1. Did you know that Haley became one of the most sought-after speakers in
2. Did you know that Haley had to have bodyguards because he was so-well recognized

7. Did you know that Adam Henig is a local author?
Adam's book is very short. It's only 60 pages (with big print!). But he packs a lot of very interesting info into a small book. In fact, my 7 questions only scratch the surface of the factoids that Adam gives us. It's definitely worth reading. There's a lot more going on than just a very highly rated TV show and blockbuster book sales.
