Four Stars and a Critics choice in People and a Reader's Choice award from Elle

Check out the stories on Look Me in the Eye in the September 24 issue of People and the October issue of Elle. Both are on news stands now. Very cool.

And we're off . . .

3:30 and I'm heading out the door for a four hour trip to the British Invasion in Stowe, Vermont. If any of you ar enear Stowe, stop by and say hi. I'll be in the Land Rover area around our red Defender 90 and the MINI area with our green Cooper S.

I'll post photos from the show.

John, you used to work on my Landrover before I moved out of Massachusetts. I was so excited when I found out about this book months ago. I cannot wait to read it!! I'm so happy you've decided to share your stories and even more happy to be reading excellent reviews already. May you have a successful writing career!!! You're not going to give up the shop are you?

Congratulations! I don't frequent magazines all that much, but will finger through the next Elle that catches my eye.

Have a great excursion!

I am intrigued by this book and plan on getting it.I have a 21yo son who has struggled and been labeled LDD,ADHD, Bipolar, and the last diagnosis he got at age 13 was Aspergers. He was in and out of different school programs because he couldn't handle being mainstreamed yet he was very intelligent. He was reading before he was talking. He also sat down and decided to write a book at age 16 which was published. Since then he has written 2 more, the third one coming out this month (sourcebooks publishing co). He wasn't ready to write about his struggles so he wrote a humor book titled "505 Unbelievably Stupid Web Pages". To me (his mom)Dan is the sweetest person you would ever want to meet. He still struggles with social skills and other problems related to his bipolar, but he has come a long way. Thanks for your bringing this still "silent" disorder to the forefront with your book. I look forward to reading it and sharing it with Dan.

My copy of ELLE should arrive any day now. I'll look for it!

Have a great time in Stowe--it's so beautiful there.

I can't imagine you've ever bought "elle" before now, John! Are you being interviewed by Playboy or Penthouse and such so our husbands/boyfriends can buy them, "for the articles."

And what a nice note from anonymous.

John,
Just read tore through the PEOPLE magazine looking for you.

It was the Best Gown Special Double Issue.

To say that I wasn't amused seeing you, my friend, among Lindsay Lohan and Angelina Jolie would be an understatement.

I am salivating over your book. I cannot wait.

Hope to see you there . . .

Anonymous, I am not giving up the shop. I have a manager running it for me, though.

Kim, I am not in Playboy or Penthouse yet but my publicist is negotiating with them as I write this.
