New book "Now...Build a Great Business!"
Dick Hardwick: Received an honorary degree from Westfield University.
Comedian/Entertainer Dick Hardwick was celebrated at a recent performance with an honorary Doctor of Performance Degree! Dick was totally surprised by the presentation before his show at Westfield State University in Massachusetts. The inscription reads: (shortened by me, Katrina)
Richard John Hardwick
Master of the spotlight and stand-out among stand-up’s,
You take the high road to comedy and never fail to make us laugh.
Whether headlining for families at Disneyland
Landing one-liners for troops in Iraq
Or punctuating the punchlines for corporate executives
You model the hard-working life of the professional entertainer
Who is ever willing to be there for an appreciative audience.
More on Guy's book in future posts.

Louis Zamperini: Laura Hillenbrand's book about his life, Unbroken, has maintained a steady #3 on Amazon's bestseller list since it was released.

Since Laura Hillenbrand, the author of previous best-seller Seabiscuit, does not do personal appearances, Louie is traveling to all book publicity events as well as private speaking engagements.
