Book Summary

One Hit Wonder is a remarkable memoir that delivers life lessons with page-turning humor and irreverence. As the grandson of Irish immigrants and the eldest of six, Kevin Kehoe survived Catholic school, two marriages, job terminations, motorcycle crashes, and entrepreneurial highs and lows. When he received a cancer diagnosis near the end of a successful business career, he found himself confronting his mortality and thinking about the meaning of success and the power of friendship and love.

An absorbing read that shows a risk-taking maverick, driven by Catholic guilt, managing the craziness, comedy, and adversity of life. A series of “aha” moments lead from one major life transition to the next. One of the highlights of the book is the author’s daredevil stunt on the slopes of Mt. Fuji.
