> Dal’s improbable success after many failures is a lesson for all of us not only about business but about life. Dal tells his story in a delightfully humorous “no holds barred way” and shares what he has learned about creating a business that benefits society as a whole. This is a really good read. Dal rocks. -- Ben Cohen, Co-founder of Ben and Jerry’s 4 years 43 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.

from David Aldrich Whatever way you slice it, your book is remarkably rich and well-rounded. You need not know the guy, or even care about the product, to find it all wonderfully entertaining and informative -- and informative for a life beyond business. Dal you have honed the right voice for promoting social responsibility -- one that doesn't sound self-serving or sanctimonious, or awkward.
