One Hit Wonder by Kevin R. Kehoe is an insightful memoir filled with nerve-wracking humor, significant life experiences, and a boatload of lessons that address various aspects of business and life. The author narrates his encounters with painful honesty and bares his soul about his life, business, two marriages, and fight with cancer.

The first of a family of six, Kevin Kehoe was raised in a responsible and traditional Irish Roman Catholic family. He weaves in stories about his formative years, friends, family, and business according to the theme of each chapter of this book. The author reveals his personality from these very intriguing stories alongside valuable life lessons learned. The book addresses mindset issues, business setbacks, life's mayhem, and some major societal ills we witness today. In conclusion, the author opens up about his fight with stage four cancer and shares his best approach to living life as it comes.

One Hit Wonder is a realistic, well-balanced, and eye-opening insight into this bumpy journey we call life. Kevin Kehoe did an incredible job linking his stories and life events to form this intriguing and relatable piece. They were a lot of valuable lessons that would remain relevant for ages to come. From amongst them, I draw my favorite, 'after almost seven decades of living on this planet, I've reached a simple conclusion: where we end up in life is rooted in the way we think about ourselves and the self-beliefs we hold to be true.' So I couldn't agree more with this statement.

I consider this author very brilliant with years of experience. In every chapter, there was always a lesson to draw out. I particularly liked the chapter labeled 'Sticks and Stones.' It addressed the issue of easy offense and people's fear of speaking the truth because of offending, which is the present stage in our world. The truth is hushed, and lies are painted in bright colors for everyone to celebrate. It's sad to say that I am sometimes guilty of this. However, the truth would always remain, regardless of my or your feelings. Also, I admire how the author approaches these stories with an honest, sarcastic, and humorous perspective.

I find this book relatable and a worthy re-read. There is so much value stashed within the pages that it is hard to dislike. However, there is one thing I disagreed with, which is when the author stated how a mother's behavior is the tell-tale sign of the daughter and father to the son. I believe it may appear valid, but not in all cases.

This book is professionally edited as I only encountered one error in it. Therefore, I rate One Hit Wonder 4 out of 4 stars.

I recommend this book to young people seeking to better their lives in the aspect of mindset, marriage, and business. This book will aid in reconditioning your mindset and set you on the path to success.

Fighting cancer is not easy, it requires a lot of money and encouraging the affected individuals. Thank you for your review
