The compilation of advice, wisdom, and Hail Mary Moments is a collection of amazing quotes and stories from the biggest names in entertainment and beyond.

United States, 28th Jan 2024, King NewsWire – Paul Salfen, the veteran TV host, producer, writer, and editor, has compiled a collection of amazing stories and pointers from some of the most notable people in film, music, sports, business, and current events that’s meant to educate, entertain, and inspire.

With a foreword by legendary NFL player and Hall of Famer, Drew Pearson – Salfen’s co-host for 11 years on the Drew Pearson Show, Drew Pearson Live, and The Ultimate Hail Mary, the book is full of advice, wisdom, and “Hail Mary Moments,” a term coined by the pair when they would ask guests about the moment in their life or career where they just had to go for it. Pearson caught the original Hail Mary pass in 1975 that has since become a pop culture term. The former Dallas Cowboys great gave Salfen a job when he threw a Hail Mary and asked to be on the show out of nowhere. Pearson decided to give Salfen a shot and the rest is history as millions have enjoyed these clips on FOX Sports, ABC, KTXD, Comcast SportsNet, and online. Salfen has also written and edited for top publications and has made appearances on every major network and some international appearances.

The book features a wide range of top talent like Tom Cruise, Metallica, Mike Tyson, Sir Richard Branson, Mark Cuban, Buzz Aldrin, Beyonce, Tyler Perry, deadmau5, Garth Brooks, Ice Cube, and the late Larry King, amongst hundreds of others. Their insight, cautionary tales, and encouragement makes it a suitable pick for a personal or professional gift, textbook curriculum, a library read, or a coffee table staple.

There’s something for everyone in there of any age or background and certainly many names are known by just about anyone regardless of their interests or fandom. It has gained early interest from retail stores, schools, libraries, conferences, and media.

“This book has taken years out of my life but if I’ve inspired anyone and given them inspiration to keep going then it was all worth it,” Salfen says. After giving a speech at the Barack Obama Male Leadership Academy at the request of his friend Trammell S. Crow, Salfen and the teachers there noticed a particular perking up of the students when hearing about the drive and determination of their heroes and knowing that no one had a golden path to fame – and usually not fortune, either – that there was a chance for them to share their talents with the world, too. That coupled with some of the best and most inspiring content of his hitting the cutting room floors of the shows and publications, the author took it upon himself to get every bit of inspiration out there as a gift to the world. Many of the stories and words of wisdom and encouragement have already been picked up, shared, and served as a light to creatives that needed to hear what was being said – but now it’s time for everyone to get a chance to get inspired and find themselves “going for it” in the new year.

Salfen is planning a book launch party in Dallas, Texas in January and it will be followed by a tour with appearances and speeches across the country. The book will be available next month on Amazon and in retail stores and bookstores across the country.
