No Mad by Sam Moffie

Book Description: Racing home to share news of a long awaited book deal, Aaron Abrams unexpectedly finds his wife and beloved brother TOGETHER. Tossing a few mentionables into the car, along with his golden retriever, Churchill, his now only trustworthy lifelong companion, Aaron embarks on an odyssey like no other. With his own music as a backdrop, while guzzling his favorite Newman's Own Virgin Lemonade, Aaron begins in Youngstown, Ohio, travels interstate 80 in Pennsylvania, and continues into Gettysburg, Pa., Boston Ma., Roswell, NM., to name a few, ultimately ending his road trip in scenic Niagara Falls. Along the way, he continues to embrace each moment, every situation, all relationships and brief encounters. Never losing his zest for life, Aaron stays positive, upbeat and open for adventures, not letting his ex-wife-to-be interfere with his new found freedom, while at the same time rediscovering and recreating bonds that will never be broken. The game of Jinx has never gotten so much attention; what that means the reader is soon to discover.

A Little About the Author: A lifelong baseball fan, Youngstown, Ohio resident Sam Moffie graduated from Wittenberg University. He manages two sports bars, serving on the front lines of America’s most heated debate topics: sex, sports and politics. Sam has three children, one son-in-law, one granddaughter, two dogs, two cats and one strike-out at marriage.

My Thoughts: This book was entertaining and humorous, it had laugh out loud funny parts and serious parts. Mr. Moffie uses the soundtrack of the 70's to help narrate the story, well that just made me feel more like a part of the story. Mr Moffie did a great job developing his character's and was able to move from one character to the next without missing a beat. I thought it was a great book and men as well as women will love this book. It is very easy to read and will stay with you for along time. I give it 4 stars out of 5.


  1. This sounds like an interesting read. I love books that incorporate music.

  2. I thought the soundtrack thing was a nice touch! Great review!
