because life happens

Heroes, Mentors, and Friends: a book review

Who inspires you?

You may come up with one or two people, but you might be surprised by how many people truly inspire you. Inspiration comes in many forms and by many names. You may call these people your heroes or mentors; sometimes you call them friends.

Now, ask yourself, who do you inspire?

Whether you think you do or not, you probably have or will inspire at least one person during your life. Chances are you will inspire more than you will ever know.

Stories that will make you smile, nod in agreement, and have a little faith. Heroes, Mentors, and Friends by John Dowd, Jr. is a different kind of self-help book.

If you’re like my mom, you like the typical self-help book that reads more like a textbook. No stories, just guidance. But if you’re anything like me, you will take to this book like a fish to water and get so much more out of it than any old textbook-style writing could ever give you.

Heroes Mentors and Friends” is a 160 page self help book on Balboa Press a division of Hayhouse, the #1 self help publisher in the world. It’s a quick read, fun and uplifting. Author John Dowd Jr is a 25 year radio personality and program director. This book is part memoir, part self help and spirituality. Theme is mainly new age and positive thinking with a few religious quotes.

John Dowd, Jr. tells stories from his life; stories that, on the surface, seem down on their luck, but upon further reading you find that everything truly does happen for a reason. Patience and doing the right thing and a little bit of faith will get you to your goals in life – well, and hard work, cause life is all about participation.
