About this title

Synopsis:

Ever hassle your kid brother on a long trip? Ever have a first kiss? Ever grow up? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this book is for you. These 40-oddball adventures take a light-hearted look at everything from family trips to favorite ice cream stands, from impure thoughts to summer camp cramps. So peel back the years and join us for a long overdue trip into "Family Vacations & Other Hazards of Growing Up."

From the Publisher:

This book is something of a sleeper. Because it comes from a small press, it hasn't received a lot of attention yet is worth every moment of your time. Reviewers who pick up Family Vacations & Other Hazards of Growing Up are universal in their praise. "Steve White's memoir Family Vacations & Other Hazards of Growing Up is 'Leave it to Beaver' meets 'The Wonder Years,'" said a member of the National Book Critics Circle.

White's main goal in life is making people smile. As such, he goes out of his way to make you do just that. "I have never laughed so hard reading the copyright/legal page of a book," is proof of this from another reviewer.

Despite being put out by an independent press, Family Vacations & Other Hazards of Growing Up caught the eye of respected national TV personality and successful publishing magnate (CEO of ReganBooks, publisher of Howard Stern's and Rush Limbaugh's books) Judith Regan. She calls it, "Beautiful...better than anything coming out of New York!"

Yet another, this from no less the experts on the subject at Writer's Digest said: "Funny, charming, warm and well-paced. White has done everything right." It should also be noted that White's book was named a Nonfiction Winner of the WD International Self-Published Books Prize, a competition which included over 20,000 entries.

Popular, respected columnist and national institution Mike Kelly of the Omaha World Herald said: "To wit, lots of miles and tons of smiles. Readers of any generation will identify with White's tales of growing up. This author takes you on a welcome and gentle journey."

If you remain a skeptic, first check for a pulse, then take a look at this last comment: "What fun reading! Steve turns back the clock, reminding everyone that childhood is one of the glorious aspects of life."
