Author Biography

In 2007 the author was the financial controller for the largest Bahamian exporter while living on both Grand Cayman and Grand Bahama Islands. This followed years in the automotive manufacturing industry as well as a decade of buying and selling new and used books, comic books, magazines, baseball cards and other products…as well as many other jobs. Faced with a choice of what to do for the future…stay with island life or move on…a decision was made to become an author with the intent to create products designed for big budget movies.

The first product conceived was actually UnManifest Destiny but the author knew that something different had to be the first product. Painless and the Less Trilogy (Blindless, Timeless) were born.

Painless was market tested and more products were created as well as the Corporation X Business Plan. Along the way The Byzantine Pineapple developed tying together a lifetime of concepts and ideas into an actual plan to perform global social good by presenting Social, Economic, Legal, and Political reforms that citizens of countries can understand and buy off on.

The author currently lives with a brother in Jacksonville, FL, where they take care of their 94 year old mother while creating products and building Corporation X. More information can be found on the poje.biz website

    Book Review

Reviewed by Rabia Tanveer for Readers' Favorite

The Byzantine Pineapple: Part 1 with Corporation X by Bill Poje is a narrative on how the current socioeconomic conditions of the USA are deteriorating and how these can be improved. The book raises some very courageous questions and, after asking them, the author proposes some very valid answers and solutions. Mr. Poje is of the opinion that every citizen should be treated equally, especially in regards to medical facilities and housing. He is not just making claims; he refers to the Federal Budget of 2013 and draws conclusions as to what he proposes is beneficial for people across the board. While the rich get richer and the poor become poorer, the author specifically attacks this and asks the government to take a step back, look at the bigger picture and try to tackle the issue in the best possible way. Flat tax rate and transparency as to where the tax money goes are also addressed very eloquently. In the second half, the author talks about how his works (some of which I have read) can be made into motion pictures and can be financially lucrative for investors. He lists the pros, gives solid data and allows the reader to think about it.

What I really enjoyed about this book is how the author wasn’t making any predictions in the first half of the book. He was presenting an idea based on his research and allowing the reader to have some food for thought. His ideas are very interesting and if they are worked upon, they can become a very good first step for equal treatment in the country. What really drew me in was how hopeful and clear the message was. The author is literally inviting the reader in and helping them to draw their own conclusions, allowing them to have their own thoughts and make their own decisions. The simple yet powerful word choice is an essential part of the book; it made the reading experience even better. All in all, this is a book for readers who would like to think ahead, but with sound reasoning. A good approach that can be beneficial for the masses, if applied.
