Synopsis of Mom and Dad’s Pearls of Wisdom… You Gotta Love ’Em

Remember those memorable pearls of wisdom your mom and dad gave you while you were a child growing up? “Take all you want, but eat all you take.” In the book, Dr. Emener says, “And even into adulthood, like when I was telling my mother about how my adult daughter had changed after her son (my first grandson) was born, she said, ‘Children become better children when they have children of their own.’”

The book includes a Prologue, My Farewells (the last time he spoke with his now deceased Mom and Dad) and an Epilogue. There are 50 vignette moments – each concluded with its respective pearl of wisdom. Of the 50 vignette/pearls of wisdom, 38 are his and 12 are others’. In the process of writing the book, he remembered the pearls he got from his parents and the precious moments when they said them to him. Moreover, he also spoke to others (while walking the beach, at biker bars and dockside restaurants) and captured their pearls and memorable moments. As you enjoy Dr. Emener’s stroll down his memory lane, you’ll embark on yours as well.

In a nutshell, the book is a relatively short, coffee table book that people will not only want for themselves, but also will buy for their family members as gifts (e.g., a great stocking-suffer, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gift).
