I have this book but am not posting it because I don't want it to get away! :) Very good book - any member of this club ought to be able to appreciate the joy of the author who started school to learn to read at the age of 98.

I read this book about 5 years ago after hearing an interview with the subject. The book is delightful. It is simply written and celebrates George Dawson very modestly. he had so little but achieved a great sense of purpose and satisfaction throughout his life.
Very uplifting (now if I can only find my copy I could re-read the book!).

Reading about anyone's life would be amazing, but this man's attitude should make it required reading. it tells about one person's struggle, but also about life in general in those times. It also tells you the value one places on an education, which was not possible for him earlier. all heroes are not football players, they are everyday people who live their lives out as well as they can. A wonderful book, i enjoyed it immensely.

I came away from this book very much admiring George Dawson. His character, work ethic and attitude about life is inspirational. Full of some wonderful insights, this book and George Dawson left an imprint on me. Great true life read that I think many young people would benefit from reading, too.
