Chris Brady Releases New Book: PAiLS

Posted by Orrin Woodward on March 3, 2014

Chris Brady released his new book PAiLS at the LIFE Leadership Major Functions and it is already receiving rave reviews. Here is the Foreword I wrote for this powerful book helping anyone seeking to develop his/her game plan for the game of life.

Sincerely,

Orrin Woodward

Chris Brady: PAiLS

Chris Brady: PAiLS

When NY Times bestselling author and speaker Chris Brady notified me that he was sending a hardcopy of his latest book to me, I was intrigued.  For any time I read his works I find my mind expanded, my heart encouraged, and my resolve strengthened.  Although I have partnered with Chris for nearly twenty years, I still find myself marveling at Chris’s ability to communicate truth in a disarming fashion.  Further, he somehow does this while making everyone laugh hysterically.  Seriously, the only thing more fun than reading a Chris Brady book is having the privilege of sitting in the front row when he is speaking.

In any event, when I received the book, I devoured it in a matter of hours.  Thankfully, for me, no one was home, since there were several times when Chris brought me to tears – several times with his humor and other points with his poignancy.  If the reader has read Chris’s critically acclaimed book A Month of Italy, then he can relate to what I am saying.  Nonetheless, this book breaks new ground for the author as it addresses an important issue for today’s youth (and people of all ages, for that matter), namely, what is the best way to pursue one’s life goals and dreams?

In answering that question, Chris develops a framework for life and happiness that is both innovative and compelling.  In fact, Chris’s four-layer Ziggurat has become the basis for mentoring my own teenagers as they prepare for their journeys through life.  Starting with Preparatory Experiences and a Pragmatic Occupation, Chris then explains how these two layers can then be the foundation for chasing one’s Passionate Pursuit, culminating in fulfilling one’s Purposeful Calling. They say genius is the ability to make the complex seem simple.  Accordingly, the first chapter alone qualifies Chris for Mensa membership as he simplified one’s life into four layers that build upon one another.  Such insight is priceless.

Taking this information, I quickly reviewed in my mind the many people I have modeled, mentored, and studied to confirm the truthfulness of the life’s Ziggurat.  Every successful person utilizes the principles in this book whether they realize it or not.  Fortunately, with the writing of this book, Chris has provided the next-generation with a revolutionary approach to living that breaks down the half-truths and outright fallacies that hold people back from achieving their purpose in life.

Finally, when taking any advice in life, it is important to identify whether the person has “fruit on the tree” in the area he proposes to teach.  Having known Chris Brady since both of us were eighteen-year-old college kids, I have been blessed to watch Chris Brady build his life Ziggurat.  From his preparatory experiences in motor-cross racing to his pragmatic career as an engineer, Chris laid the foundation necessary to pursue his passion.  Indeed, after eight to ten hour workdays, Chris progressively developed mastery in the fields of writing, speaking, and leading.

After five years of toiling in anonymity, Chris broke into the mainstream with a string of bestselling books (having sold over a million copies in seven languages) and speaking engagements around the world in front of tens-of-thousands of people.  Moreover, he has supported numerous charitable works through his board position in All Grace Outreach Ministries.  In addition, Chris, and his lovely wife Terri Brady are nurturing parents to four entrepreneurially minded children.  To wrap up, I believe the best teachers model before they message, and Chris Brady’s life has authentically modeled the message he illuminates here.

    Orrin,

    Thanks for this compelling write up of Chris’ book. I thoroughly enjoyed “A Month of Italy” and I am sure this book will be just as enjoyable and educationally. I am going to see if I can do like you and read it through in a matter of hours. I have never read a book in one sitting. However, based on your commentary of the book, I’m encouraged to try.

    Looking forward to reading this book! As a young man still expanding my Preparatory Experiences, I know that building a large base will lead to the potential for larger layers higher up!

    I’m about halfway through PAiLS… It’s awesome so far! It’s definitely one of those books that had me thinking, “I wish I would have had this book 10 years ago.”

  7. Anthony Nieto said

    I totally agree Orrin! Chris has a gift of teaching through humor and wisdom like no other person I’ve heard. His work is fun and thought provoking.

    I can’t wait to read the book as “The layer cake concept” is one of my favourites. It will be a “must” read for so many people.

  9. Tina Abernathy said

    Got started on this book on our way to Operation Advance this weekend and I am enjoying it already. Can’t wait to pass it on to all three of my children as they have already listened to the Life as a Layer Cake CD.

    Changing Lives in our lifetime through LIFE!!

    AaaaaaaOooooo

    HI …

    I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT CHRIS BRADY IS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS WHY I AM STILL PART OF THIS COMMUNITY …

    EVERY TIME I HEAR A RECORDING FROM CHRIS BRADY I FEEL LIKE HE REALLY WANTS ME TO BE A BETTER PERSON … IN ORDER TO HELP MAKE A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD …

    FOR EXAMPLE ” COURAGE IS EARNED ” IS AN AUDIO THAT SPEAKS DIRECTLY TO MY HEART …

    CHRIS BRADY IS A GREAT LEADER AND HAS GREAT MENTORS TOO …

    O, we were able to see Chris & Terry live in Waco, Tx, he covered part of this subject there. I love how Chris reframes things in a way to help me in my life. He truly is a master teacher and if this book is half as good as his others, it will be tremendous.

  14. Elizabeth Sieracki said

    Sounds like he did it again! Can’t wait to read it!

  15. Trent Crane said

    Chris Bradys’ unique ability to teach by mixing his creativity and humour is truly amazing.

  16. Chad Waters said

    Hi Orrin,

    Chris Brady has been given a gift that he doesn’t hold back and continues to share with the world be he wants to and not because he has to. Selfless leaders like Chris and yourself will change the world.

    Looking forward to reading this next book as it comes in!

    God Bless
    Chad

  17. Thanks Orrin for the great write-up! I appreciate it, and hope people enjoy the book.
