Come On, America traces the incredible life of former United States Ambassador to Estonia, S. Davis (Dave) Phillips, who early in life faced challenges including a leg amputation, bullies, rheumatic fever, and being held back a year in school. Dave leads his life with hope and optimism through both his personal and business life, facing new challenges and grasping each opportunity with that unwavering view. This attitude led him to many places throughout the world and allowed him to meet national and international leaders. He is the recipient of many awards, but his most treasured is the Choate Seal, which was first given to John F. Kennedy.

The broad spectrum of Daves personal and business stories constantly entertains readers. Come On, America includes elements of historical relevance focusing on areas such as: the city of High Point, North Carolina; state politics as Secretary of Commerce under Governor Jim Hunt; United States ambassador involving world leaders; and a personal experience of the first international cyber-war including Estonia and Russia.

A major influence in the shaping of the International Furniture Market that brings 80,000 visitors to High Point twice a year, Daves business acumen resulted in three of his companies being sold to three different companies on the NYSE. Each new venture widened his scope of business and led him to make a beneficial difference in the city, state, national, and international sphere. He became an admired leader and successful businessman. Readers find his journey both inspirational and educational as they discover in Come On, America the qualities and traits needed to be an effective leader and a successful businessman.
