Synopsis

An inspirational account of one dads extraordinary journey through cancer, fatherhood, and several forgotten life lessons--and the discovery of one life-changing gift.Jim Higley was a forty-year-old bobblehead. Just like those collectible figurines with oversized, bouncy heads, hed put on a smiling face and bobble through his hectic, overflowing days.Higleys bobbling came to a screeching halt with the diagnosis of cancer, surgery, and a summer of healing. More than a cancer story, however, Bobblehead Dad puts you in a front row seat as the author discovers the illuminating parallels between events in his childhood and his adulthood. Higley, whose weekly fatherhood column appears in the Chicago Tribunes TribLocal, unwraps poignant lessons from his family history with rich, vivid detail. His story reveals meaning in simple moments and the people who fill them--including the surprise discovery of his most important lesson, which had been quietly waiting for over thirty years.Written in an informal but eloquent style, Bobblehead Dad will keep you laughing, crying and--most importantly--thinking. Higleys distinctive storytelling rhythm, combined with a knack for handling heavy topics with an embraceable voice, quickly draws you into his experiences--while launching you on your own journey of self-discovery and reflection.
