This author is as genuine, kind, and loving of a person as you'll ever find. I've only just begun the book, but immediately it has captured my attention, imagination, and given me a greater appreciation for my children and the daily lessons I try to bestow into them. I will come back and update this review when the book's complete, but my early impressions are that this will be one I'll want to share with others and keep handy as a reference in the future.
In this fantastic book, Chip Franks harnessed his profound love for his children to gift all of us an effective, enjoyable, and comprehensive synthesis of key life lessons from the masters! After buying the Kindle version, I realized that I wanted the paperback so that I could annotate it for myself and for my eight year old son. (Why write my own version when I can piggyback on Chip's great work, and simply add the specific emphasis and additional thoughts that I want to share with my son?) I also plan to buy the audible version to reinforce these important lessons for me and to provide an easy introduction of them to my son.
Wow! Love this book. Its written as a guidebook from a father to his kids, but it is advice anyone can use at any age. Like the title says, it has 101 very specific, well-written pieces of WISDOM that you can read in about 5 minutes. (e.g. and some of my favorites: 39. Don't Let Money Be a Bully in Your Life, 77. Have a Regular Check-In with Yourself). But what makes this book even better, is that there are very specific suggested actions TO DO for each piece of advice. My advice to you: 1. Get this Book, 2. Read "Lesson 1. Learn the Five Big Steps", 3. Scan the rest of the table of contents and read anything that calls to you. Excellent book -I'm buying hard copies as gifts for friends and family.
I cried when I started reading this book. It has so many lessons that I would love to pass on to my children, that I only just recently began to learn myself. What a gift, to be able to eloquently convey all the things I wish I had known three decades ago. After reading several chapters, I also realized what a great graduation gift it would be and ordered several more. No matter if you have young or old kids, or are just starting out, these life lessons will short track your realization of what really is important.
Highly recommend this one! You can feel the kind, sincere heart behind every word and the Love he has for his children and family. Lessons and advice that will make anyone motivated to be a better person/parent and that you will want to refer back to again and again. A piece that will be treasured within my family and their families to come!
Chip Franks has knocked it out of the Park, with this well written book. It’s clear he is well knowledged in life and the way he explains this to his children is just beautiful. I know his children’s are proud, and will one day pass it along to their children. What a great family treasure to have and share
Love the life you have while you create and co-create the life of your dreams! Truly a masterpiece from Chip Franks with foreword by Hal Elrod. Priceless inspiration and insight that transforms lives! Karen Briscoe, author and podcast host 5 Minute Success

I look forward to reading it each day and it has given me some really great, effective, and easy to implement tools and strategies for several areas of my life. This book has made a difference in my life. A great resource for anyone.
