Fantastic read

Lots of truths and eye openers...

Tell it how it is

What a fantastic book. I am so impressed with the honesty and the humbleness of the entire story of the life of a great man. Enormous respect from someone who can relate in many ways, honour and respect his feelings, but possibly never really comprehend all the extremes. This is something everyone should read to better understand themselves and make them realise that a positive outlook on life is the key to happiness and success. Thank you for sharing such a motivational concept on life. God bless you Barry Stranack.

Superbly written book.

This is a superbly written book that everyone should read. It's natural and honest style draws the reader into, not only a fascinating and inspiring life story, but also through often untold experiences in the Congo War. The book's structure makes for accessible and interesting reading and leaves the reader believing that choice, direction and care can overcome all circumstances.
