    INCREDIBLE and POWERFUL BOOK!!!!!

    Zoro's book, "The Big Gig" has been such an inspiration to me as a working musician (specifically, fellow drummer) living in Nashville, TN. The book asks, and answers virtually all the questions that I have been wondering about for years, and lays out very practical and methodical ways for success in the spiritual, vocational, and personal areas of life. It is such a great encouragement to me as well whenever I get down about my career in the tough and trying music industry. After reading just even a paragraph, I am inspired to make a difference in this world! I have already purchased this book for several people, and if you have not gotten your copy yet, then get it TODAY. You will NOT REGRET IT!!!!! God bless Zoro!!!

She hated the dreary, boring life there and longed for adventure. At the age of fourteen, she ran away. A few years later, she met Zaru and he became her boyfriend not long after. Fir as long as she could remember, she'd never gone anywhere without her trusty kunai.
