    About the Author

    Dirk Chase Eldredge is passionate about writing and the research that necessarily precedes it. The book features thirteen in-depth studies of medical situations that had life-changing affects on those involved; patients, their families, friends and caregivers.

    Eldredge combines writing and speaking with entrepreneurship. He is the author of three published books. Versatile, his over 50 years in business have included computer marketing, retail ownership, startup and sale of a successful wholesale travel business and a ten-year bank directorship.

    His two prior books concerned controversial public policy issues; one on the illicit drug problem, the other on immigration. Both were published by Bridge Works Publishing of New York. His book on drugs garnered praise from William F. Buckley, Jr., and Nobel Prize winning economist, the late Milton Friedman. Together, they received enthusiastic reviews by the Los Angeles Times, The Economist Magazine, The Denver Post, Kirkus Reviews and others. In addition to scores of speaking engagements to community organizations, Eldredge has appeared on The O'Reilly Factor and Court TV
