More About Chuck Meyer & Charles Meyer
During his life Chuck Meyer gave 200-300 speaking engagements a year on the hard topic of death and dying and managed to have audiences rolling in the aisles. A graduate of Earlham College, Union Theological Seminary, and the University of Bridgeport, he got his practical education working in a New York prison and a Texas jail. He was Vice President of Operations and chaplain at St. David's Medical Center in Austin Texas, he is the author of 10 books, including murder mysteries, humor, and titles on death and grieving. When he married Debi Ludeman, daughter Michal (age 6) came along as a part of the package. She inspired him to write. Unfortunately, this gifted author died in a tragic car accident in 2000.

A Great Loss! Nov 18, 2000
Another marvelous work from Mr. Meyer. Unfortunately there may be no further publications from this gifted lecturer, author and spiritual leader. Chuck Meyer died in a traffic accident on November 13,2000. I had the opportunity to hear Chuck lecture on many occasions and found him to be always inspiring, as well as personable and humorous. Hopefully his wonderful work and writings will continue to live on as a testimony to this man's spirit.
A great model of parent-adolescent communication! Jun 23, 1999
This is a book I have given to my three children (ages 16, 18, and 21)along with the wish that I had the wisdom and courage to write and speak so forthrightly with them about issues and challenges that face them and us as a family. Chuck Meyer tackles the tough topics like sex and alcohol in a way that guides and empowers his readers--and, of course, catches their interest, but he also writes engagingly about friendships and career choices and parents. As the mother of two daughters, I found his words to his daughter about the difficult dance that daughters and mothers do so they can separate from one another beautiful--and helpful.
Don't wait for a graduation-gift opportunity. This is a book of comfort, wisdom, humor, and help for parents and teenagers.
