"Pure Romance is a story about the power of a dream and the will to break down the barriers standing in the way of that dream. Chris tells the inspirational story of how a business that started in a basement turned into a global phenomenon. But maybe more importantly, he clearly reveals that the same principles that were born in that basement, the bedrock of his company's success, still positively impact his company, employees, and customers today. Those principles can help anyone bring their dreams to life."
