Format: Paperback
Unlike most readers, I have had the wonderful opportunity to actually work with Stan Dashew, the philanthropist. As I got to know him, I also met Stan Dashew the inventor; Stan Dashew, the sailor; and Stan Dashew, the father. He is truly one of the most interesting and inspirational men I have had the privilege to know.

While the book does not come close to what one gets from meeting Mr. Dashew, for those who do not have that opportunity, it is the next best thing. It paints a vivid picture of a caring, generous, self-made man who is a true inventor--someone who has invented new uses for old products, who has invented new products to respond to previously unmet needs, and who has reinvented himself many times. Neither the aging process nor health challenges stop him from inventing; I can't wait to see what comes next.

Whether looking for adventure stories on the high seas, the biography of an inventor who revolutionized the credit card industry, or tips from someone who believes that nothing is impossible and a person with inspiration can accomplish very great things, the reader will enjoy Mr. Dashew's book. I congratulate him on its publication.

Many dream to accomplish ONE major event in their lives. Stanley Dashew has had not only one, but many major events in his. That is what I find this book so incredible to experience. Step by step you get to experience his journey and to see his thought processes on how he creatively found solutions to his challenges in business, family and inventions. At 94 years old he never sits still. Imagine writing a book at 94 years old and still have ambition for more. That's called living! If you want inspiration. If you want to eliminate excuses. Than this is the book for you. That's why this book is properly titled "You CAN Do It!" All the best to your endeavors. Happy reading!

I didn't know about Dashew before I saw his book on Amazon. Frankly I was hoping for more. It was a bit disjointed, and much of the advice was abstract feel-good stuff: "persevere!", that kind of thing. Given his achievements, I expected a bit better.

My uncle worked for Mr. Dashew as well as doing work on his boat. He had told me what an amazing man and inventor Dashew was. I found this book and sent it to him. He called to thank me for the book and said he couldn't put it down. Lots of things he never knew even though they had a close personal relationship. I'm looking forward to reading the book as well as hearing the stories behind the story.
