Digger Cartwright: The inspiration for “Conversations on the Bench” came from two friends, Sebastian and Robbie. Sebastian was a mentor to Robbie, sort of like Yoda to Luke Skywalker.

They shared a lot of common interests—politics, economics, wine, good conversations and debate, beautiful and intelligent women. But this book is really about Sebastian and the wisdom he had and shared not just with Robbie but with others. This is a tribute to the impact that Sebastian had upon many people in life.

He was a larger-than-life figure—one that would stand out in a crowd for his size and equally large personality. He was the type of guy you could turn to for good, solid, nonjudgmental advice. “Conversations on the Bench” was a project that I undertook at the behest of Robbie who wanted to share with others the lessons that Sebastian had share with him.

None of these lessons are any earth shattering revelations. They’re all things that you pick up in life along the way, but they’re shared from Sebastian’s perspective based on his own experiences.
