the hardships of the Great Depression, the Wall Street Stock Market Crash, WW1 and WW2, right up to 9/11. Sal says it was like a “fact check for his memory- while filling in the blanks vacated by time.”
Sal hilariously reminisces to his High School American History Class teacher’s “boring” lectures… but looking at today’s Electoral College, Sal realizes that Old Man Walbaum may have had a point!
Introducing the first of “Sal’s Book Reviews”! Sal references points from “The Great Bridge” that the “The Boys of Brooklyn” have related to in their journey of life. See how unknowingly, The Brooklyn natives joined together in building what would become an indelible triumph for American engineering: the (Great) Brooklyn Bridge.
