From Chicken Soup for the Soul of America

Who Is Matthew E. Adams?

Matthew E. Adams has extensive media and journalism experience and is an accomplished public speaker. He began his career working in radio while still in high school. After graduating from college he worked for ESPN in the production department where his assignments were SportsCenter, the NHL and the NFL. In addition to his media activities, he has spent the last twelve years as an executive in the golf and sporting goods industry. He also can be seen as a regular contributor on The Golf Channel.

Matthew has written numerous stories for the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series. Chicken Soup for the Soul of America is the first Chicken Soup book that he has coauthored. While researching for the book he toured Ground Zero and interviewed many people directly affected by the events of September 11, 2001. Matthew said the trip to the World Trade Center site, within weeks of the terrorist attacks, “Was an incredibly emotional experience. The scale of destruction and loss devastated me. Yet, at the same time, the people of New York were so strong and resolute. I found them to be inspiring. They are true heroes.”

Matthew found the experience of coauthoring a Chicken Soup for the Soul book to be very rewarding. “I am humbled by the dedication of all of the people who worked tirelessly to pull this book together. I am particularly thankful for the patience and support of my wife Donna and my family.”

Matthew Adams is available for professional speaking engagements and can be reached by e-mail at [email protected] or by mail at the Chicken Soup for the Soul offices.
