A collection of stories from a Master Teller who has worked with teens for almost two decades. These stories are told specifically for teenage boys, ages 13-19. The content is blunt, edgy, to-the-point and of interest to teens. There is no "candy coating" here on this CD. For example, Sean starts off the collection with his own story about a time when he could have "done better" but missed an opportunity as he tells "Drunk Mr. Daniels." The stories are presented in a style that leaves the listener to draw his own conclusions. The CD contains stories from life and legend.
From the Back Cover:
"Did you buy this CD or is someone telling you to listen? Doesn't really matter. You won't find all the answers to life in here and you won't find anyone telling you how to think. Just vanish into your headphones and listen for a while. You will find stories about guys who fail and get back up, about stuff that looks great at first but turns out bad, about anger and hope, about light and shadow. Sound like your life? Yeah, we know. Listen again to the stories you like, listen more to the ones you don't think you "get." Let 'em roll around in your head until they mean something to you. There's no rush, this isn't a test. You might even find out about yourself." Please note this contains mature (not explicit) content that is designed for boys aged 13-19.

From the Author and Teller:
"I've been telling stories for and with teens for over 18 years. These are some that I get asked to tell when I work with groups of guys. You're going to find true-life stuff in here- like 'Drunk Mr. Daniels' when I didn't do the right thing and 'Gray's Hat' when I did. I don't give morals on this CD- you can figure them out for yourself. If you want to know more about why I tell these stories- go online some time and check us out: www.callingoutarisingsun.com . I know you have lots of CD's you can listen to so thanks for choosing this one."
