About The Book
It’s a Story for the Ages…
Boy does well.
Boy teeters on midlife crisis.
Boy moves to Florida, becomes a newspaper columnist and enlists the help of an exceptional supporting cast of over 100 VIPs to show him how to get his mojo back.
Show Me is a result of over 50 years of research: 50-plus years of living a life, 10 years of journaling about that life, and four years as a columnist writing about people who, at one time, Jones assumed lived a better life than he did.
In his battle against time, short attention spans and emotionally bereft modern technology, Jones wages an editorial war against pessimism by waving his journalistic flag in the promotion of creative thinking, positive communication, innovation, authenticity, respect and LAUGHTER.
Now, with the help of his treasured gallery of informants—starting with the influencers from his days as a showy-yet-sensitive, bunny-fearing Mid-Missouri youngster to his exploration of modern-day success—family man, entrepreneur and humorist Randall Kenneth Jones hopes to SHOW YOU what all of these extraordinary people so graciously SHOWED HIM.
Show Me showcases how to learn from your past, embrace your present, grow personally and professionally, laugh at yourself and banish mediocrity—by listening, learning and respecting the never-ending balance between ambition and tradition.
SHOW ME features interviews with PAT BENATAR, ERIN BROCKOVICH, BARBARA CORCORAN, CARL EDWARDS, KATHY GRIFFIN, JACK HANNA, JEFFREY HAYZLETT, HODA KOTB, GENERAL BARRY MCCAFFREY, COLIN MOCHRIE, WILLARD SCOTT, VANESSA WILLIAMS and over 100 more!
