The Chronicles of Martin is about living life to its fullest; rising to the summits and falling to the bottom; faith and its power to heal; and finding a new way to live. There are three stand-alone parts of the book: 1) Martin's memoirs, covering his upbringing in East Texas; his university years at Texas A&M and the University of Colorado; ascent into the world of oil, money and politics; and ultimately his calamitous fall and recovery through faith. 2) Martin's life as an alcoholic and his recovery. And, 3) A collection of thought provoking essays Martin has written during his 20 years of sobriety. Martin's essays delve deeply into the subject of faith, creation and eternal life. This book is a must read for you if you've had to face some of life's most challenging problems, if you have ever questioned your faith, or if you have ever had to rebuild your way. It is not a how-to book. The Chronicles of Martin is a book of encouragement that traces how God worked in the life of a man. 


Martin Adams has spent most of his career being what he calls “a corporate midwife.” The meaning of the euphemism is clear…deliver the business. Whether it is re-packaging existing businesses, strengthening weak businesses, or playing into a market need, Martin has been a professional builder of business. Some have called him a “rainmaker,” referring to Martin’s ability to promulgate new business in torrents like rainfall. Educated as a chemical engineer at Texas A&M University and the University of Colorado, Martin used his strong analytic skills and experiences at the Humble Oil & Refining Co. (Exxon Mobil) to become fully adroit with business and management skills. He was born in the East Texas piney woods, educated in Aggieland, forged in the Houston oil game and tempered on Wall Street investing. Felled by addiction to the bottle, rallied in the Nation’s Capitol, Martin found peace through faith and recreated his life. Today, he lives with his wife in College Station, TX.
