Be prepared to buckle-up and enjoy this ride! This book is the first tell it like it is, of its kind!

Why is it so difficult to tell the truth? Jason Vines starts this book with a simple question: why is it so difficult to tell the truth? Sadly, spoiler alert, he ends it with the same question.

From Richard Nixon to Bill Clinton to Lance Armstrong to the IRS to Brian Williams to Bill Cosby to Tiger Woods and the NFL; why is it so painfully difficult?

Vines cautions the reader up-front: “Relax, this is not a book about Jesus. However, he does appear in two chapters: first as a Hispanic grandfather from Waterford, Michigan, and later as the real Prince of Peace. No, this is a book about my life in the public relations blast furnace in the automotive industry; a quickly-derailed attempt to help a friend rebuild Detroit’s tattered image, thwarted by the sex, lies and corruption of former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick; and, finally, trying to avoid another crisis with the number one selling book of all time. No, not Harry Potter; the Bible.”
