If Bob is telling a story you are assured of two things: humor and wisdom.  A few years ago, I had Bob sit down and tell us his life’s story.  KGPT TV created an award- winning video from his ‘stories’.  From being adopted at 3 months old for a $2.75 fee, to creating the first Pizza Hut commercial, every story made you smile and taught.  As you read Bob’s ‘Old Philosopher’ you will surely smile and, gain wisdom!

This is great! I was intrigued to continue reading the book. I was a little surprised that the stories went from a competitive sports memory, to business to everyday living. However, the stories did come back full circle and reflect on what is important.

Putting three unrelated subjects together to get one result is very difficult. This book shows it can be done. You’re in for a treat that will give you lots to think about.
