We took risks at high speeds that could have gotten us killed, but the risk was more than half the fun.

Fast cars, freedom and fun—these are the four words that Greg Phillips would use to describe growing up in a small Midwestern community during the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

For Greg Phillips, these words encapsulate a lifetime that is worth looking back on. In “Surviving the 70s,” Phillips recounts a life lived in the fast lane.

“I wanted to present you with a glimpse of life as it was for me growing up in a small Midwestern town in Indiana,” Phillips said.

Through Phillips’ words, readers will enjoy a vividly painted picture of his life—a life full of great risk, friendship, family and fun. He recalls his experiences with racing cars, sports, pranks, outdoor adventures, family business, and cruising the streets on summer nights.

Phillips has embraced life with great energy and spirit, and he has brought this same high-octane perspective to “Surviving the 70s”.

“We took risks at high speeds that could have gotten us killed, but the risk was more than half the fun,” Phillips said. “It’s that spirit I wanted to bring out in this book. Life is nothing without taking risks, and it’s worth remembering that none of us get out alive anyway.”
