Everyone has their own idea of what it means to have character. For Larry Cowsert, the concept was shaped by lessons he learned from his grandfather and others close to him. These lessons were so profoundly impactful that Cowsert decided to chronicle them here, in a captivating, easy-to-read book, so that others can learn from and use them to develop their own concepts of character. These aphorisms were funny, clever, provocative, and even harsh, but they captured the author’s attention and demanded thought. In these pages, the author refers to these "sayings" as lessons and, by using places, times and people in history shows the reader just how each can help improve and strengthen our own character.

About the author


Larry Cowsert is something of a renaissance man. Few people can say that they have:  helped develop a medical diagnostics application for long-duration, manned space flight AND ran an award-winning recording studio AND written business plans for over 100 unique businesses, including a drive-thru coffee shop,a criminal forensics laboratory, a couple of software companies, and a hardwood tree farm, just to name a few. Cowsert 's years in Fortune 500s and his independent consulting have helped to define his "big picture" views and forward-thinking actions. 

To say he has a broad range of experiences would be saying too little. When one considers that he is legally blind, his accomplishments become even more exceptional!

CHARACTER is his first retail book and he calls upon the experiences and insights he has gathered throughout his life to conjur thought-provoking "lessons" in being, having, and building character. Larry and his beautiful wife Michelle have been married for nearly 25 years and live in the St. Louis, Missouri area with their son, George.
