About the Book

International Book Award Finalist
ForeWord Book of the Year Finalist

Jim Higley was a forty-year-old bobblehead. Just like those collectible figurines with oversized, bouncy heads, he’d put on a smiling face and bobble through his hectic, overflowing days.

Higley’s bobbling came to a screeching halt with the diagnosis of cancer, surgery, and a summer of healing. More than a cancer story, however, Bobblehead Dad puts you in a front row seat as the author discovers the illuminating parallels between events in his childhood and his adulthood.

Higley, whose parenting stories appears in Men’s Health magazine and the Huffington Post, unwraps poignant lessons from his family history with rich, vivid detail. His story reveals meaning in simple moments and the people who fill them-including the surprise discovery of his most important lesson, which had been quietly waiting for over thirty years.

Written in an informal but eloquent style, Bobblehead Dad keeps you laughing, crying and-most importantly-thinking. Higley’s distinctive storytelling rhythm, combined with a knack for handling heavy topics with an embraceable voice, quickly draws you into his experiences-while launching you on your own journey of self-discovery and reflection.
