Review by Syndicated Radio/TV/Film Critic Larry Ratliff

Once a week, almost every week, I drive from San Antonio to Dallas and back on business. Last week, I slid Sonny Melendrez’s amazing audio book “Living with Enthusiasm!” into the CD player just before I took the loop around Austin. I can only say that by the time I reconnected with I-35 north of Austin, I was inspired, entertained and full of positive thoughts like I haven’t been in years.

“Living with Enthusiasm!” goes way beyond what you would expect from a veteran radio personality and motivational speaker. Even if you know Sonny, and I have been privileged to for years, you will learn things about the master broadcaster that will make you think to yourself, “So that’s where Sonny’s undeniable inner sunshine came from?”

You’ll discover why Sonny grew up in a loving home with a 1/2 in the address, his unique way of proposing to his true love and how a chance encounter with a humble fast food restaurant drive-through-window cashier came close to matching Sonny’s unselfish, giving spirit.

This is a book that everyone needs to hear. Yes, hear, because nobody exudes the emotional effervescence of Sonny like Sonny himself. When the audio book ended, all too soon, I might add, I was tempted to make another loop around Austin just to hear it again!
