It's a "how-to" book with great unicycling tips, and it's a great success story. But more than that, the author talks about matters of the heart and the foundation of his success: faith, family, health, and vocation (in that order). He puts a little humor in the mix, and produces an informative, inspiring, and fun book (with pictures!) that only takes a couple of hours for the average reader to enjoy.
John Drummond tells the true story about his humble beginnings as a child who discovers a love for unicycle riding, and his rise to entrepreneurism as he follows his lifelong dream of one day owning his own company. That company: [...], a worldwide presence in the unicycling market today.
Read this book to further your love for unicycling, or to get inspired to follow your dream, whatever it may be!
For the record, the Hammonds run product-based businesses, with warehouses and inventory and shipping and suppliers and all those pesky details that sometimes get glossed over in the instant wealth internet marketing schemes. He even states that his best advertising (for banjos) is billboards. How old-fashioned! How interesting! (Not a month later, I heard a different internet wise man advise negotiating over magazine & journal rate cards, which is much the same as negotiating over billboard rates. Useful.)
Not likely that I'm going to get on a unicycle any time soon, but I am glad I read the book.
