Selected Book Reviews “Connecting to others is a guide to find success in any avenue of life. Nice Bike: Making Meaningful Connections on the Road of Life is a guide to forming those little bonds that mean so much in the world of business. Through two little words used as an example, the simple phrase of ‘nice bike’ lets you know that you understand what’s important to them, are willing to talk further, and acknowledges them. Stating that connections are so simple yet so important, Nice Bike is a business and motivational guide with a clear goal that it does well.” [Reposted by reviewer with a 5-star rating on] “Every so often, we come across a book that echoes our NICE philosophy and touches our hearts.

What readers are saying about the Nice Bike Book

Keynote Speaker and Author Honors Veterans

A portion of the proceeds from this book are donated to support Veteran’s causes. Read more about how the Nice Bike book Honors Veterans.

“As you’ll read (or have already read) about in the book, the greatest connection I had with my father, Norbert Scharenbroich, was through his service to our country in WWII. Dad served in the Pacific on the USS Lexington in a TBF Avenger torpedo bomber. And as I grew up, we watched every war movie that ever came out. But for me, the ultimate “Nice Bike” story is based on an experience I had with my father at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C. Some of the income I earn from the sale of Nice Bike will be donated in my father’s memory to Veteran’s causes.”

What Readers are Saying about the Nice Bike Book

I just wanted to celebrate how great Nice Bike is!!!  Such engaging, relatable stories and Mark, your personality jumps off the page. You present the power of making meaningful connections seem so doable and worthwhile for anyone. I’m excited to see the book and your message reach the masses.”

Liv Lane (Minneapolis, MN, USA)

“I was fortunate enough to see Mark Scharenbroich live in 2006. I had heard several motivational speakers before then and several since, I have forgotten them all except for Mark. His message has stuck with me, and this book reinforces those themes I first heard in 2006. I have enjoyed sharing chapters from this book with my team at the office. They come in, asking ‘Is it Nice Bike time?’ and they have not been let down yet. The book contains messages that can enhance your personal and professional life, if you will let it. Nice Bike, Mr. Sharenbroich!”

T. Kreizer (Texas, USA – as posted on an product review)

“With less than 4 hrs sleep, I got on the plane headed to Minneapolis at 5:30 am. Waiting for the plane to taxi out I had a choice: in-flight magazine to put me to sleep or Mark’s book. Opened the book and gave the intro a shot. Didn’t put it down till I had read it cover to cover. GREAT BIKE! It’s a winner.”

—Ron Snuggs (Evans, GA, USA)

“Mark, heard you speak this year in Dallas and really enjoyed your talk. I downloaded your book and finished it on the plane en route to celebrate my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. I took that week and really connected with my parents differently than ever before. I found out things I never knew: such as where they met, where they went on their first date, and many stories of their first years together.  Your book inspired and made a difference to me. Sincerely, thank you. I enjoyed Nice Bike so much, I recently purchased 10 copies to give to friends and colleagues. Thanks again.”
