My 22-year-old son Brady's take on Daniel Pink's latest book, The Adventures of Johnny Bunko:
I thought Johnny Bunko was fantastic, it was a very relevant kind of motivation for young adults today. The art style and the characters are a fantastic way to get a message across that kids normally wouldn't even be receptive to. It almost works as kind of a gateway to this kind of thinking, and makes me want to read more of these kinds of books. I wish I had something like this before I started college to put me in the right mindset for the real world. I'm keeping this book and these lessons on hand for a long time as a reminder of what I really want to get out of life.
Looking forward to Memorial Day weekend. Do you think we can squeeze in Indiana Jones?
(A scan of his college tuition bill was attached.)
I sent Brady's review to Mr. Pink, and he responded:
Thanks for this. You (and he) made my day. Brady has kept me in the writing business for at least a few more weeks!
Pretty cool, I thought.
Looking for a great graduation gift this spring?
I have to say that Brady is a pretty cool kid. He's the one that draws the skunks for my blog's heading, did the art work of Machines Are the Easy Part, and still is willing to have the occasional lunch or dinner with his old man. Check the latest custom art work:
A sacred cow.
A gardening skunk
And of course the rollerblading skunk in the header of the blog (at least today).
It's wonderful to have children of whom one can be proud, and LWW and I are four for four.
The grandsons look promising as well.
