Life's Equation - an adult bookwrap


"Life's Equation"
A journey toward finding greater purpose

Authored by Frank Daidone

Unwrapping excerpts from www.thecozydragon.com interview

("in his own words")

For those who haven’t read it yet, can you give us a quick summary of what Life’s Equation is all about?
It’s really about asking ourselves ‘What is my purpose?” More specifically, questioning whether or not we’re on the right path. As far back as I can remember, I’ve attempted to make sense of my own purpose in life, sometimes accepting only what seemed realistic while disregarding pretty much anything else. Most of us subconsciously go through this same exercise throughout multiple stages of our lives, while others constantly surrender to the critical voice in their head, replacing the possibility and creativity with resistance and doubt.
We all have the tendency to set unfulfilling goals for ourselves, which restricts our personal potential and makes us miss valuable opportunities because of our own struggle with self-doubt.
That’s how Life’s Equation came together. I wanted to share my own stories about people I’ve met along the way who influenced me in inspiring ways while also elaborating further on some basic, but unexpected truths and life lessons that I hope, in turn, will inspire readers of the book. I hope readers will celebrate their experiences through logically discovering their true purpose, all while helping to make the world a better place in the process.

Your book has been impacting people across all ages and stages of their life. What’s the biggest lesson you hope they take away from reading Life’s Equation?
The feedback both verbally and through written reviews has been extraordinary. I’ve had people both young and old thank me in very emotional manners for writing the book and have expressed to me how much the message impacted them personally and often times helped with healing. I hope that the readers gain an understanding that while we are all unique in our own way, there really is a common energy in all of us. I hope that message is clarified and inspires them to want to help make the world a better place, not just for themselves, but for all.

A percentage of your book sales goes toward United Cerebral Palsy. Can you tell us a bit more about how and why you got involved Sevwith the organization?
As children, alongside my family, my sister and I were both volunteers for UCP as a result of my brother having Cerebral Palsy. In dedicating my book to my brother, I felt it necessary to get involved with a related organization to help in any way I could and formed a relationship with the Director of Institutional Support and donate $1 of every book sale to UCP.

That’s truly incredible! Can you tell us a bit about your brother Anthony, and how his CP impacted your family dynamic growing up? How did it affect you?
Anthony was and still is my true hero and my inspiration for practically every charge in my life. While we never exchanged words verbally to each other we had a very special connection. His joy of life despite his extraordinary inhibiting circumstances far surpassed any level of contentment I have ever witnessed in any human being. While our family growing up was restricted to doing practically any normal family activities, outings or vacations together, Anthony’s existence enriched the dynamic in our family and shaped who we all are today.

What’s on the horizon for you as an author? Can we expect to see more writing from you in 2017 and beyond?
I am currently working on book number two as we speak. It is a continuation of Life’s Equation by taking the ideas and concepts to a new level attempting to address issues we all face as a society. I have a vision of a brighter more peaceful existence for all living things and I see a clear path on how we can get there. My next book will be a roadmap for peace.

My take on the book...

The part of the book that impacted me the most was Frank's (and his family's) heartfelt connect to his brother Anthony.  Several times I had tears in my eyes as I read about the constant care and love that Anthony needed just to survive each day.  Everyone in the family pulled together to give him the best quality of life that they possibly could and the unconditional love they showed for him was inspiring.  They looked past his infirmity and saw the value and worth he contributed to their family.  Anthony truly impacted each of their lives while he was a physical part of their family and spiritually long after he was gone.  I love the fact that a portion of the book sales will be given to such a worthwhile organization.  That was one of reasons I was so eager to review the book and get the word out to my readers.  I was so happy to be given the opportunity to do so.  

I am sure you will enjoy reading the book and asking yourself, "What is my purpose in life and am I heading in the right direction to fulfill that purpose?"  It certainly is a book that challenges you to think about your life's journey and that inspires you to become a better person and to make a positive, real difference in your world.  

Written in memoir style, this book promotes humourous, moving experiences and hard-won lessons that Frank actually experienced throughout his life.  It certainly will open up many possibilities that will allow you to discover and celebrate exactly who you are.
