I dedicate this book to all those kids who are

unique in thought, spirit, and personality.

The key to your success and personal greatness

is the wisdom and conviction

of knowing who you are . . . and holding the course.

To my three children—

Morgen, Chelsae, and Spencer . . .

You hold the course every day!

I learn from you.
