Just a wonderful wild ride! A look at life through the eyes of someone who REALLY paid attention while living his childhood, and continues to do so. I found myself smiling while reading, too laugh out loud funny! It’s all in the details! Priceless stuff. Author rocks! A must read…..

 I just finished The Road Gets Longer If I Stop and knew I had to take the time to recommend this book!With all that’s happening in the world today, This is exactly what everyone needs as a reminder that humor can be found in your everyday life.It doesn’t have to happen on a grand scale and usually doesn’t. Some of life’s funniest moments can happen in the doctor’s office or waiting in line at Starbucks!Rick Garvia has taken these moments that happen to all of us and brilliantly written what we are all thinking. Mixed in are reminiscent stories about family and growing up during a time less complicated. Told with a wonderful combination of levity and nostalgia that allows the reader a much needed respite from our chaotic lives.I am looking forward to seeing more from this author!

This was recommended to me by a reader of your blog. I never heard of you before, but she was raving. I read a few of your blog stories and was hooked.

My favorite story was the one about menopause because my wife is going through that but they are all really good.

My only complaint is that there isn’t a second book with more of these funny stories. I loved this and I think the other reviewer was right about David Sedaris but Rick is more relatable. GREAT BOOK!!!!!!

I love Rick’s blog and the way he writes and I was so excited to see a book. He’s very funny and kind of sweet too. I wish him a lot of success!!!

Great book! Easy, quick read – and hilarious. If you like Steve Barry and/or David Sedaris-type commentary, you’ll love this too.

This was very well written, which is hard to find in a humor book.I laughed my ass off.

What a find! This book is full of funny stories, and I find myself quoting some of the lines to my friends. They think I’m hysterical. I’ve told everyone I can about your book. You really deserve a huge audience. There are also some nice warm touches and that’s what separates you from a lot of humor writers. This is a funny book for thinking people, but it’s not snide or mean. I loved it.

Rick is a very talented writer with a wonderful sense of humor. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys humorous “slice of life” stories. The book is actually a collection of various columns, each about 2-4 pages. Very easy to read and really funny. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to his next.

I read your book (I’m a faithful follower of your blog) before I read the new David Sedaris book. I’ve a HUGE Sedaris fan, but after reading your book, I found myself comparing it to yours. Yours is better. You are both talented writers but your funny stuff is funnier and your stories are warmer. Cheryl

I was trying to pick a favorite story, but they really are all good. Fits me to a T is hysterical and the menopause story should be read by everyone going through this. I liked the nostalgic stories alot too.
