"As a rallying cry, Ditchfield’s book has some thoughtful observations about helping developing countries with a “hand up” instead of a “hand out”. The book will inspire readers to want to do their part to become better citizens of the world, so they have an answer to Noel Cunningham’s endless query, “What have you done for the world today?”

Synopsis

Part inspirational rallying call, part first-person, autobiographical narrative, part eulogy for a treasured friend and mentor, "Life's Too Short for Leftovers" takes the reader on a highly personal journey of self-discovery. 
Best-selling author Michael Ditchfield's  Life's Too Short for Leftovers - cleverly presented as courses on a menu - conveys a singular perspective on what it means to be human, and what is required of us as individuals to be active, engaged participants in humanity. With delightfully dry wit and profound understanding, Ditchfield introduces us to Chef Noel Cunningham - his guide and teacher - along with a kitchen-full of congenial and extraordinarily noble real-life protagonists that have served as both lightning rods and light posts in the author's relentless (albeit sometimes reluctant) pathway toward personal transformation. 

Ditchfield is a master storyteller, and his conversational style skillfully relates timeless philosophies to contemporary challenges and opportunities that face Third World countries today. Based on his extensive experience in Africa, Ditchfield brings a generous portion of lucid insights and aha moments to the table, leading the charge toward improved, positive outcomes - in our own lives, and in the lives of others. Life's Too Short for Leftovers is a stimulating and memorable must-read for students of life.
