RESTORATION ROAD --The Master key to a New and Satisfied Life of Authenticity
By Mitch Kruse with Derek Williams

OVERVIEW: Like a classic car that needs restoration, each one of us must surrender our old basket case of a life to the Restorer who desires to return us to His original design. Restoration Road offers a raw and honest glimpse into the unique story of Mitch Kruse. Mitch's honest storytelling takes you step-by-step as he shares his tragedies, triumphs and truths about the wisdom he discovered along the way.

ENTREPRENEUR, AUTHOR, SPEAKER: For seventeen years, Mitch Kruse was owner, CEO, and auctioneer of Kruse International, the world's largest collector car sales organization. He led Kruse International to producing fifty annual events that reached millions of automotive enthusiasts across the globe, offering more than 15,000 collectible vehicles at public auction each year. Mitch has earned a Bachelor of Science Degree, a Master of Arts and Doctor of Religious Studies with high distinction.

MY REVIEW: Mitch Kruse drew me into the world of classic cars and auctioning. When I started reading this book I never dreamed I would be so interested in classic cars and especially auctioning. I have never wanted to sit through or be a part of any kind of auction. And what I know about classic cars is less than nothing. But I am interested in restoration. Restoration Road is about what the Bible teaches about restoration and how this affected the life of Mitch Kruse. I agree with Truett Cathy, founder of Chick-fil-A, who said, "Whether in marketplace or ministry, this book is a must read for anyone who desires to lead. I highly recommend it."Bobby Unser, world champion Indy car driver, said, "I recommend Mitch's book for the same reason that I chose him to auction my restored Nortion Spirit Penske/Cosworth that I drove to my third Indy win: he has a passion for excellence in everything he does." This book has some beautiful pictures of classic cars. And although this didn't mean a lot to me--it will be appreciated by classic car lovers. I recommend this book to all who are wanting to be restored to authenticity. Authenticity is the most valuable commodity in today's culture. Authenticity reflects the design of the Designer.

I picked this book up as well because I worked with my father who loves to restore old cars. This is one I can't wait to read but love your review on it. May have to take it with me to the hospital!

"...he has a passion for excellence in everything he does." Man, that's not an easy trait to cultivate, but it's so worth it, I keep trying!

Thanks for all the encouragement, Clif. I'm so honored to be in the 'favorites' circle! :-)
