Praise for Break Out of Your Box
"I had the great honor of working with Foozaro during my time as editor of Daily Word Magazine. He had written several fantastic, heartfelt articles over the years, so I knew Break Out of Your Box would continue that tradition.
When my copy arrived, I dedicated a block of time to read. Before I knew it, that time block had long come and gone and I had read through the entire book! I couldn't put it down! Granted, dinner was not on the table, chores remained incomplete, and the pets were frustrated that they weren't fed. But my soul was satisfied because of Foozaro's positive living insights using his own real-world experiences. The artwork is amazing and sets the tone for each chapter. The subtitle, Be Your Heroic Self, is a fantastic reminder that we each have before us all that we need to create an inspired life. With Foozaro's guidance, readers will get there! Now that I have finished the book, I am taking a chapter a week to reflect on the message and to journal (or "joy"nal as Foozaro says) about how it applies in my own life. I highly recommend this book!"

The new book by Darrell Fusaro encourages readers
to trust their gut, act on intuition, and step out boldly.
"The stories are inspiring, constructive, and humorous. Fusaro has a positive, down-to-earth, and fun-loving style; he's like a cross between Dave Barry or David Sedaris and Emmet Fox or Eric Butterworth. If you like spirituality but don't like hearing it from blowhards, gurus, or academics, you'll enjoy this. The drawings are great, too, if you like the old-school Sunday comics style of Charles Schulz and Bill Watterson. Recommended." –Amazon, Customer Reviews
Even if you just bought it for the chapter titles and Darrell Fusaro's illustrations alone, you'd be getting more than your money's worth for this book. Darrell Fusaro's old-school charm and no-nonsense approach to spirituality will keep you laughing and inspired. His wit and wisdom is packed into easy-to-digest, bite-sized stories of how he transforms chaos into tranquility and succeeds by doing the opposite of everyone else.
"Rarely does a book inspire me like "What if Godzilla Just Wanted a Hug?" has done. Your book invites people to look seriously but lightheartedly at their usual responses to life situations. You offer simple, practical alternative responses that really CAN turn any negative experiences into positive, life-affirming ones. I've recommend this book to my congregation and have used some of your stories as great examples during my Sunday talks." –Rev. Tom Thorpe, Unity of Independence, Independence, MO.

PRAISE FOR WHAT IF GODZILLA JUST WANTED A HUG?
“Darrell Fusaro shares his life lessons with inspiring creativity. This book is encouraging, funny, and heart-warming —a combination I highly recommend!”
-- Laura Harvey, editor of Daily Word
"The words and illustrations of Darrell Fusaro's Hollywood self-help good-advice memoir play their way across the pages of his new book, the vignettes inspiring courage and laughter and even a tear or two. Spending some time with Fusaro's stories will leave with you no choice but to smile and carry on. He forgot to mention that he hangs out with a group of nuns, but then if he had, it would have necessitated a change to some of his more colorful adjectives." -- Sister Rose Pacatte, FSP, Author and Film Critic, Sister Rose Goes To The Movies
"I love this inspirational little book. It was very, very entertaining and had a wonderful message about finding something good in every bad situation. The cartoons with the stories were wonderful. Yes I would recommend this book to everyone who needs a better outlook on life." -- Amazon Verified Purchaser, Customer Reviews
