Creating a More Peaceful, Happy and Successful Life!”  Printed 2013.................$32.00


In Creating a More Peaceful, Happy and Successful Life! Frank shares deep insights discovered along his personal life journey that are not only inspirational and motivational, but practical, serving as a roadmap to help guide us through the mountains and valleys we all encounter in out daily lives. I’m happy to say I have an ‘attitude of gratitude’ for his book!”... Kathy Litchfield, Marketing consultant, Gill, Massachusetts

   “This book should be in every home! Not only can it be read by all, but it should be read by all! You have quoted a lot of known and less know persons and have described what you have learned from them. What I found most interesting is that this book is not only theory but solutions that you have found successful for you and others.

   Personally, I think I have a rather relaxed life with a wonderful family so when I read your book I thought I would compare the differences between the United States and Europe, however, I learned so much I am tempted to try several of your suggestions that have helped you to a better and happier life!” ... Flemming Kokholm, Aalborg, Denmark
