I was a newspaperman in Indianapolis more than 30 years before I walked away from it in October 2000 to find new challenges. I also collect WWII militaria and tour North America on a BMW motorcycle, writing the occasional story for motorcycle magazines.

I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was: Ho&hellip von Barbara Sher

I bought this book in hardcover in 1995 and stopped reading after 2 chapters because I realized that if I kept reading I was going to have to change my life. I also realized I wasn't ready. If you approach this book conscientiously and use it as a tool, you truly can do anything you want with your life. That's a simultaneously scary and liberating thought. So, if you've just been "taking what they're giving 'cause you're working for a living," buy this book and get ready to be empowered.

He's currently roving the U.S. on a yellow Triumph Tiger, writing his impressions for MOTORCYCLIST magazine… Mehr dazu
Old Man and the Sea von Ernest Hemingway
Old Man and the Sea von Ernest Hemingway
The thing that impresses me about Hemingway most is that he knew what he wrote about and, therefore, wrote with such confidence and authority as to dispel all doubt about the authenticity of his characters and what they did and what they thought and said. This book is an easy quick read and a good introduction to Hemingway. But don't stop there. Go back and read it again and notice how rich the detail is and how much you missed the first time through.
