Today, I'm excited to announce the publication of a book I wrote about my father's life. When I began writing, I thought it would be something for my kids to have to help them remember the lessons of their grandfather. But the further I got, the more I began to think that these lessons are universal and could resonate with a much larger audience. It never occurred to me to write a book about my father, but the man led an extraordinary life and I'm excited to share his story. I've included the first chapter for you below. The full book is available here. All profits from the sale of the book go to support DreamBikes – a nonprofit bike shop staffed by members of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Madison and Milwaukee. I hope you like the read.
