The author started writing "The Best Ideas I've Ever Heard" the year his first three grandchildren were born a month apart. He was looking for a legacy he could leave that would be useful to them. What resulted is a book of ideas and observations about life that should be useful to anyone. He presents these ideas through a hundred short essays. More than anything, the author argues that life is limited in time and space, so we should approach life's journey thoughtfully, and live our lives intentionally. He recommends having goals, seeking moral guidelines and being kind to everyone we meet on this journey we call life.
