About this title


A candid and thought-provoking set of twenty-six alphabetical essays (AZ) brought to life by the typographic styling of an award-winning book designer, Off the Top of My Head explores how we think about, experience, and ultimately communicate the impact of significant life events.

From the Back Cover:

"Steve Lorch's extraordinary new book is both moving and inspiring in its honesty.  His thoughtful explorations of how we think about and experience significant life events are compelling, inviting us to more deeply reflect on the events that shape our lives." 
Dr. John J. DeGioia, President, Georgetown University
"Steve Lorch's head and heart are filled with wise and warm associations and insights.  A perfect read for all of us who are nourished by the wisdom of others."
Ellen Schall, Dean and Martin Cherkasky Professor of Health Policy & Management at New York University's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service
"When all is said and done, I want this book close at hand simply because it keeps me--and many, many others--connected to a truly unique, remarkable, and wonderful human being." 
Harry L. Davis, Roger L. and Rachel M. Goetz Distinguished Service Professor of Creative Management at the University of Chicago Booth School of Management
"Steve's writing is pervaded by optimism, yet served with a knowing wink--hey, this is human nature, and it really is worth putting up with. A great book, a philosophy for our times."
Roald Hoffmann, Nobel Laureate and Frank H.T. Rhodes Professor of Humane Letters, Emeritus, Cornell University
