This book didn't win a Pulitizer Prize for nothin! It is skillfully written and a brilliantly told story. A must read if you are into early american history. It tells the story of Adams's life with all of the myth of a founding father stripped away.

Helpful Score: 2

Once started, this is difficult book to put down. At certain points I found myself pausing to look into the distance to ponder the incredible struggle for survival that these people went through. I can't help but wonder what I would have done in these life trying circumstances. Nando Parrado tells his story with clarity and full honesty about himself those who suffered with him. The story conveys the importance of nevering giving up, even in the face of overwhelming adversity.

The positive message of the book is uplifting, though what it describes is no secret at all. It is a well known psychological fact established in the twentieth century about positive thinking. The script follows very closely that of the movie by the same name. It is well worth the read.
