Stories, wisdom and financial tips from a man who's been around longer than TV, chocolate-chip cookies and ballpoint pens. As a child during the Great Depression, author Steve Mucha learned how his parents turned hard times into good times. As a father and businessman, he learned the necessity of financial planning and secrets of selling things. His memoir, "Advice From a 90-Year-Old Man," though, is about much more than money. It's about a plunge on a sled into a frozen lake. A mother's kindness to folks near and far. Catching 100 fish in a single day. A brother's heroism at Pearl Harbor. Fillings picking up radio stations. The joys of family, sports, music and much more. Readers will find lots of answers: What are some secrets to a thriving marriage? What's an easy way to cut your golf score without cheating? What's it like being very, very old? "Advice From a 90-Year-Old Man" is one man's sharing of simple but important lessons, expressed with humor, and including some good, clean jokes.
