What a great way to spend 90 minutes of my life! A person giving a copy of this book to another will be sharing a great and long lasting gift, lifting both the depressed and distressed as well as adding perspective to the happy and well-to-do. Every coffee-table, bedside locker and boardroom should have one. Nothing in life is truly complex, and this book confirms that: just as night follows day. Well done Tony … and thanks. PS I’ll try to remember each day to breathe well and create space! Peadar Duffy, Chairman, Risk Management International

Tony Spollen’s 50 Great Lessons from Life is a wonderful book.  I was immediately engrossed in the simplicity and practicalities in each lesson. I just couldn’t put the book down. I wanted to know more and more. Some lessons seemed like common sense, but when l saw it before me in print, the reality dawned on me that anything is possible, and practically any situation can be overcome. I know l have a better outlook on life after reading Tony’s book, and look and deal with situations that arise in my everyday life in a totally different way. Tony’s personal experiences in life shine through in this book, and his honesty is palpable. Aileen Lawlor, President, The Camogie Association

Tony Spollen has written a wonderfully short book of simple, timeless truths for a better life, both professional and personal. There are memorable stories used that convey the lesson intended but its most endearing quality is its brevity and no nonsense style. The book teaches you nothing, but you learn a lot! It’s a super book.  Danny McCoy, Director General, IBEC

This is a book that has a little piece of wisdom for everyone, both young and old. But what I like most about 50 GREAT LESSONS FROM LIFE is its authenticity. I’ve only gotten to know Tony over the past 36 months, but as I recall our many conversations, they are smattered with advice and messages that form part of this book. Tony is not only an author who is good with words; he practices what he preaches. Fergus Condon, Partner, Grant Thornton

Just as a good whiskey, usice beatha, the water of life, needs to be distilled three times, so you have distilled your wisdom in this book to give us the spirit of life. Sláinte agus saol. Fergus Cahill
