In the mid-1980s, I was a single father committed to raising my energetic young boys while managing my exploding career as a building contractor and a spiritual practitioner, using meditation to stay grounded. To help me process the often-overwhelming crash-course I was on as a parent, I began recording thoughts about my kids on a simple little voice recorder I kept in my truck. Those reflections — many of which were taped while stuck in Boston traffic between job sites — ultimately evolved into my tale of fatherhood.

I believe that most relationships can deepen and grow more meaningful when approached with a specific intent to build something great. This can happen between a child and his or her parent, a wife and husband, a brother and sister, or simply two friends. Every interaction is an opportunity.

“This book is a must-read for parents seeking a better relationship with their kids. ” – Sherry Ellis

“What I loved about this book was how genuine and honest the author was about his experiences with his sons. ” – Marci Giovannoni

“Rather amazing that this book has been on the market for over a year now and has not grown higher on the sales list. For those fortunate enough to have come across a copy this is a no nonsense, straightforward, easy to understand little treasure of a book about how to connect to your children in a meaningful and lasting manner. ”- Grady Harp

“He takes his own experiences with his two boys and makes the experience tangible and real and allows others to learn form his successes and from his failures.” – Dad of Divas
