I actually don't know Dal LaMagna until a mate uttered the words "Ten percent of your success is the idea; 90 percent is work." which he said on a morning news show. I later found out that he's a very successful entrepreneur and his an author at the same time.

> Dal LaMagna is one of the funniest, most original people I've ever met. He puts his money, passion and creativity to work for what he believes in. I say that with particular appreciation because he was the first person ever to invest in me. Dal is a born storyteller who has good material to work with. This book is guaranteed to make you laugh--and think about how you are living your life. -- Nina Rothschild Utne, Co-Founder Utne Reader, Founder Future Fit 4 years 25 weeks ago

Dal LaMagna's story is not only eloquent and insightful; it is also an enlightening expose on how to bounce back from failure and succeed in a failed economic climate.
A college professor once told a class I was in: "The only difference between a person who ultimately fails and one who succeeds is that the latter has failed one more time and tried again."
"Raising Eyebrows" is a magnificent testament to this philosophy.
This is an easy to read, often funny book that, like stories told by the Buddha, carries a great deal of sage advice.
