His latest is Be Who You Are ($11.61), in which he writes, "When I was growing up in a small town in Wyoming, I felt like I didn't fit in. The other kids were interested in sports, but I wasn't. For my fourth-grade class photo, I wore a clip-on tie and purple sunglasses because I thought it was cool, but nobody else did. It was hard for me to learn to read and follow along in class. So, I was always trying to figure out how to fit in and be like everyone else. Finally, I realized it's easier and more fun to just BE WHO YOU ARE." <3
