About the Book

It’s a father's last road trip with his daughter to college...and only a few hours to say everything that matters. He tells stories from his past, stories filled with love, wisdom, and humor.  But above all, filled with the truth he hopes will prepare her for her lifetime journey. 


During the trip the two discuss


  • ​​Choosing Friends    

  • ​​​Living a Good Life   

  • Minding Your Mind   

  • Getting Along With People

  • Making Life Easier

  • ​​​Staying Healthy and Happy 

  • Getting Things Done 

  • Sustaining a Marriage and Family


 He shares the good and the bad, what he learned and what he has yet to learn, what worked and what didn’t. 


The author invites you to share the journey - to ponder how life works, and how to make it work for you.  It is about finding and telling the Good Story.


With humor, originality and unexpected insight the author offers practical wisdom that not only rings true, but also delights.
