THE AUTHOR MEANS IT WHEN HE SAYS EMBRACE YOUR AGE– YOU CAN BE BETTER THAN EVER. Mr. Flaherty, an optimistic 88-year-old-going-on-58, nails your self-doubts and insecurities whether you’re 50 or 90, with some direct calls to action. Besides acknowledging your bathroom mirror as your most meaningful psychiatrist, Flaherty makes you confront your toughest critic–yourself–and gives you the emotional ammunition that will help you wake up on the right side of the grass tomorrow with a smile and a purpose. He challenges you to summarize your life in a six-word statement. His? I am present–Living, Giving, Loving. You’ll find wisdom, loving guidance, and Did He Really Say That? in this easy-to-read shot of adrenalin. Jim has had a hell of a not boring life. Self-made, a corner office MadMan in NYC, even four years abroad, while raising two children (who still enjoy him), nifty grandsons, and friends everywhere. At 87 he’s still writing every day, has preached at his church, is a public speaker . . .and a terrific joke teller. You’d like him. And you’d do him a favor if you tell an agent to get to know Gem—I mean, Jim. Look at www.jamesbflaherty.com Read about his TV series & screenplay.
