Summertime is often a time we catch up on reading and this summer is no exception. Â I finally sat down to read a book IÂ purchasedÂ last summer, Crazy for the Storm: A Memoir of Survival (Amazon affiliate link) by Norman Ollestad. Â This is a true story, but written with the depth, pace, and strong characterizations one would expect of a good novel.
When Norman was 11 years old, the charter plane he was on with his Dad and Dad’s girlfriend crashed into a mountainside. Â Norman was the only survivor. Â As much as this is a story of survival, it is also an insightful look at fatherhood, and a very special relationship between a father and son. Â Watch the video below for more.
Jeff Sass is the proud dad of ZEO (Zach, 22, Ethan, 20 and Olivia, 18). Â He is also a seasoned entertainment and technology exec and active social media enthusiast. Â You can see more of Jeffâ€™s writing atÂ Sassholes! andÂ Social Networking Rehab and you can listen to Jeff on theÂ Cast of Dads podcast.?
