Far more than just an autobiography, How Now, Norm’s Tao is an inspirational, insightful and deliciously humorous probing into the essential components of “the life welllived.” Along the way, Norm offers his legions of loyal fans “thirteen timeless core principles” that have guided and anchored his fascinating life’s journey–a baker’s dozen of pragmatic universal lessons that anyone, anywhere will find of significant value and compelling interest.
