How to Make It Yours   

Humankind has spent centuries searching for ways to resolve its existential malaise and sense of futility. We have rushed to one organized corpus of thought after another—from philosophy to numerology to astrology and beyond—in our vain search to find joy. And yet, we continue to grasp for that “team feeling” about life; we continue to feel disenfranchised.

Until now.

When Dr. Alan Gibb passes a young boy on the street wearing a pair of Mets shorts, a Red Sox t-shirt, and a Yankees cap, the theory of human relationships called “Franchisement” is born. Franchisement: The Alan Gibb Story is the revolutionary story and guidebook to humankind’s most inclusive corpus of thought. It is your outlet to finally discovering the truths of one influential man’s race toward maximizing the possibility and profitability of human interconnection.

As Gibb likes to say, "If you listen to people, the world is divided between the Yankees and the Red Sox. Tell that to those with a crush on the Minnesota Twins." This satirical novel will have you laughing out loud, scratching your head, and as long as Gibb has something to say about it, buying the answer to your true identity.
