Joe O’Connor’s Mother Knows Best - The NEW Story of Notre Dame relates a story of Notre Dame never told, from Father Hesburgh to fat Eddie, the towel man at the Rock. This new story of Notre Dame describes how university life lives far longer than four years on a field of play much bigger than a Catholic college campus. Readers will find nearly one hundred heroes and heroines from all walks of life, those who endure through the principles they lived as they continue to serve others before themselves.

The ending will shock readers like The Sting and is followed by a real-life miracle since Mother Knows Best - The NEW Story of Notre Dame, is non-fiction with elements of elasticity. Physically, this is not a big book, an hour’s read, but it is big on substance, imagination and the sincerity and commitment of every character for every reader; the author, too. As best described by Ara Parseghian, “It is a small book with great thought.”

This book will elicit emotion. It will make readers laugh out loud and will never bore them, because it will seem like the characters are speaking directly to them; as they did to the author.
