Jack Kamen was born in 1913 above his father's harness shop in Brownsville, a Yiddish-speaking section of Brooklyn. He brings that lost world to life in this humorous, heartwarming, historical collection of family stories with universal appeal.

Jack bares all as he reveals secrets of the Enchanted Outhouse, the Mysterious Yeshiva Fire, and the Great Thanksgiving Fraud.

Learn why Jack was in the Oval Office one month and jail the next...why Uncle Youssel sold his soul...and how Jack saved his hide when the Manhater's Club discovered him eavesdropping.

Jack's greatest secret--his formula for health, happiness, and longevity--is hidden in every story. It's his attitude, and it's contagious.

Grandpa's Stories

Your grandfather might have told you stories like these...and he would have told them this way: personal, short, and ending with a twist.

Take a peek at the sample stories "Enchanted Outhouse," "Important Man," or "The Coat."

Each Heirloom Story stands on it's own; but together, they support and reinforce each other. You may notice themes throughout the book: 

bulletPoverty-to-presidency
bulletHealth from happiness, not medicines
bulletHappiness from helping family members
bulletHappiness from work and accomplishment
bulletSmart planning: pride when it works, laughter when it backfires
bulletLoving acts, done naturally...the words aren't necessary

Even if you don't notice the themes, you'll feel them, and they'll affect you. That's why we say "Read it...catch it...pass it on."

You'll pass the attitude on to everyone you meet. When you give a copy of the book to another, it starts the chain in them.
