Our customer reviews

reading this book you will feel for this guy , come to understand him in some way and for me want to be this guy (but with a little more caution). well researched and layed out neatly before you its a sad ending for a man who just wanted to "be " just for himself. had left this in my wish list for a while before buying , that was a mistake , i could not put it down until i had finished.show more
