    Ann Haynes Truly an inspirational book and once you start to read it you don't want to put it down. Heartbreaking to read for those of us who have happy childhood memories. Its hard to imagine what Billy and his siblings went through, and Billy's mum. Billy's written it in his own words, just what life was like for them and how when he was older he found his escape in drink and drugs to blot out the painful memories. ... but then he found great enjoyment in running and went on to complete the harrowing Atacama desert run. Proof that anyone... no matter what has gone on in their life..... can achieve anything he wants to. Look forward to Billy's next book. Certainly a must read !!! by Ann Haynes

    Fabulous Read5

    Gail Duthie I think this is a wonderful book on Billy's life and gives others the feeling of how it is to be in someone elses shoes. A great book to make one think and appreciate his sense of humor is brilliant in describing things most of us can only imagine. Good luck on future endevours Billy I would give this book a Must read.

    Cheers Gail by Gail Duthie
