Format: Paperback
As I read Dr. Garmston's book, I was reminded time and again of a central theme of George Vaillant's "Aging Well", a book summarizing the findings of several well-regarded longitudinal studies on adult development. That is, a sense of personal efficacy paired with persistence make all the difference. Bob Garmston's life certainly demonstrates this. What a ride Bob has had, one that inspires us all.

Format: Paperback
"I Don't Do That Anymore" is an engaging chronicle of astonishing childhood stories that normally would predict a lifetime of failure. The International success Bob attained engenders faith in resilience and fosters hope for myriad struggling children in similar tenuous, unpredictable, and painful environments.
From Chapter 1, I could see "Movie" written all over the pages. I have known Bob for many decades and so heard some of his early childhood stories throughout the years, but had no idea he was only telling the Cliff Note versions. Therefore, I was spellbound with anticipation as I read the unfolding collection of his adventures and misadventures told with verve and humor.

If you've ever been through any challenges in life, this book will make you feel you can do anything! Bob honestly shares stories of his life with a heart wide-open. I keep ordering copies because I give the book away so often to friends and colleagues of all ages/backgrounds. This is a book that is a true gift--I was unable to put it down and now am not the same person I was before reading. I am so grateful.
