Bryan Adams got his first six-string when Beaudoin got his first red bicycle, a toy of emancipation for the frontman and the young boy. Beaudoin takes us through the meanders of his personal and occupational adventures. The book transcends an individual experience into a collective one, that of the Canadian people: with its solidarity instinct to be felt during the 1998 winter ice storm, its entrepreneurship talents: Beaudoin was successively sailor, pilot, farmer, mechanic, bank employee, ...more

An extremely interesting and fascinating read. We can all relate to Mr. Beaudoin's stories. I've had few adventures in my own life that Phil reminded me of. The farm, the sky and trying to stay out of trouble but always seemingly in it. Ya, my pants got warmed a number of times. Oh well, that's what being a kid is all about.

Fun times, serious times, school, dating, falling in love and raising two kids. All while I was going to university three nights a week and teaching full time days. Yep,

I thoroughly enjoyed as it was very nostalgic for me growing up in the same era. It was an easy read and you wanted to read on. I liked the comparison to the Bryan Adam's song. I do think there is another book in there. Also, being a neighbour for 30 years, I remember a lot of the antidotes that Phil brought up! Keep writing.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. It reminds me that everyone is on a journey and it isn't over until the last chapter is penned.

Philip Beaudoin lives in Eastern Ontario with his wife, family and friends. The author has the gift of being a true storyteller. He was born in 1958 which gives him years of stories to share. His storytelling tone captures your imagination with charm and humor. His altruistic nature has lent itself nicely to his storytelling ability.
