PRAISE FOR THE BOOK
"THROUGH IT ALL, THE AUTHOR LEARNED that he and his new wife could endure it all. "Looks Easy Enough" is a fun read that shouldn't be overlooked, with much inspiration."
-----James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief
Midwest Book Review
"WHEN I READ A GOOD BOOK and good writing it makes me want to write - reading your book made me want to write! I felt as it I was sitting down and catching up with an old friend over a cup of coffee. It's really a love story between you and Susan, also between you and your characters and with life - what you call the Magic. "
Contributing Editor, San Diego Parent Magazine
"A FASCINATING TALE and a superb read. I was really caught up in the story. LOOKS EASY ENOUGH gave me an intimate view into the struggles of a patient trying to come to terms with a diagnosis of cancer and how best to treat it. LOOKS EASY ENOUGH reminds me of Suzanne Somer's book, KNOCKOUT, which takes a critical look at how cancer is treated and some of the alternative methods available." -----Dr. Michael Schachter The Schachter Center for Complementary Medicine
"I DEVOURED YOUR BOOK in two sittings! I thought the sections detailing your ups and downs in the stock market were excellent - so honest and open when it came to taking a good hard look at yourself. I can't wait to read the sequel . . . you are writing a sequel?"
-----John Maizer Attorney-At-Law, New York, NY
"I LIKED LOOKS EASY ENOUGH a lot. You certainly followed through on your subtitle, A Joyful Memoir of Overcoming Disease, Divorce and Disaster. My favorite part was the construction chapters. It's amazing to think that you and a crew of five females (from grade schoolers to a senior citizen) did all that work yourselves."
Deputy Director, San Dieguito River Park
"AN ABSOLUTE EXCELLENT, excellent piece of work! I feel as if I've been visiting with a very close friend for the past few days while reading your book. Your writing style is so easy and fun to read. I admire your boldness to share life in such vivid detail (good/bad/ups/downs). As I read - especially the fire chapters - I couldn't wait to find out what happened next."
Julian Pie Company
"WHAT A GREAT BOOK! I thoroughly enjoyed it . . . so many laughs. I definitely want to play myself in the
movie!" -----Dr. Paul Chasen M.D., F.A.C.S.

"ASIDE FROM LOVING YOUR WRITING, your book had a major impact on me. The divorce story is my life. At times I had to put the book down to digest everything I was reading. I, too, am going through a painful divorce and have played the victim role throughout. Now I see another way. Thank you so much for giving me a new outlook. The light at the end of my tunnel now seems to glow brighter."

"SCOTT, IF MY MEMORY serves me right, wasn't English your worst subject in school? Didn't your report cards come home with mostly C's & D's? I can't believe you actually wrote a book . . . especially one this good. I loved it!"
Mother of the Author
"SCOTT STEVENSON IS GIFTED with the ability to observe and document in meticulous detail, and his natural curiosity makes this memoir a fascinating read. The story of the fire is gripping throughout, but the part that really got to me is the love story between a man and his wife. It is so unusual to look at marriage from the man's point of view. This is a grown up love story that proves there are second chances in the world of love. Drawing from their profound friendship, this couple rises to meet the challenges that life keeps sending and I, the reader, am left with a smile in my heart."
LCSW, Encinitas, CA
"SCOTT, I JUST DECIDED TO OPEN your book and see what it was like. HA! Just a glance at it! HA! I am loving it. I enjoy your style of writing very much and the book is very easy and enjoyable to read. I am trying not to go through too quickly and savor it instead. The stories, as you tell them, are very captivating. One of my favorite things is the asides you have in italics - delicious!"
