Double Lives Snares Two Awards
Double Lives, by Honolulu author and businessman David Heenan, won two awards at the Book Expo America (BEA) event in Los Angeles June 1, 2003. BEA is the largest publishing industry event of the year.

Double Lives was awarded the Book of the Year Silver Award from ForeWord Magazine in the career category. ForeWord is a trade journal covering the independent publishing industry. The book was also a Finalist in the career category in the prestigious Ben Franklin Awards conducted by the Publishers Marketing Association, a trade association of independent publishers. There were more than 1,500 entries in each competition. The awards were made to the best books in several categories.


"Striking the right balance in life is increasingly important. Double Lives helps show you the way."

    Steve Case,
    Chairman, AOL Time Warner

"Heenan's analysis of those who have achieved great things reminds us of the importance of achieving balance. Perhaps it is not the celebrated passions that make Heenan's subjects so successful, but the richness of private obsessions that inform and fuel these passions."

    Tara VanDerveer,
    Stanford Women's Basketball Coach
    and 1996 Olympic Coach

"An enlightening, engaging, and provocative look at how to blend careers and personal pursuits for a truly fulfilling life. Must reading."

    U. S. Senator Daniel K. Inouye

"Business executive/writer David Heenan is living proof that balancing vocation and avocation can be a joyful experience."

    Spencer Johnson, M.D.,
    author, Who Moved My Cheese?
    and co-author, The One Minute Manager

"Rarely does one book inspire and instruct as well as Double Lives. Through numerous rich examples this book brilliantly provides both the 'juice' and the path to help us live our passions while living our life."

    Jerry I. Porras, Professor Emeritus,
    Stanford Business School and
    co-author, Built to Last

"Heenan's persuasive argument for nurturing serious interests beyond the world of work makes Double Lives both timely and a superlative read."

    Brent Scowcroft,
    former National Security Advisor, and co-author,
    A World Transformed
