The author Adam Goldberg strains to understand his relationship
with his father. As he reviews their history during a phone
conversation with him, he experiences an epiphany that illumines
his vision of his dad. Rather than compounding his father's
failures, Adam's enlightened awareness enables him to recognize and
appreciate his father's attributes. This intuition multiplied and
led to inspired observations about truths to be found in common
life challenges and answers to such questions as, "What do you get
out of not enjoying your work?" And, "Does it make you happy to
think that way?" These expanded reflections, and an examination of
the circumstances and situations that provoked them, compelled the
writing of this book. The author tells us, "I quit a great job to
write this book." We should all be glad that he did. BEST DAY EVER
is a practical and inspirational life story that surveys signal
moments in life. Together, we consider responses guaranteed to
increase happiness and personal growth. Adam confirms, "We know the
truth when we see it." Interestingly, BEST DAY EVER was written for
both self and others. Adam's Pop, beloved step-father and "Worker
Guy" in the Work chapter, observed, "Adam, this book is for you."
So, together, the author and the reader grasp and gather nuggets to
live a happy, balanced and productive life. "It all starts with
