Darrell Fusaro quit art school and joined the U.S. Coast Guard because his fear of looking bad in art classes was greater than risking his life in the Bering Sea. However, this bad decision did lead to greater things. In 1990 he became one of only a few Coastguardsmen to ever receive an Army Commendation Medal for meritorious service—just one example of Fusaro's many blunders that brought remarkable good fortune.
The book "What If Godzilla Just Wanted a Hug?" is a concise compilation of Fusaro's experiences that prove love, forgiveness, and faith make you magnetic to your heart's desire. What's unique about this book is simply just reading any one of the chapter titles triggers an optimistic perspective. Such as; "Anything worth doing is worth doing badly," and "It's not what you think of me that makes me upset, it's what I think you think of me that makes me upset."
Darrell Fusaro is frequently described as a renaissance man, albeit a wayward one.
