*** THIS BOOK HAS NOT BEEN WATERED DOWN TO APPEAL TO THE MASSES *** It does not use gimmicks or profanity to sound edgy or as a manipulative tactic to get your attention. It does not exist to tell you things that you want to hear. This book does not involve magic or encourage wishful thinking. And it wasn’t written for money or fame or to sell a million copies.

This book was written to make a positive difference in people’s lives. And like the lessons in this book, this book is the direct result of a journey along the path less traveled. This book isn’t trying to copy other books’ success by following in their footsteps or being just like them. And it is precisely because of all of these things that this book has the potential to help people in ways that other books have not.

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled Volume 1 represents nearly a decade of lessons that were all prompted by and learned from actual life experiences along the path less traveled.

There is no filler here. From page 1 to page 350, everything in this book was written & included with the potential value it may add to reader’s lives in mind.

This book is packed with pages of encouragement, food for thought, reminders, and strategies to help readers cope with and overcome life’s challenges.

Let me be frank…

If this book has as much of a positive impact on your life as I believe it has the potential to, it is my hope that you’ll find it to be of far more value than the cover price. That is one of my goals in writing this book.

I truly want this book to change your life for the better.

While I can’t claim this book will change your life for the better, I can promise you that if it doesn’t, it isn’t from a lack of effort in trying to write a book that will.

Each piece is written to be as potent as possible. Every sentence, paragraph, and lesson is as concise as I was able to make it given my understanding of the lesson being shared at the time and my current skill in writing it.

Also, this is not a book that you read once, get pumped up about its contents, and then forget about. Lessons Learned from the Path Less Traveled is a book designed to be dipped into repeatedly over time — years, even. And I hope that you will.


While this book is packed full of potentially life-changing lessons for men & women of all ages, it’s not for everyone. This book is for those who are willing to keep an open mind, as well as think critically, while they read. It’s for those who believe they can change, are willing to change, and can commit to keep trying to change no matter how difficult the path may appear.

Because this book is for those who recognize that anything worth having is worth working for. And it’s for those who understand that long-lasting change takes effort and action, not wishful thinking.

Ultimately, this book is for those who already know — or those who are willing to learn — that the only thing that truly stands between the person they are and the person they want to be is themselves.

If this sounds like you — or like someone you want to be — then this book will likely be well worth your time and investment.

Is there an E-BOOK coming?

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero DeanYes, I will release an e-book version in the first quarter of 2019. However, the print version of this book is the ideal version. And I’m not saying that because the print version costs more. In fact, authors make more money from a $9.99 e-book than they do from an $18.95 paperback. And, personally, I love e-books.

However, I put a great deal of effort into designing a book that was meant to be dipped into periodically, randomly flipped through, and then put somewhere handy to be revisited as desired. And while the content of the e-book will be nearly identical to the print version, the experience is nowhere near the same. (And I can tell you this with certainty because I already have a working version of my book on my phone and e-reader.)

Here’s what I can tell you:

The e-book will retail for $9.99 and it will be an Amazon exclusive (at least for 90 days). If you buy the print version, Amazon will discount the ebook to $2.99 for you.

In addition, I will also run an Amazon promotion and drop the e-book price to between $0 and .99 for 5 days (at some time yet-to-be-determined) in order to allow folks to get at an even greater discount. If you want to be notified of when this will be, sign up for my book updates list below.

While I’m happy if you buy my book in any format, just know that the e-book makes a much better companion to the print version than it does as a stand-alone book.

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled™
Book Onezero-dean-book-not-everyone-will-understand-your-journey

This book series is packed with encouragement, food for thought, and strategies to help readers cope with and overcome life’s challenges.

You don’t have to be an avid reader to get value from this series. The contents of this series are designed to be read in nearly any order from nearly any page. Each piece is not only written to stand alone — so you can pick and choose content based on what interests you — they are also presented in a way that allows them to build upon each other if you choose to read the books in chronological order.

And you don’t need to commit a ton of time to reading. Lessons take anywhere from 5 seconds to 5 minutes to read.

There’s also a personal element to the books that provide insight into the author’s journey and some of the experiences from which a number of the lessons in this book were born. As you get to know the author, you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be exposed to his imperfections, and you might just catch a glimpse of yourself along the way.

“The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see.” — Alexandra K. Trenfor

The lessons and information I share throughout my book(s) are intended to be universal.

It is my hope that at least some aspects of the lessons I share can be applied to anyone’s life regardless of who they are, where they are from, what political party they belong to, or what religion they follow.

Readers are openly encouraged (from the very beginning) to interpret the information in my books through their own lens and to consider the content accordingly.

Although I want to challenge readers at times (because if it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you) — it isn’t my intention at any time to force my views on anyone. I want rational, thinking beings reading my books.

Yes, just not initially.

I love all books — including ebooks. And especially love the portability of ebooks.

But when it comes to my books, I truly feel the best way to read my books is in their physical form.

My books are designed to be dipped into from any page  — and this simply isn’t easy to do with a digital version. They are also designed to revisited repeatedly and not simply as a file you read and quickly forget about.
