What do basketball legend Wilt "The Stilt" Chamberlain, the Queen Mother of England, actor Al Pacino, writer Kurt Vonnegut, blues great B.B. King and Lady Bird Johnson have in common?

These famous people are just a few of the colorful personalities found inside the pages of "Counting Crows: Stories of Love, Laughter and Loss." Ever walk down the aisle at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas holding onto the arm of an Elvis impersonator? The author has and describes in detail what happened during his hilarious marriage ceremony. You will also get to meet a group of courageous fathers who, like the author, have raised children with special needs. And then there are the long, painful steps the writer takes following the death of his wife, and then just two years later, the tragic death of his 18-year-old son, Jed. It's a journey of deep sorrow, fresh discoveries and renewed hope, making "Counting Crows" a reading experience not to be missed.
