Editorial Reviews

Andrea Sisco

"I enjoyed the way Bolton thinks about everyday things that we all experience. And I embrace that someone will write a humor book about me---a woman of a certain age...
The final chapters are really thought provoking and worth the read. I loved "On Purpose" (you have to read it, I'm not telling) and "Without You" (think Clarence from It's A Wonderful Life and then read the chapter, ponder and live it).

...Bolton gives us things to think and laugh about, and who doesn't need that!"
