What a read!  Beignets and chicory coffee, the intimacy of the French Quarter, and that wonderful toe-tapping traditional jazz.  Al would have said, "you’ve got to read this book!"

A fantastic book about self discovery amidst the chaos of corporate and family life. Yawdy Rum’s lessons for finding balance, setting priorities, and creating positive change in your life were music to my ears.

Wow, what a trip!  The tension throughout, the promise of revelation, the jazz history, the delights of the French Quarter.  I’m hooked.
