Rob has become a very funny corporate and motivational speaker.
A quick look at Minimize The Mountain...
What I Should Have Said...by Rob Snow
You know those moments where someone says something to you that is so inappropriate it left you speechless? You then did everything you could to restrain yourself, smile through your gritted teeth, and find the nearest exit. Once you got away, and had a moment to yourself, you probably thought of all the things you wish you would have said.
Well, that's pretty much the gist of this book as it relates to those of us involved with the special needs community. Rob lists the many comments heard over the years, and does not hold back on his often hilarious, often direct responses to what he wishes he would have said.
"As a seasoned motivational speaker for the past 44 years, I tend to be critical of other speakers, however, this morning I was overwhelmed by your exemplary performance! I have been on stage with some of the best speakers(Franklin Graham, Eddie Albert, Bishop Tutu, and Zig Ziglar), and you belong on that list of amazing speakers!! Your delivery is powerful, and the use of your son and photos adds to the overall message." Dr. Don Bartlette, Motivational Speaker, Author

He was that perfect combination of humor, candor, and sentiment that we needed.
