One of the Rare Well-Written Self-Help Books
Malala Yousafzai asked us to remember that ‘One book, one pen…and one teacher can change the world.’
I believe The Front Row Factor has the opportunity to do that and I thank Jon Vroman for picking up the pen, writing, and teaching, in this transformative book.
I began reading it last week on a plane ride home from a conference and couldn’t put it down. I arrived to Midway Airport and sat in the food court finishing the last 20 pages.
I’ve read a lot of self-help books and have gleaned an idea or two from each, but find myself repeatedly frustrated by the mediocre writing. FINALLY, a well-written self-help book! What I found so special about this book is Jon’s ability to share dozens of profound stories while maintaining a quick tempo. He effectively intersperses “Front Row experiences” of those fighting life threatening illnesses, with sage relevant quotes, with his own personal narrative.
If you are looking for a blueprint for how to live a life of gratitude, perspective, and optimism, read this book.
I rarely write in superlatives. This, however, is an appropriate instance to do so. Front Row Factor is Superfantastic!
