Review:

"Steve Millard worked for me at the time of his break from reality.  It was a tragic time for him, for me, and for all the people who worked with him at the Reader’s Digest. Steve’s later recovery and success have made him my all-time poster boy."
-Frank Ronnenberg, Former V-P, Reader’s Digest

"I have known Steve Millard for over 30 years as a friend and a business associate.  He is one of those individuals that only along once in ones lifetime. He is unique, with a larger than life personality.
I have witnessed many of his struggles with bipolar disorder and can only imagine how difficult they are for him. I have also witnessed his high, his incredible zest for life and the ability to live life to its fullest.
But equally important, I have witnessed his marketing skills and how he helped pioneer the catalog and direct marketing industry. Those skills were a major part of the dynamic growth of the Brookstone Company."
-Doug Anderson, former President, Bookstone

"Steve Millard was a good friend of L.L. Bean and a catalog marketing consultant instrumental to our success. He was upbeat and outgoing in his public life but quietly and courageously dealt with his emotional illness."
-Leon Gorman, CEO L.L. Bean

"During the many years of my personal and professional relationship with Steve Millard, I have never been witness to any indication of his personal struggles with bipolar disorder. Obviously, his life-long determination to confront the obstacles and challenges this has presented is commendable.  His professional success, his contribution to his industry and his community is proof of the fact that even in the face of this illness, a person can lead a rewarding and fulfilling life. His willingness to share his story with others earns him my complete admiration."
-Howard Lester, Chairman and CEO, Williams-Sonoma
