The Thing About Humans: They Need Each Other, and Here’s Why



 Len Kuntz never thought of himself as brave, and yet, his profound, candid glimpses into fragments of his life reveal a pattern of behavior that is nothing short of resilient, if not all-out courageous. His popular Ghost Parachute blog, “The Thing About (My) Drinking,” resonated so deeply with readers that he kept churning out true stories, resulting in This Is Me, Being Brave, his deep dive into a well of relatable, universal themes that aims to unite readers in the human experience.


“The topics were random, but each one was, in its own way, a subject that felt important, or so it did to me at least,” Kuntz reflects. “What I learned is that we are all way more alike than we are different.”


In This Is Me, Being Brave, Kuntz draws readers into stories exploring concepts such as:


– What it means to be fully present in the moment

– What it means to grieve

– What it means to confront your failings

– What it means to love like it’s the only love you’ll ever have


Kuntz addresses these issues and dozens more by laying bare his own ups and downs in hopes of weaving a safety net of moral support for readers that spans the spectrum of the human condition. Full of wisdom and humanity, deeply personal and universally relevant, Kuntz turns bravery on its very head and defies you not to be moved.
