“The book reads like a novel... But it has the ring of truth, and an uplifting message that endures.” (The New York Times) Once a happily married businessman, an avid golfer, and the proud owner of several luxury cars and three boats, conservative-minded Richard LeMieux saw his fortune change almost overnight. In this now classic memoir that has touched thousands of readers across the globe, LeMieux describes his descent into homelessness and his struggle to survive personal and economic disaster. Evicted from his home in 2002 and living with his dog, Willow, in a beat-up old van, LeMieux finds himself penniless and estranged from his family and friends. He dines at the Salvation Army (Sally’s), attempts suicide, and is treated at a mental hospital, where he is diagnosed with depression. Writing on a secondhand manual typewriter, first at a picnic table in a public park, and then wherever he can, LeMieux describes his odyssey and the quirky, diverse, and endearing cast of characters found among the homeless people of Bremerton, Washington, and by extension, everywhere else. Breakfast at Sally’s is a rare inside look at how the other America lives, and how one man, beaten down and alone, was able to reconnect, to find good people, and, ultimately, with their help, to persevere. Updated with an all-new chapter, interviews with the author, a book club guide, and an obituary for Willow. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dick Hill.

Why do: Dutch babies seem so content, and sleep so well? Dutch parents let their kids play outside on their own? The Dutch trust their children to bike to school? Dutch schools not set homework for the under-tens? Dutch teenagers not rebel? What is the secret of bringing up the happiest kids in the world? The secret of bringing up the happiest kids in the world. In a recent UNICEF study of child well-being, Dutch children came out on top as the happiest all-round. In Growing Up Happy, Rina Mae Acosta and Michele Hutchison, both married to Dutchmen and bringing up their kids in Holland, examine the unique environment that enables the Dutch to turn out such contented, well-adjusted and healthy babies, children and teens. So what is the secret? Is it that babies are given a strict routine, or that children cycle to school and are allowed to play outside on their own? Is it that they don't get homework until they are ten, or that they seem content with secondhand toys? Does the fact that home births are popular have anything to do with it, or that Dutch parents have nailed the work/life balance? Is it because Dutch kids are seen and heard - or because they get to eat chocolate sprinkles on buttered bread for breakfast? Read this book if you want to find out what lessons you can learn from Dutch parents, to ensure your kids turn out happy!
