I am a very lucky man, and I was a very lucky boy. My childhood was great. My parents were smart, caring and supportive.

My dad taught me many things, and I believe that the most important thing he did for me was that he encouraged me to read. Any book I ever mentioned was soon in my hands. If I mentioned a topic, he'd find a book to mirror it. He wanted me to read, read, read!

In fact, he still sends me books, articles and other bits of lit to this day.

What does your Dad do for you?
