Very readable The rarest quality I know is common sense. His book is full of it. I couldn’t recommend it more highly to young and old. Read more
Andrew
A wonderful collection A wonderful collection of stories gleaned from 50+ years of life experience. The author writes from the heart - and his humor, sensibility, humility and genuine nature shines through each chapter. His love for his family and friends is clearly felt as he forms his values and searches for meaning for the benefit of his children, and ultimately, each reader. One can't help but feel a bit more empowered to handle what life throws at us, knowing we're not alone in the journey. Read more

Valuable Wisdom This book could not have come at a better time for me and my two boys. Thanks to the marvels of modern communication, social media, the fathomless internet, on-demand access to every work of music, literature and film/video ever created, we are drowning in content but thirst for wisdom. Our children are particularly vulnerable as the world finds more effective and pernicious ways to pour messaging into their brains, crowding out the bandwidth historically reserved to parents and good teachers. (As I write this, the news is likening social media's attempts to program the young with big tobacco's efforts to addict them years ago.) We struggle to invest our children with the timeless wisdom our parents and grandparents bequeathed to us. This book lays out life's important lessons in easy to digest chapters. The author uses relatable examples drawing from sports, entertainment, business and his own rich life experience. Give this wonderful book to your adolescent and young adult children. They will treasure its wisdom and your thoughtfulness. Read more

Accumulated Insight Stuart's book is wisely written. He is a man of character, conviction and possess a sense of discipline that is commendable. Most importantly, it will serve as a template for his children in later life. -John Read more

50 for 50 Fifty invaluable insights from the author's 50 years of life. Serious where needed and funny when appropriate. The author's mission is to share his accumulated life wisdom thus far with his two children but.... this book takes his insight far beyond his kids and all the way to you and me for our own benefit and to share with our own children. Great stories, both personal and from the world of athletes and entertainers, bring his insights to life in vivid color making them sticky and unforgettable in our minds. Great gift for family, friends, clients, colleagues, etc... Enjoy!! Read more
MILES
Full of great nuggets Accumulated Insight has so many great nuggets to digest yourself and share with your kids and others. The chapters are short and sweet so it's the kind of book you could read as a family, even discussing a specific insight over dinner. I also love Valentine's humility, sharing some recommended practices that he's still working on himself. Thank you for a great, enjoyable resource! Read more
John
Invaluable I wish my father had sat me down and offered up these life lessons in such a direct, straight-forward manner. In fact, after finishing this book, I took out a pad and started writing down my own parables for my daughters who will start college next year. I hope Mr. Valentine inspires others! Read more
