Everyone Should Read This Book Mar 8, 2003
Bob takes you on his journey from beginning to end, describing his fears and triumphs along the way. It is an honest, thought-provoking, and enjoyable read. There is much to be learned by reading Bob's story. It made me think, and continues to make me think, about my own life.
It's refreshing to hear someone openly share about the role of their faith in their life, and in their recovery.
Rock on, Bob!
Bob Benson's book is thought provoking... Jan 10, 2003
Bob Benson's book 100 MPH With My Hair on Fire was a quick and enjoyable read,yet very thought provoking. The book is a narrative discussion about how his drive to succeed in the business world often came at the expense of his health and time with family. A health crisis forces him to reflect on his lifestyle,priorities and spirituality. The story he tells should strike a cord with many of us. He is the typical white collar executive striving for the "good life." Sound familiar? Mr. Benson's style is brutally honest and heartfelt. The book uses humor and a quick wit to temper the very serious topic of facing your mortality at a young age. He beat the odds and learned some valuable life lessons. As a Christian and a health professional, I found it refreshing to see him bravely discuss the role his religious beliefs played in facing and dealing with his health crisis. Mr.Benson took a tough,sensitive topic and made it real. This book will appeal to both men and women. It is a "must read" for the Type A persononality in your life!
Great book if you're a Type "A" Jan 8, 2003
Engaging narrative and thoughts of a 36 year old corporate executive and family man who survived a heart attack caused by his lifestyle. It hits home as he describes how, during treatment, his faith and family life evolve to the proper perspective.
Bob was in good health with no family history of heart problems. He dismissed conventional wisdoms about stress and healthy eating - as we all do. The book is a great reminder to take work a bit less seriously and pay better attention to God and his blessings.
