"Our seasons lasted only four months, but the memories will last lifetimes."

Four Months...And A Lifetime is the touching true story of a father who coached his son's basketball team from kindergarten through eighth grade, a remarkable nine-year journey with the same boys.

Their final march to the eighth-grade season Championship is interspersed with the author's own journey of falling in love with basketball in early-seventies New York, filled with anecdotes of Dr. J, sneaking into Duke's Cameron Indoor Stadium, and playing pickup in Larry Bird's home state of Indiana.

Four Months... And A Lifetime is not only a love story about a father and his son, but of a coach who strived to teach his team the greatest game of basketball and, hopefully, a few life lessons along the way.

Touching. Honest. True.

About the Author

Chris Meyer currently operates a few tech companies. Most recently, he built, the world’s largest exercise and rehab platform for people just starting out or recovering from an injury.

Prior to his career in the tech industry, he wrote, directed, and produced a low-budget film called Black is White. The feature length race relations drama was written up in Variety as the film to watch
from the Independent Feature Film Market in New York City. It was one of twelve international films chosen for the Rome Film Festival. When the film wasn’t chosen for Sundance, Chris loaded up his car and moved to Hollywood to become a screenwriter. He made a living as a production assistant working for Herb Ritts, the premier fashion photographer of his time, and on various studio lots.

Chris grew up in Pleasantville, New York. He has a Juris Doctorate and Master’s in environmental law (Magna Cum Laude) from Vermont Law School and a BA in politics and history from Brandeis University. He has been a licensed New York State attorney for over twenty-eight years.

He now lives in Northern California with his wife of twenty years and their three sons. You will, most likely, find him on a field, or in a gym, coaching one of his sons’ teams. And, like his Opa before him, Chris simply believes in family above all.
