The Why Café

My Inspiration

This book came about through a stream of conscious typing experience that lasted for twenty-one days. I’d just come back from a year of backpacking the world and something had opened within me. Something told me to sit down at my computer and start typing.
Luckily, I listened.

The inspirational #1 Bestseller, now translated into thirty-five languages.

In a small cafe at a location so remote it stands in the middle of the middle of nowhere, John-a man in a hurry-is at a crossroads. Intent only on refueling before moving along on his road trip, he finds sustenance of an entirely different kind. In addition to the specials of the day, the cafe menu lists three questions all diners are encouranged to consider.

Why are you here?
Do you fear death?
Are you fulfilled?

With this food for thought and the guidance of three people he meets at the cafe, John embarks on an incredible journey of self-discovery. It takes him from the executive suites of the advertising world, to the surf of Hawaii’s coastline. Along the way he discovers a new way to look at life, himself, and just how much you can learn from a green sea turtle.
