About the Author

At the age of 50, Michael McCafferty sold his software company, and in the process traded the stressful life of an entrepreneur for the life he had so long imagined. This included exotic cars, fantasy homes, and his beautiful open-cockpit biplane. This period of 7 years was filled with many extraordinary experiences, and this book tells the true story of the best of them. That life of conspicuous consumption and outrageous behavior is now over, traded for a life of helping others, and as an advisor to entrepreneurs. 100% of the profits from the sale of this book are donated to research for a cure to paralysis due to spinal cord injury, currently Rutgers University's Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience - The Spinal Cord Injury Project. Michael McCafferty lives in Del Mar, California. Email: Website:
