Some of the most talented, most creative people in the world have the most fascinating backgrounds. It’s part of what makes them so creative in the first place!
Based on some of the stories about his earlier life that he told me, during the time we spent together as a creative team, the book should make for a great read… I have no doubt it will be extremely well written.
Hope it’s going well Jack.

Jack, enjoy the sabbatical. Have you negotiated the film rights?

Congratulations Jack! It’s great when a person can walk away to do something they are passionate about. You do it with your paintings and now a book! You are an inspiration to us all. I hope your book is about communications business… you certainly have enough material to write more than one book!

Good for you Jack, I truly look forward to reading about how this turns out.

Having had the pleasure of working with Mr.Neary, I can say that a book simply containing his characteristic off-the-cuff quips would be entertainment on its own.

Best of luck!

Enjoy the break… and I look forward to reading the section on all the great professional wrestlers from Alberta you interviewed early in your writing career.

Best of luck Jack! I just read an amazing book by another ex-ad guy, Lou Quattro.

A riveting piece of fiction that looks at the influence of the mafia, or cosa nostra, in the most unlikely of settings, Tuscany.

Written with unparalleled insight and italian flare, I couldn’t put it down.
Check out Amazon.

I can’t wait for your book Jack!
