No Easy Answers: A Book of Life-Changing Questions
No Easy Answers is a book of questions that changed my life and guided me through recovery, redemption, and reinvention.
What if a self-help book didn't claim to have all the answers? What if instead, it gave you questions to guide you on your own path? What if instead, it gave you the story of someone who helped himself through the process of asking questions?
No Easy Answers is an autobiographical self-help book based on my experiences overcoming depression, divorce, bankruptcy, and alcoholism.
During my recovery, my redemption, and my re-invention, I had to answer a lot of questions. No Easy Answers contains those questions, my story, and more. It tells how I answered those questions, and how I still use them today to guide me through life, questions like:
- "How did I get here?"
- "What am I afraid of?"
- "Who am I to judge?"
No Easy Answers is the culmination of many years of reading, studying, and learning "the hard way." Unlike other self-help books, you won't get any "laws" or "rules" or "secrets." What you will get are thought-provoking questions intended to help you find your own answers. No matter where you are in life, no matter what you're going through or where you want to be, I know you'll find something in No Easy Answers to inspire you.

Risks and challenges
The main risks and challenges that come with completing this project are in the distribution process, i.e. getting the books to my backers after the campaign is finished and before my August deadline. How long will the copyediting take? When will I be able to ship the physical books to my backers?
To address these concerns, I have a dedicated support representative at createspace.com who's already helped me create the budget for this project and given me a time frame for publishing and distribution. I'll be sending the manuscript for copyediting before the end of this Kickstarter campaign, so once it's funded, I can start ordering copies of the book to autograph and ship to my backers. I've also planed to do the bulk of this during the beginning of the summer, when my professional workload is typically the lightest. Feel free to contact me with any other questions or concerns you may have before backing this project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
