The 1st Book Signing for SHIFT
Saturday, July 15th, 2017
12:00 PM to 2:00 PM
1 Hawthorne Avenue
Park Ridge, NJ 07656
Please join me for the 1st ever book signing for my memoir, Shift-Creating Better Tomorrow. It's about my near-death cycling accident, recovery, and new found perspective. I also call it My Last Bad Day. All the profits for Shift will be given to World Bicycle Relief, a global non-profit that designs and delivers high-quality bicycles in developing countries.
I hope you can come. It would be a lot and bring a friend. The bigger the peloton the better.
Leading up to the accident Michael led a pitch-perfect “normal” American life. He enjoyed a healthy and full lifestyle in suburban new jersey, he was married with two daughters and had a successful, busy and stressful career. He thought that was enough until his entire worldview changed in an instant. Michael’s road to recovery was long and arduous. The degree of his injuries shocked even the EMTs who came to his rescue. Alongside the physical challenges, he also struggled with intense and dark emotions - hopelessness, despair and intense anger towards the driver who hit him. The turning point of his recovery came when he realized, “the only person who could make my situation better, was me, my mindset and my belief system. I had to change everything."
