The Longest Leap - Dr. Greg Bell's new book is out now!

From Dr. Bell:

I have just published a book entitled "THE LONGEST LEAP". The book is an autobiography which chronicles an improbably long leap from the chicken house of my childhood to Olympic gold and beyond. It also urges the reader to refrain from letting the limits of one's present view be the limits of one's possibilities.

I believe this book is unique in that it contains original sketches of the people and events that were instrumental in helping to shape my life. I have also included selections of my original poetry where they emphasize or augment a specific topic in the story.

At the present, I am the sole distributor of the book. To purchase this book, or any of my previous books, please contact me. My email address is gold56@comcast.net, or you may call (574) 753-3231 to order.

Greg Bell delivers motivational talks on a variety of topics.

What others have said:

"His unique specialty is a recitation of Paul Laurence Dunbar's dialect poetry. Greg's presentations create word paintings on the canvas of your mind and transports you to the time and places of which Dunbar writes."

- Hallie Bryant: author of "Hallie's Comet: Breaking the CODE"
