Part inspirational rallying call, part first-person, autobiographical narrative, part eulogy for a treasured friend and mentor, "Life's Too Short for Leftovers" takes the reader on a highly personal journey of self-discovery. 
Best-selling author Michael Ditchfield's  Life's Too Short for Leftovers - cleverly presented as courses on a menu - conveys a singular perspective on what it means to be human, and what is required of us as individuals to be active, engaged participants in humanity. With delightfully dry wit and profound understanding, Ditchfield introduces us to Chef Noel Cunningham - his guide and teacher - along with a kitchen-full of congenial and extraordinarily noble real-life protagonists that have served as both lightning rods and light posts in the author's relentless (albeit sometimes reluctant) pathway toward personal transformation. 

Ditchfield is a master storyteller, and his conversational style skillfully relates timeless philosophies to contemporary challenges and opportunities that face Third World countries today. Based on his extensive experience in Africa, Ditchfield brings a generous portion of lucid insights and aha moments to the table, leading the charge toward improved, positive outcomes - in our own lives, and in the lives of others. Life's Too Short for Leftovers is a stimulating and memorable must-read for students of life.

Review:

"From devastated countryside to comfortable kitchens, the author relates his encounters in clear, confident prose and carefully balances hard facts and statistics about emerging nations with playful observations and hopeful good humor... A series of moving, important stories from a passionate humanitarian..."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Ditchfield shines...this book will inspire readers to want to do their part to become better citizens of the world" -- Blue Ink Reivew

"Ditchfield offers unique and inspirational ideas to act on as we connect with others around this world." -- Suzanne Brown, Denver Post

"This novel is equal parts inspiring and clever. The writing style of Michael Ditchfield really had me tuned in from the very beginning. Each story had its own lesson, thought provoking situations, and recipe/food spin that makes it unique. The best part about this novel is that it won't be until the end that you realize just how much it affected you. It will stick with you."
