According to the book description of Louis Gervasio’s book, Not In My Memo Book, “is a compilation of over 50 humorous short stories about the New York City Police from 1956 through 1978. It includes a few about the NY State Police prior to 1956. The title evolves from the memo books the New York City Police were mandated to carry to enter their assignments and any incidents. Many police actions involved "unorthodox methods" used by police officers when dealing with the public, boredom, the elements or merely because of their sense of humor.

Also, as you read on you will find yourself walking side by side with the cop on beat, hopefully getting to know their lighter side. It has been said on many occasions that a cop has a front row seat to the greatest show on earth. The main theme is humor - let the news media talk about the serious issues.”
