In Doing More with One Life, best-selling author Piasecki welcomes the reader into his home, revealing the heart-breaking early death of his father, and his deep respect and love for the women in his life, especially his mother, who devoted her life to her children, both foster and biological. He explores the life-shaping moments in his personal history and imagines what is to come next in a series of well-wrought vignettes.
Piasecki's upbringing was laced with poverty and trauma. He began reading at an early age, seeking out the wisdom and relevance from the "magical clan of writers" who helped him strengthen his writing muscle and feed into his creative hunger. Bruce's journey to becoming a writer is spiritual and practical, as he discovers and uncovers what is truly valuable in a life. As well as being a writer, Piasecki is also an environmentalist, a speaker on climate and society, and AHC Group founder. He has also founded the family-endowed Creative Force Foundation.
Doing More with One Life can be read as biography, or inventive memoir, or even as magical realism. Piasecki leaves that choice up to his reader. Readers and followers of Piasecki's expansive career in environmental and community issues will be deeply moved by his tales of loss and his determination to make himself--and his world--into something profoundly better.
