Have I got a story for you. A friend of mine has written the most unusual book you will read this year--or will read maybe ever. It's really more of an adventure than a book. Let me explain.
I'm guessing that at some point when you were growing up, there was some point in time when you were pretty down. It was then that your mom probably said something like: "No matter how bad you feel right now, someone's had it worse." At other times when you felt on top of the world, someone might have warned you: "No matter how well you do, someone else has done it better."
We've all heard that sort of thing. Here's the really unusual part: What if the highest highs and the lowest lows actually happened to the same person? My friend, Bill Bartmann, is living that life and its a great story. Get this:
• As a teenager, he was a homeless gang member, eating out of dumpsters.
• Later, his best job was working at a pig slaughterhouse.
• He was an alcoholic at age 18, and became a paraplegic after falling down stairs drunk
• Yet he walked out of the hospital...
• Got married (and stayed married)
• And put himself through college... and law school.
• And became an entrepreneur in the oil patch, a millionaire and then lost it all
• And with about 2 cents started a new business ...
• And Bill became a billionaire and entrepreneur of the year
• Then the Feds (nice job John Ashcroft) moved in on him for all the wrong reasons, destroyed his company and he lost it all in 72 hours and faced 600 years of jail ...
• But he refused to plea bargain and was found not guilty....
• And now he's on the road to getting it all back.
If you've ever wished that fiction thrillers were more true, and that true stories were more interesting, then you're gonna love this book; "Bouncing Back" by Bill Bartmann.
Full Disclosure: I don't make a single penny if you buy this book. I just want you to know about Bill's amazing book for three reasons:
1. It's just a fascinating story to read and to realize that it all happened to a real person who's alive today; and
2. It's full of important principles about failure and success, betrayal and honor, despair and resolve.
3. I couldn't put it down.
You know I get asked to blurb books all the time. Among authors its almost a tribal requirement to blurb other's books. But I rarely do it and only when I really like the book and I really like the author and I think you guys will benefit from it in some immediate way. I've blurbed Happy for No Reason by Marci Shimoff, 4-Hr Workweek by Tim Ferriss and now this one.
You can get the eBook at Amazon. "Bouncing Back". It's only $5.95 on Kindle. Here's a link to the book or go to Amazon.com and type in "Bouncing Back by Bill Bartmann".
I can tell you one thing for sure: If you start reading this book, you will not be able to resist telling others about it. It's one hell of a story.
