“I’ll Fix my Head Before I’m Dead” by Dean Roberts was a very interesting and enlightening book that I read in one sitting. Hats off to the author for making such deep and profound observations about a wide range of things, and presenting in a highly readable and engaging manner. Different from many books that I’ve read, and I really enjoyed it! A great “coffee-table” type book. (5 stars) Kaylee Stevens; GoodReads,LibrarythingShelfari, Barnes Noble

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book… was it some sort of ‘self-help’ book?  A novel? Advice on living? Actually it was none of those things, yet in a way its all of them… along with reflections and lessons the author has learned and imparts in a very congenial and readable manner. Good info on the importance of nutrition and the dangers of the chemicals (pages 79-84). Great stuff. Recommend. (4 stars) Jenna Brewster;GoodReadsLibrarythingShelfari, Barnes & Noble

I read this book cover to cover in less than an hour. It was very interesting and much different from most books that I read. It is presented as a sort of “journal entries” that span over time and different cities as the author Dean Roberts visited different trade shows. Some parts where funny, others insightful, some a bit tongue-in-cheek, and its just overall a good, handy book to have around. Lots of good advice, especially on the foods and exercise. Suitable for all ages. (4 stars) Sam Ryan; GoodReadsLibrarything,Shelfari, Barnes & Noble

What I like about this book is that it isn’t preachy, and the author does not come across as some arrogant know-it-all that so many of these types of books seem to attract. Instead he merely modestly reflects on his life in a profound, almost poetic way that broadens our perspectives and makes us think. I like how the short chapters (the entries) almost at time read more like free-verse poetry, lyrical and beautiful. But also deep and makes somegood points on life in general. (4.5 stars) Stacy Decker; GoodReadsLibrarything,Shelfari, Barnes & Noble

First, I have to say that I love the title and the wonderful pictures! I also really enjoy the author’s ‘voice’ as he narrates his musings of life, and also liked the interjected quotes from Aurelius (a personal fave of mine) and it fits in nicely with this book. Good lessons and morals to be gleaned here, as it is clear the author has a fairly decent grasp on what is really important in a balanced life, yet questions it in a way that only a wise person can do. Great list of books at the end too, and their influence is evident in these pages. (5 stars) Layla Messing; GoodReadsLibrarythingShelfari, Barnes & Noble

This was a very quick read for me, and I enjoyed it more than I expected to. It’s a unique blend of fiction/nonfiction, I think in the way that the author combines life with his literary spin (if that makes sense). Some parts read almost like poems, and felt like was told in a riddle with perhaps hidden meanings. But I liked reading the succession of entries day after day and watched them change from one to the next. But at the heart of it all the author stresses balance and how important it is. Good advice for us all. (4 stars)Laura Clarke; GoodReadsLibrarythingShelfari, Barnes & Noble

Great! Read it in one evening and my only complaint is that I wish it was longer! It was a blast getting inside the author Dean Robert’s head for a while and seeing the world through his eyes and his experiences. The sign of a good writer is when he (or she) can make almost any event or experience relatable to others, even in the most unrelatablecircumstances. The author’s and mines lives couldn’t be more different, yet I felt like he was speaking directly to (and for) me, and I could appreciate his candor and insight. A delightful read. (5 stars) Cody Brighton; GoodReadsLibrarythingShelfari, Barnes & Noble
