The Adventures of Binder-Man (Paperback)Don Kuhl (author)
- Not available
From the founder of The Change Companies comes a collection of life lessons, true stories, and embarrassing self-disclosures illuminating how small choices made each day can create joy, meaning, and lasting change.
While to-do lists and failed resolutions discourage people from believing that change is possible, Binder-Man (in full cape and with four-color graphics!) proves that change really isn't all that difficult and that sometimes it begins with just a simple step--or a series of missteps.
Binder-Man was born over twenty years ago when the multimillion-dollar Change Companies was just a start-up, developing their signature brand of interactive journals. In those long early days, the staff spent hours on end filling orders by monotonously placing pages into three-ring binders. Hoping to bring much-needed comic relief to his team, company owner Don Kuhl morphed into the eccentric character of Binder-Man, complete with flowing cape and red earmuffs. The spirit of Binder-Man was contagious and The Change Companies thrived, selling more than 20 million journals worldwide.
Based on his years igniting change in others, Kuhl shares brief, engaging narratives on a variety of eclectic topics--the significance of navel-gazing, leaking toilets, tattooed strangers, and a frog named Apples. With humor, honesty, and the essential principles of behavior change, Kuhl invites readers on a highly pictorial and enlightening adventure, inspiring them to make emotional, spiritual, and physical changes in their own lives, and opening a great new world of opportunity and joy.

"If you can't read, you'll enjoy the graphics that tell a story. If you can read, you'll be entertained and enlightened. If you read with your heart, you'll be touched, moved and inspired."
-David Mee-Lee, MD, Psychiatrist and Chief Editor
"With humility, tenderness and an astonishing vulnerability, Don Kuhl delivers healing and hope. Binder-Man carries the glue that will put Humpty-Dumpty back together again."
-Roy H. Williams, Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestselling author of The Wizard of Ads trilogy
"Don's lessons and stories provide me with a time-out that teaches and inspires me. Many times my day has changed direction through a suggestion or a reminder of what is important in life. I have often been moved to action. This is the gift of a true writer."
-Sharon Wegscheider-Cruse, author, family therapist
"Don's lifelong lessons about change are a uniquely fun look at how he changed himself, is helping to change the world and inspires readers to change themselves."

"This is a book of great wisdom, perspective and humor...traits Binder-Man has no doubt passed on to his friends and family (especially his favorite daughter)."
-Kate Calhoon, PsyD, Licensed Psychologist
"Don Kuhl has spent decades developing helpful materials to put into the hands of clients--print materials that are easy to read, graphically appealing and simple--in a sophisticated way. In this book he shares some of his own inspirational story, presented with the colorful pictoral style for which The Change Companies has become famous. It is replete with engaging snapshot life stories, and with the joys, regrets and wisdom that accumulate with years of searching sobriety."
-William R. Miller, Ph.D. Emeritus Distinguished
"Don's stories are amazing. I often feel as if I grew up in his town and his shoes. He helps me appreciate myself with simplicity and humor, much like Mark Twain."
-Joseph R. Cruse, MD, Addiction Medicine Special
"I'll never forget the maiden voyage of Binder-Man--that red-caped silhouette streaking across the parking lot, the shocked neighboring business owners. Over the next 20 years of the company, Binder-Man would ride again (and again!)."
-Susan Peterson, Senior Editor of The Change Companies
