From Coal Dust to Gold Dust: The Journey of a Miner's Son (Book) - 3/21/2011 11:10:05 PM
I know the author and approached the book with some trepidation given that relationship. I needn't have worried as I thoroughly enjoyed the book on a number of levels.
It is a good story and well written but it also has some terrific lessons about life and how to live it. The author by his own admission had no great ambitions but by accepting the challenges and grabbing the opportunities he fashioned a great life...one he could never have envisaged when he started down the path.
I think thats a great lesson and one most people would benefit from...bite of more than you can chew and chew like hell!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Ken's book, as did my husband. I particularly enjoyed the way in which Ken detailed the characters whom he has met. I laughed when some were described and could relate them to friends and foes of my own. It was a very interesting journey into an amazing array of work situations and associated dilemmas. Ken's book drew me in, I became very unproductive and managed to devoured it in 2 days. Thank you Ken and congratulations to you.

Coal Dust to Gold DustĒ is a must read book. From cover to cover, Kenís journey had me intrigued every step of the way. His story is both interesting and inspiring and I found it difficult to put the book down. The depth of experience Ken has achieved in his years is brought to life brilliantly. 10/10.

Where do we go from here? (Article) - 1/25/2012 7:29:16 AM
Ken, I am so glad to see someone like yourself with the guts to ask the right questions. We have a dificult fight, you and people like you and myself. I too have the fear that the current attack on the virtues of what we used to refer to as 'capitalism-the free market society' has become synonomous with greed and what seems to be a system to short circuit government. But is it really? does the so-called socialistic need for its own sake poison the free market with regulation so insideous as to be another form of greed and ever increasing need for funds for the single idea of fostering what puports to be the good of all its citizens.So much so that borrowing for the greater good is the only mantra that will be listened to.?
There is a great fight brewing; the question is how will the fight be joined without the spilling of innocent blood? I hope that people such as yourself and me can bring some insight to the fray and find some way to allow us all to return to government with values and business with integrity. I salute you sir, you are not alone. D. Kenneth Ross.
