Along the way, he imparts his own brand of wisdom for example, you can't reason with animals or machines, and sometimes repeating the same action gets different results. He knows about humiliation, and he knows about success; he also knows that timing is everything! In Never Take Advice from an Unscarred Man, Kolb recalls his time as a small kid through the last half of the forties, his crazy teen years, his life in the navy, and beyond. The educational bruises and mistakes Kolb recounts have had far more influence on his happiness and success than any formal education could have.
