It’s a great night table book for early morning inspiration or a bit of encouragement after a long workday. I highly recommend it.
It’s important to make time to be inspired
Dr. Mickleson has brought together a great assortment of positive thoughts and quotes to help make life a little more bearable. Beautiful. Thank You!
An authentic and inspiring book. Personal and honest. I couldn’t put it down!
Dr. Mickleson has written an authentic, inspiring book — especially useful during difficult times such as these, but the book is more than that. It is quite timeless and of value in the days to come as well!
The author has compiled a vast assortment of information he terms “The Good News File”. And what good news it is, full of hope and optimism. But what also makes the book so compelling to me is that Dr. Mickleson is very candid about his own personal struggles. I appreciate that level of honesty and it makes the book’s content all the more compelling.
The book can be read by picking and choosing topics, or just opening it up and reading a few pages at a time. But I couldn’t put it down!
I give this book a high recommendation. There is something here for everyone, and everyone can use the hope that is in The Good News File!
Packed with timeless encouragement
The story behind the book drew me in. Over the course of 50 years, the author collected memories, thoughts, and quotes that encouraged him. He called them his Good News File because he would flip through these memories when he needed a lift.
In his retirement, Mickleson spent two years writing a book inspired by his own Good News File he hoped would bring encouragement to a world that desperately needs it. He was right. It’s a thoughtful, encouraging work that includes original thoughts from the author mixed with quotes and stories from others.
A great gift for someone in recovery or someone you want to encourage, just because.
Wow! If you are old enough to read, think, and comprehend, you should read and reference this book.
I would challenge almost anyone to buy this book, open to the Table of Contents, and pick out a chapter read. Fast or slow, average I.Q., or even a genius…. be inspired and learn!
If you know someone that needs a smile, a better way to think, or act, tell them about this book or better yet, send them a copy. This book has the potential to save lives, give hope, and maybe even a smile!
Great coffee table book to pick up in all seasons of life
A beautiful testament of observation, self awareness ,and truth about life. This book is filled with wisdom and has the power to provide new, refreshing perspectives to inspire and motivate.

This book definitely has had an impact on my life as an educator for 35 years and also for those people that I work with in recovery. I would highly recommend it to anyone that really wants to grow. Thank you for what you’ve given to me in the world.
