“I read this book in a single sitting. It is an inspirational, often poignant, occasionallybrutal, collection of essays about love, life, beauty, suffering,triumph, joy, pain and responsibility. I do not generally likecollections of essays as a format preferring a straight line narrative.Had I read only the synopsis of this work without the author’sadditional comments in requesting the review I would not have picked itup. Do not judge this book by its synopsis. Pick it up. Read it. Fivestars.”- Bob Cherny, The LL Book Reviews
