This is a very sad story but one worth taking note of. I had this book sitting around my house for years refusing to read it because I didn't want to be burdened with the details of another person's sad life. My own are bad enough. I finally read it and it broke my heart and made me pull my boys close to me and tell them both how much I love them each and every day. Every child deserves love and affection from someone, especially their mother. I could just see his sad eyes right through the ink on these pages. This book doesn't keep you down too long though. It is a fast read and leaves you with a story of a man who lived through this nightmare to be a stronger human being with an amazing will to survive. He chose to use his past as a stepping stone to a higher plane. He's not an "it" but a real american "super hero".
