Mike Branon was stuck on a cruise ship at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.   What came of that experience was Pickleball & the Art of Living:  The Power of Positive Dinking, a book which is a metaphor for life.  It combines humor, advice on how to live fully, and of course guidance on how to play Pickleball.
