My London based friend and fellow Heartosaurus Edouard Gheur, a.k.a. "Papa Spyk", has just published his book A Naughty Thing Called Life. He is a former professional rugby player and model who suffered a severe aortic dissection, dropping him onto his kitchen floor and into the dark side.
The story is colorful, raw, emotional, and uplifting. You feel for this guy as you read, and like my own book, it is clear that Spyk set out to write more than a rundown of his health condition and near death experience. This is a book that appeals to the masses and has a message that is veiled in a multitude of captivating themes. There are volatile issues and characters that guide you through a turbulent tale of professional sports, Hollywood, modeling, romance, birth, friendship and heartbreak.
