Head basketball coach of Notre Dame at age 29, a position he held for more than two decades with a 100 percent graduation rate, an attention-getting figure in President George H. W. Bush's anti-drug program, part-time ambassador, a nationally adored ESPN commentator, and a possible Presidential candidate, Richard “Digger” Phelps has done it all. Undertaker's Son is an eminently readable, inspirational, account of how he rose from an unmotivated student in small-town Beacon, New York, to a nationally known figure who attracts attention wherever he goes. One lesson: Do it today, for tomorrow might not come—a hard lesson he learned while apprenticing at his father's funeral home. In Undertaker's Son, the irrepressible Phelps gives advice that really matters, whether it's how to get getting ahead in business, make the right decision, or plan for the future. Here also is Phelps's plan for a better America in these contentious times. Brutally honest, inspirational and often humorous, Phelps's message will appeal to anyone seeking an edge in business or life.
This is the perfect gift for anyone who loves a turnaround story.
