The Old Grey
By Michael A. D’Anton IV
About the Book
The Old Grey is about a man who never knew what he would do in his life, and instead of going
out into the world to discover his passion, he waited for the world to bring passion to him.
He wastes his life waiting for something great to happen instead of making greatness
happen. After years of this misery, he finds the light that guides him to a second chance of
living his life in a way where he could be truly happy with himself. Learn the crucial life
lesson that you can’t wait for life to go your way; you have to go out there and find
something you love and make life the way you want it to be.
