I finished writing Think & Grow Balls! in December of 2007. The book had been churning in me for years before I actually set down to write everything out. During my writing, I realized I was suggesting some pretty deep ideas. Not feeling comfortable with what was in the book I set out to interview as many people as I could to bounce my ideas off of them. I spent six months conducting field research, meeting and talking to new people, making great friends and solidifying my ideas which later become the final version of my book. I think my book connects with so many people because my ideas were boiled down to the concepts that bind all of us together. By the time I had the book ready to submit to my publisher, I had a list of hundreds of people that wanted an advance copy of it. I knew I had written something good!
