My Cup Runneth Over

A few weeks ago, a young web designer named Daniel Gurtner (whom I don’t know and have never met), bought my book, “I’m OK—You’re Not: The Message … [and so on].” Out of the goodness of his heart, Daniel then made the below, which is my first ever book video. Built by a fan! For [Read More…]
