Born, raised and still living in Southern California, United States of America.
I don’t know if I would consider myself to be another typical high school dropout, but in the 11th grade I took and passed a high school equivalency test that allowed me to leave school one year early. From then on it was the school of hard knocks and when I finally figured out this wasn’t going to work, became a student of life.
I have over 35 years of experience building, remodeling and repairing apartments, condominiums, residential homes and commercial as well as industrial properties.
My interests are history, psychology, business, construction, gardening and thoroughly enjoy sharing the things I’ve learned with anyone willing to listen. There is nothing better than spending time with friends and family having a wonderful meal, a few beers and intelligent conversation.

I decided to take a try on this book because it sounded interesting. I do suggest the writer pick up a grammar and/or punctuation book to learn how to use commas, because he uses too many of them, and usually in the wrong places.
However, that doesn't seriously detract from what he's trying to accomplish.
This is basically a list of things you can do to improve your life. What I like about it is the writer talks to you in a very folksy, friendly way; this is not some hot-shot guru who promises all sorts of things and doesn't deliver anything.
Some of these 100 things are obvious, but sometimes we need to read this stuff again and again, just so it can get etched into our brains. (I know that's true for me. :-)) He also sprinkles in some positive, interesting quotes from well-known (and not as well known) people throughout history, like John Kennedy, for example.
I *did* pick up a few things from this book, because I like the writer's down-to-earth style and sensibilities. It's now a part of my small self-help ebook collection.
