Book Review: Bo’s Cafe

Posted on: September 28, 2009

bos-cafeSteven Kerner thought he had it all together, but his wife and daughter knew better.  His coworkers knew better.  Even the guy sitting beside him at the bar knew better.  But in Steven’s mind, he had all the success and fortune he had dreamed about, and for him, that’s all that mattered.

Then he blows up at his wife and she kicks him out.  Steven’s seemingly perfect life all of a sudden comes crashing down around him.  Where can Steven turn?

In Bo’s Cafe, John Lynch, Bill Thrall, and Bruce McNicol reveal the heartaches and emptiness that often accompanies worldly successful executives who are content to join in the rat race and continually climb the proverbial ladder.

Turns out the guy beside him at the bar, Andy, may have a way to get Steven’s life straightened out.  Steven thinks Andy looks like the local president of the Parrothead Club, but begrudgingly tries to forge a friendship with the stranger.

Through a series of conversations with Andy and Andy’s friends, Steven discovers that his life really wasn’t all that he had convinced himself it was.  Steven had pushed everyone, including himself, away from his true self.  Even Steven couldn’t figure out what was causing all of his problems.  Will Steven discover what it will take to get his family, and his life, back?

This novel reveals that worldly success may not be the answer to everything, and may not even be the answer to anything, for that matter.  I highly recommend this novel.  I learned some things about myself, not just through Steven and Andy, but through the others as well.  It is an incredible story, and I fell blessed after reading it and I believe you will, too.  Pick up a copy as soon as you can – you will not regret it!
