About the Book
You’re on the Crazy Train and I’m Driving is a story of author William Means’s life so far (age sixty-seven). Means had a very tough time early in his years growing up in a big family in Pittsburgh, PA. In those years he encountered some very trying times. As Means met his future wife things turned for the better. His friends tell him that his stories seem not believable but he can assure you they are real. Means came close to making some very bad decisions along the way and took some wrong turns, but with help from his wife, he stayed on track. Everyone that has listened to his stories has told him to write a book about them, so that’s what he did! Means easily could have ended up on the wrong side of the law but something told him to go with what his wife was telling him and it worked. His stories remind him of the TV show This Is Us but his stories probably are a little juicier. Means is a hard guy Yinzer from Pittsburgh that somehow ended up in Cincinnati with a great family. His readers will learn the true meaning of the phrase "Never Quit."
