PRAISE for Beware the Purple People Eaters
–– A Personal Look at Leadership ––

“Anthony Paustian's latest book is an easy read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. BEWARE the PURPLE PEOPLE EATERS is full of good ideas which are presented in ways that make them very useful and easy to remember.”

––CAPTAIN ALAN BEAN, Apollo 12 Astronaut and the 4th man to walk on the Moon

“WOW! Anthony Paustian blends wisdom and words in a how-to book dedicated to shaping your life. The reading is easy and the message profound. Written by one of the most dynamic and diverse people I have ever met, BEWARE the PURPLE PEOPLE EATERS offers sound advice for building personal leadership skills all right here in black and white…and purple. This is a book I plan to give to many of my friends as a gift that will definitely keep on giving.”

––DR. DAVID GALLO, co-expedition leader to the RMS Titanic

“This is an awesome book! For all people in need of a ‘tune-up’––from professional athletes to business leaders to everyday doers––BEWARE the PURPLE PEOPLE EATERS provides the tools necessary to succeed.“

––MARK COLLINS, retired NFL cornerback and two-time
Super Bowl Champion with the New York Giants

“Thoroughly enjoyable and thought provoking, Dr. Anthony Paustian's ability to weave stories into key leadership themes is exceptional and makes BEWARE the PURPLE PEOPLE EATERS an easy-to-understand book with take-aways that can lead to real results. Creativity really does matter, and the more we can surround ourselves with positive, innovative people who are willing to take risks, the further we can go. Greatness is within our grasp, we just have to follow Tony's sensible guidelines to capture it.”

––KRISTIN RUNYAN, former Chief Product Officer, CDS-Global

“A must read! This is not a conventional book, but one that goes well beyond the boundaries of personal leadership. Rather than simply advising to ‘look outside the box,’ Dr. Anthony Paustian leverages a series of life lessons to captivate and challenge readers to find the innovation and creativity to change the box they are in, and in doing so, accomplish their mission. BEWARE the PURPLE PEOPLE EATERS is guaranteed to change the way you think!”


“A fantastic read. Dr. Anthony Paustian gives us the road map to personal responsibility and leadership as we define the dash between the years of our life!”

––BOBBY HANSEN, retired NBA guard with the World Champion Chicago Bulls

“Drawing on personal anecdotes and real-world examples, Beware the Purple People Eaters offers a metaphor for addressing that which stands in the way of achieving one's potential. Through practical advice gained through personal experience, Dr. Anthony Paustian leads readers through the challenges facing each of us and suggests hands-on approaches for making sensible changes that address our very outlook on life.”

––DR. JASON RHODES, NASA astrophysicist and cosmologist
