About the Author

Barry has shared with tens of thousands of people the dangers of binge drinking, and his experience of losing his 18 year old son, Kevin, to alcohol poisoning. The day that was supposed to mark the beginning of Kevin’s adult life, turned out to be his last, and Barry’s message is both a powerful inspiration and a warning about the consequences of even one night of binge drinking. Barry’s compelling presentation has saved countless lives and is fulfilling his dream to “make something very good” come from his son’s death. In 2007, Barry set out on an epic 1400 mile journey, and walked from Arizona to Montana with his son’s ashes in his backpack. On a mission to share his story, Barry reached thousands through media coverage of the walk, and presentations at schools, churches and treatment facilities along the way. To date, Barry has shared his story with over 50,000 students and parents across the country. Barry’s presentation describes in powerful detail the night his son died, the quiet Sunday morning he got that “knock on the door”, and how he came up with the idea to walk from Arizona to Montana. His presentation and powerful takeaways will leave your students enthralled and asking for more, and appreciating every breath they take.

Format: Paperback
A truly inspiring story that is full of only real, touching moments. As a rising senior in college, I have learned a lot from reading this book. While at a young age there are times I feel "invincible", Kevin and Barry's story taught me how precious life is and how to live it to the fullest. This is a must read for all ages alike. It's a touching story that will make you laugh and cry many times as you connect to the story on a deep level. Really an exceptional story!

I was so moved by this well written book/journal that I read it in 2 days! It was both inspirational and awakening. You really understand the dangers of drinking along with the love of a dedicated father. I felt like I was on this long journey with Barry. From the steep hills to the bad weather it was like I was walking right along with him. I highly recommend this book, especially if you have teenage children.

A tragic and inspiring story "That something very good will come from this" to all that read this book.
To any parent that wants to reach out to their teenager and a lesson every teenager should know about.
By the end, I promise you both a different look on life.

Once I started this book, I literally could not stop reading it! Took me a full 8 hours, but I read straight through. My father also had to make arrangments for my older brother. I was the one who got the call, gathered my siblings and had to tell my father the horrible news that his son had overdosed on drugs and was no longer with us. So needless to say, your story immediatly drew me in. The way you wrote it, I felt like I was a part of your walk with Kevin. I felt your sorrow, cried when you cried and even laughed with you! It is a beautiful thing you, did with what was such a tragidy. I have teenagers of my own and this is a must read for them. They need to know, and constantly be reminded, that tomorrow is not guaranteed and what may seem like one harmless night of parting could be thier last. I admire the father you are and love you have for Kevin. Thank you Barry, for your bravery in this journey and for sharing it with the world!

This book was written by my friends dad. It is a must read. A great teaching/learning oppertunity for teens and adults. My friends death could have been prevented, but don't let him ly in vain. Read this and learn and spread the word. Thank you.

You will be inspired by Barry's awesome faith and strength to overcome great odds while sharing his story with students and parents along the journey.

As a radio show host on A2Zen.fm I read a lot of books but rarely do I find one so inspirational, and compelling that I can't stop reading. Kevin's last walk made me cry, made me laugh and made me feel I was right along side of Barry for the entire 1400 miles (except my legs and feet don't hurt). This is a book that everyone should read, whether you are a parent, a teenager or someone that knows a parent or teenager (dah I think that's everyone unless you live under a rock). Oh, and did I say I couldn't stop reading?

Alcohol related deaths affect just about everyone and yet Barry decided to make a difference and make sure that Something Very Good Would Come from His Loss. If just one person is spared the grief that Barry suffered with the loss of Kevin, because they read this book...
