Why Cafe

John P. Strelecky

Perseus Books Group,  April 2006

The international publishing phenomenon that can change your life -- translated into more than a dozen languages.

In a small diner at a location so remote that it stands in the middle of the middle of nowhere, John -- a man in a hurry -- is at a literal and figurative crossroads. Intent only on refueling before moving along on his road trip, John finds sustenance of an entirely different kind. In addition to the specials of the day, the menu lists three questions that all diners are encouraged to consider:

Why are you here?

Do you fear death?

Are you fulfilled?

With this food for thought and the guidance of three people he meets at the cafe, John embarks on a journey of self-discovery that takes him from the executive suites of the advertising world to the surf of Hawaii's coastline. Along the way, he discovers a new way to look at life and relationships . . . and just how much you can learn from a green sea turtle.
