Following is a recent press release by one of the latest authors we helped to publish his first book.
What began as a suburban Chicago dad’s letters to his daughters has become a new roadmap for adults seeking perspective in challenging times. Your Name Here GUIDE TO LIFE began as a series of letters from author Michael Rosenbaum to his then-teenage daughters, but response from Baby Boomers has revealed a much broader audience of adults seeking life balance.
“I thought of the project as a collection of dadlore, lessons that dads would pass on to their children,” said Rosenbaum, a business consultant and former financial journalist. “When I showed the text to my friends, I expected comments on its relevance to their own kids. Instead, they said they thought the book was really written for them.
“The recession and rising joblessness have led many of my peers to reconsider their priorities and seek a different balance in their lives,” Rosenbaum added. “They said the book offers a strong template for that task.”
YNH GUIDE TO LIFE is the first inspirational/self-help book from Rosenbaum, whose prior works included business textbooks, a guide to corporate governance and a theatrical comedy. His story-laden text draws on experiences with cops, morticians, psychologists and others to deliver an enlightening, warm and humorous journey through the human condition.
“I’ve been collecting stories and insights for decades, scribbling them down on index cards, Post-it Notes and far too many cocktail napkins,” Rosenbaum explained. “Often, my notes included something I’d done that was stupid, but instructive. At other times, a friend would make an observation so clear and insightful that one simple sentence became a life-changing event.
“One of the biggest insights I’ve gained, and one I try to pass on in the book, is that we can learn important lessons from pretty much everyone, if we just pay attention,” he added.
Your Name Here GUIDE TO LIFE is the first in a series planned by Barosum Books, based on the wisdom of ordinary people. The first volume is available at Amazon.com with a list price of $12.99.
