Life-altering choices are made by the flip of a switch. If you lose focus, determination, or forget early lessons, you may not like your destination. One should never look at a successful person and judge them by what they have attained. We should first determine the length traveled and how they negotiated the forks in the road. Using an uncanny memory of events, trends, and people, the author allows us to sail alongside and truly see what he sees. He takes us back to the best of times - our childhoods. He describes the things that shaped our lives with magnificent detail. Switches places a humorous twist on life's events while motivating us to think before we move. It also celebrates the individuals who flip switches on our behalf because they ultimately change our lives. The one thing that it does not do is throw individuals under the bus in order to paint a poignant picture! This is not your everyday boys from the block story!
