About Yardstick: A Life Measured
[A Coach Bob Story!]
Bob graduates college but cannot find a job, well not a real job anyway. Once the star QB he now faces hunger and fear as there are no more free meals at the U. Bob is saved by Coach Mac, his mentor and high school football coach, an old throw back who molds boys out of mud and field turf. Coach Mac teaches Bob how to develop the "ladies" into men, with a life plan after the last whistle has blown. Bob's real fear though is measuring up to his buddies from school and the 'meet-ups' where they celebrate successes, lament failures and hold each other accountable. Real truths are shared by men more accustomed to ripping each other than baring their souls. Over the years Coach Bob learns the yardsticks that matter and measure the value of one's life.

"This book is a must-read! Couldn't put it down. Can easily identify with people in my own life that fit the main characters. Happiness truly comes from loving what you do."
Scott K Magnesen. Managing Director, Morgan Stanley
“I am not much of a reader of fiction so the book better be good for me to read it. This one is! Yardstick is a fast paced, easy read with characters that everyone can identify with and terrific plot twists. The central theme of measuring one’s life is relatable to anyone and certainly thought provoking. If you are only going to read one fiction novel this year, make it Yardstick.”
