What Readers Say…
“If you liked the “Chicken Soup” series, you will love Fresh Start Moments. Here are 100 true stories that are examples of individuals who experienced an event that catalyzed insight or action–or both. I was delighted to read that a percentage of the book sales will go to The Child Welfare League of America. Author Bob Danzig is a product of the foster child system in the U.S. Many fresh start moments for these children.”
–Eileen McDargh, author of Your Resiliency GPS
“In full disclosure, I am one of the hundred stories in this book, so likely have a bias. I want to commend this as a favorite book for the holidays — and beyond. It is rich, varied, and inspiring. There could not be a better range of “fresh start” stories. Written about 100 subjects, each with a different voice, there are lessons for each of us, regardless of whether we are in need of a fresh start or not. For yourself, or for a loved one. I probably should make a second disclosure that Bob Danzig, the person who compiled this marvelous work is a friend. We met by chance five years ago (though I have considerable doubt that the people we meet are by chance). FRESH START MOMENTS is a gift — and I have already ordered several copies as gifts.”

“My bet is you’ve been there just like most of the rest of us. You’re at a stage in your life where you are so frustrated with where you have been you have no idea where you are going. AND…even if you do have some idea…you have no idea how you’re going to get there. If that is your situation, then this anthology of experiences of people who have “been there…done that,” too will be an extremely valuable resource for you. All the best as you read these, “fresh start moments” to find inspiration for your own fresh start.”
