This is a collection of David's essays, articles and blog posts, dealing with subjects from anxiety relief to self-doubt to everyday courage to masculine stereotypes. This is NOT a book designed to help those with severe psychological trauma, who need medical care.

This third book in the Rumble Strip series covers France, Italy and Switzerland. "Covers" is actually not an accurate word. "Samples" would be more like it. The road trip starts in Paris and swings through Brittany, the Loire Valley, Bordeau, Provence, Nice, Antibes, Cannes and Monaco, Rapallo, Pisa, Florence, Siena and Tuscany, Geneva and the Alps. Along the way, Gail and the Zig are so impressed with many of the spots they are wondering if they should just stop, put the car up on blocks, and stay for a while.
The book has been published in two versions. The one with black and white photographs includes the punctuation in the subtitle and the one with full-color photos regards the subtitle as more of a rhetorical question.
