Publisher's Summary

Mike Johnson was a self-made man. He had worked his way up from the bottom to build a company he could be proud of. Winning was the name of the game, and Mike was good at it. A fierce competitor and hard-working businessman, he had high hopes and big dreams, and then...tragedy struck. He lost everything that was important to him: his family, his health, his business. What s next? His own life?

Franklin Robinson was an 83-year-old parts deliveryman in coveralls and an old straw hat. Driving an old 52 Ford pickup, his dog Socrates by his side, Franklin teaches Mike the true meaning of business and life. He explains, I'm just a parts driver. I deliver what people need when they need it, whether they realize it or not. Sometimes I deliver things people don t order and provide them with what they don t expect. I try to make a difference in people s lives.

Along the way Mike learns how attract, retain, and build the greatest asset in business - people!

A Simple Choice is a tale of grief, redemption, and hope, in which one man learns what really matters in life and business. From the most unlikely source, he learns the meaning of servant leadership.

    "Simple but not easy"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Simple Choice to be better than the print version?

    Yes. Mark has a great speaking voice and is well suited for this (his) book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Simple Choice?

    The ideas presented are basic but many of us never take time to read/listen and then take action. This will help you take action.


    Which character – as performed by Mark Matteson – was your favorite?

    Franklin


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Life isn't fair but you have a simple choice.


    Any additional comments?

    Mark's books are easy to read and listen to. The principals are basic but we many times forget them and rarely bring them to action. His books will change your life if you let them.
