Profoundly Disconnected: A True Confession from Mike Rowe (PAPERBACK EDITION) Mike Rowe is the creator and host of Dirty Jobs, though he prefers to be referred to as a "Perpetual Apprentice." In this capacity, he has traveled around the country the last ten years, disrupting countless work sites, and perfecting the art of getting in the way. A former opera singer, Rowe began his career in television hawking dubious merchandise on a cable shopping channel and slowly worked his way up to the sewer. Today, he spends most of his time talking about thousands of great jobs that no one seems to want and challenging the persistent belief that a four-year degree is the best path for the most people. He's the CEO of the mikeroweWORKS Foundation, and by all accounts, a very nice guy. This is his first book. He swears the next one will be longer. A note from Mike Rowe “Before any money changes hands, and in the spirit of full disclosure, I wish to make a few things unmistakably clear about my book, Profoundly Disconnected. First and foremost, it ain't Moby Dick. In fact, the actual manuscript is only one page. As pages go, this one is very, very solid, but it is what it is, and I feel compelled to manage expectations at the outset. Toward that end, it's probably best to evaluate this book as something more than another hopeful bestseller from another B-list celebrity. This is a fundraiser. All the proceeds go to the mikeroweWORKS Foundation and will help provide scholarships to people getting trained for skilled jobs that actually exist.”
