A few final remarks from me. I had intended to write down a few thoughts as bullet points, by hand. Loving advice from a father to his children. One day, after all, he won't be there any longer. Just one or two suggestions, and tips on how to take charge of their lives. But my bullet points turned into lines. And each line became a page, and the pages were transformed over time into a book. The book is called On the Highway of Life, and it is a self-help guide for teenagers and young adults. Easy to understand, open, honest, and timeless in its approach, it aims to support those individuals who need to establish their priorities in life. Its author is a husband and a father, in the middle of his life, writing about life, for life! Born 1971, in Halle an der Saale (Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany) Background in agriculture, as trainee, student, researcher and now professional Husband and father, friend and author
