John Nitti, a married father of four adult children, Yale University football captain and cum laude graduate was a player in the NFL before embarking on a decades-long business career in the executive ranks on Wall Street. His experience includes multibillion-dollar corporations where he has learned from high-powered executives. He remains active in his Long Island community, where he lives with his wife, Patricia. John has completed his new book “What Would Dad Say?”: a touching and invaluable resource for anyone seeking insight and perspective on the keys to a well-lived life.

“What Would Dad Say?” provides motivation and advice supported by stories relating to family, friendship, love, marriage, athletics, education, health, fitness, career planning, money, religion, and death. Rules of life were developed by author, John Nitti, based on years of experience in a multitude of settings from growing up in a diverse town on Long Island to Yale University. His background also includes time in the NFL and on Wall Street. He utilized his knowledge and experience to raise four successful children with his wife, Pat, and is now sharing that in this book.

Lessons learned from college professors to high-powered business executives, from well-known sports figures and team owners to entertainers, from ancient Greek philosophers to political leaders and from the very rich to the homeless are all shared. Evidence relating to everything from formulas for success to avoiding the pitfalls associated with regrettable failures provide helpful, practical examples. Life experiences and crossroads are shared in order to help others optimize their success and happiness.

The original target audience was solely John’s four children; he wanted them to understand his outlook on life and some keys to success and happiness just in case anything happened to him. His thoughts of mortality were reinforced after the death of a friend and then crystalized when his brother-in-law, firefighter Brian McAleese, died in the World Trade Center during the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. As Father Mychal Judge (the New York City Firefighters’ chaplain who died when the World Trade Center collapsed) said right before the attack, “If you want to make God laugh, tell him what you’re going to do tomorrow.”

While many of the rules are based on proven experiences, scientific evidence or specific facts are not provided in detail. There is plenty of research material that can always be referenced. There are also many books that are dedicated entirely to almost every subject that is addressed in only a single rule within these pages. But, What Would Day Say? is purposely simple and broad in order to cover a wide range of subjects and be memorable. It captures thoughts in the same way that one would be forced to answer on the spur of the moment, delivered in a casual conversational style.

One may lead a good life by following these simple rules. Some of the rules are obvious, but we all need to be reminded. Others are more intuitive. Still others would perhaps cause quite a debate regarding their validity. But they have worked. And just as children listen to some guidance and disregard the rest, so will anyone who reads this book adhere only to some of these rules and forget the others. For in the end, it’s their choice and their life. We can’t tell people what to do, but we can help them learn from experience and foresee the consequences of their actions. It is hoped “What Would Dad Say?” will provide that for you.

Published by Page Publishing, John Nitti’s engrossing book is a thought-provoking collection of guidelines for a life of happiness and fulfillment.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “What Would Dad Say?” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, ReaderHouse, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
