Reading this material will take you back to a lot of your own memories and give YOU back to the basics of YOU

Author James Kelley unveils his deepest secret and most personal stories to bring inspiration in a new book published through Xlibris. More than just a self-help guide, What Are Wisdom and Intelligence: by an Average Jim chronicles the author’s journey through life’s most simple and valuable lessons to remember.

The author admits to not having a great life in the sense of being president, a star, or inventor. But he is aware that his is a life filled with joyous memories, difficult times, and worthwhile risks. While most books about life offer the do’s and don’ts in coping with major pitfalls, What Are Wisdom and Intelligence presents a witty guide on dealing with day-to-day dilemmas. It is especially written to cater to any average Joe’s problems as offered by someone who has already dealt with many of them. From dealing with kids and handling marriage, to celebrating Christmas and appreciating homemade hamburgers, to excelling in many different fields, and to appreciating nature and taking care of the environment, Mr. Average Joe, Kelley, provides sensible insights and practical solutions. He’s experiences included the Marine Corps, truck driving, cab company in the Rockies, working in the ranch field, restaurant work, and not to mention adventures like hitch hiking across our beautiful country.

“Reading this material will take you back to a lot of your own memories and give YOU back to the basics of YOU,” the author discloses in this release.

Aimed to help any individual find the wisdom and intelligence needed beyond classroom exams, What Are Wisdom and Intelligence: by an Average Jim is an entertaining and inspiring memoir of accepting life’s dramas with a positive outlook by using the simple things in life that save us all.

About the Author
“Life for me had a lot of drama per say but wasn’t terrible. Money and social status made my family’s problems a little more difficult at times. In some ways though, it made me a bit stronger in the long run. If I could change it, I suppose I would, but the “grass is always greener”, as some would say. Sometimes I wonder about what could have been, but it doesn’t change how they are. My thought would be, “why give yourself more stress than life already gives you”. There are a lot of moments in my life that could have been a lot worse, depending on the way I looked at them, and depending on how I reacted to them. I guess in a way what I did learn in life, was to look at life in the here and now, and not what was, or could be. A lot of different things I did in my life taught different degrees of this in different situations. Whether it be the Marines, my father, truck driving, or managing a restaurant, they all need you to focus on the here and now. Trust me; if you knew my father, you paid attention to what was going on when he was in the room.” – James Kelley
