A Book on Finding Happiness Every Day -- to be Released June 1, 2011
Steve Kapelonis and his wife, Elena, founded the original Pump Energy Food Restaurant in 1997, which became known for its high-profile and celebrity clientele. YES, the food was delicious. But it wasn't just the food that inspired many New Yorkers to eat at The Pump five or six days a week, sometimes two or three times a day; it was also the ENERGY!

"Running restaurants was like 'on-the-job training' for me on how to help people STAY IN THE MOMENT. I had to learn how to be a coach," says Steve. "Why? Because people work better when they feel good and because people love their food more when they're happy."
Here is that same ENERGY IN A BOOK ABOUT HAPPINESS -- with a QUIRKY MONOLOGUE, a TRUE-TO-LIFE DIALOGUE, and FIFTY-ONE CARTOONS THAT CAN PICK YOU UP, ONE PART OF YOUR DAY A TIME.
"But I always have an idea in my head that keeps me going...that getting delicious food to the customers no matter what obstacles get in the way is like an art form. And true happiness at the end of the meal is when everybody gets exactly what they want."
