About Robb Gaffney:
Robb Gaffney M.D. began studying the slopes of Squaw Valley when he was in college. He has skied Squaw for more than 25 years and is the author of Squallywood – A Guide to Squaw Valley’s Most Exposed Lines.
The 48-year-old was one of the early faces of Matchstick Productions (his brother Scott helped start the company) and has been a Squaw staple for decades, but now the local psychiatrist has put skiing and life on hold to battle his latest medical hurdle, a rare form of blood cancer. He attended medical school at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and went on to serve as Chief Resident at the University of California, Davis.
Why Robb Chose This Book:
Evolution has designed our minds to charge ahead and fill us with daily chatter. But that steals us from experiencing the value hiding inside our every moment. Michael Singer does an excellent job exploring the phenomenon in a relatable way and how we can work to gain some reprieve from this constant stream of thoughts. I struggled with his interpretation of "God", but the book resonated with me well. I hope that it does with you.
