If you haven’t read my friend, Rich London’s book, A Handbook for Life: A Practical Guide To Success And Happiness, I encourage you to read and share it. The book oozes with inspirational and thought provoking exercises to lead you to an answer and a goal. Part workbook and part manual, London provokes thinking but he also asks us to delve deep down to discover what it is we want to accomplish from our lives. The book encompasses a wide range of life issues both personal and professional.

 Richard London is a survivor and an inspiring person. This being Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month, he is someone to know. Faced with prostate cancer, nine surgeries following an automobile accident, and Parkinson’s disease, Richard London shares his shining spirit and a beaming can do attitude. An accomplished business man, a commercial pilot, and a third degree black belt, Richard London has assembled a no-nonsense meaty collection of tools to assist you in setting priorities and putting your life in perspective.
