We've all heard several of our friends state with conviction those famous hollow words, I should write a book. As Bruce Layne reflected on his life, it occured to him that he had a lot to say to his kids and grandkids that would best be expressed in a book. These would'nt be passing words. They would be etched in print for his family and offspring to read over and over through the years. Laynes's story tells of overcoming the challenges of a family split-up, a disastrous first attempt at college, his efforts to revolutionize the insurance industry, his bringing business acumen to the often helter-skelter world of big-time boxing, his foray into state politics, and his latest major battle, against Parkinson's disease. Through it all, he's employed a gentle demenor and a firm resolve that is beguiling and intoxicating to observe. One of his friends said of Bruce, He's a velvet hammer. When you see what he's faced, and what he's overcome, you can't help but be inspired by his life.
