More About the Author

In 2000, fun-loving, single father Jeff Siegel embarked on a spur-of-the-moment vacation with his son Spence that took them across the southwestern tier of National Basketball Association arenas. Shortly thereafter, Siegel formulated a grandiose plan: he and Spence would visit every NBA arena and Major League Baseball park in the United States.

What started as a series of hilarious road games and unexpected tours turned into a journey that would change everything for the Siegel and his son. Through their quest, Jeff and Spence have re-imagined the classic road trip and invented a new model for a family vacation - the RelationTrip.

Siegel shares his sage advice in an inspiring and engaging new book, RelationTrips: A Simple, Powerful Way to Bond with Your Loved Ones Through Personalized Road Trips. With genuine energy and enthusiasm, Siegel recounts his experiences traveling with Spence and offers tips and secrets to help other families design, plan and execute RelationTrips around their unique hobbies and interests. Part memoir, part guidebook, RelationTrips provides families with a practical road map for building enduring connections and creating trips filled with adventure, imagination, discovery and fun.

Siegel is an articulate, engaging resource for reporters, bloggers and show hosts. He has entertained audiences and shared his wit and wisdom on morning news programs including "Showcase Minnesota," "FOX 9 Morning News," and "Monsters & Money," as well as provided RelationTrips tips to Better Homes & Gardens, the Washington Post, the Denver Post, the Times Record, KMBC-TV, KCTV 5 and the WDLJ-FM Morning News.

With decades of experience creating dynamic presentations for Fortune 500 companies as a creative director, Siegel knows how to share his message with enthusiasm. He appears regularly as a speaker, sharing the RelationTrips story and teaching audiences of all shapes and sizes how to create these magical journeys on their own.

When not planning an adventure with his son, Siegel is a creative director and independent marketing / communications consultant. Fortune 500 companies such as Nestle, Sears, McDonald's, and Motorola have regularly called on Siegel to direct national meetings, product launches and marketing campaigns.

Format: Paperback
Well, it sounds like a cool idea - smart, practical tips on taking one's child away on a trip that's not only fun and educational, but also fosters a closer parent-child bond. What I discovered, though, is that this book is more than just "cool" or "helpful." Personally, I feel as though the author is on to something very significant.

I'll put it this way ... while reading the book, I kept wishing it had been around while my dad was still alive ... and that HE could have read it, and acted on it, when I was a boy. It's impossible to express how deeply I would have valued the chance to go on even a single "RelationTrip" like the ones Jeff Siegel has shared with his fortunate son.

Sadly, it's too late for me and my dad. If I could, though, I'd have every parent in America read "RelationTrips" and consider his/her opportunities, big or small, to turn a shared experience like the ones Mr. Siegel writes about into memories and closeness that last a lifetime. This book is a profound opportunity to create something unforgettably nourishing and fulfilling between parent and child. And it offers that important service while being an engaging, easy read.

Jeff's struck a chord here -- too many screens, too many distractions, life on the run, etc. STOP! Take some time and show your family the world. Make your kids participants and not spectators. Lots to be gained by using Relationtrips as a guide and the result will be stronger relationships and incredible memories.
