Liberation: One Writer¿s Adventures and MisAdventures on The Digital Playground
As Sarah states in her introduction, this book is not a how-to book. This book is not a lot of things. One thing that it is. It is a life. Sarah also says it¿s not an autobiography. And it¿s not. It¿s a story. It¿s a story of a life. Sarah Mankowski¿s life and how she has developed various aspects of her life to have what she now has. What does she now have? A marriage, a son, a writing livelihood and a genuine interest and commentary on things she observes as she lives her life. And something that they all have in common, is that she loves them all. She loves it all. This is a story about a woman who beat the odds. So what? There are many stories about people who beat the odds. This is more than an inspirational story. It contains depth and conviction of one person who is making a difference in many lives. But she chose to make a difference in her own life first. Sarah¿s writing style in this particular book is conversational, at least that¿s how I felt as I was reading it. I felt like we were having a conversation, and she was answering questions before I could ask them. In other words, she did very well at leading me down the garden path of her story. I wanted to read more each day just to find out what Sarah was up to and how she did what she did. And then what would I do? I¿d tell others about Sarah and her life, and what she had done and continues to do. I will miss reading about Sarah each day. I felt like she was here with me for awhile, but now she¿s gone. I¿ll miss her. If I were to be asked would I recommend this book, the answer is most certainly yes, and I already have, even before I finished it. It will help anyone along their way who may be at a crossroads. It will help those who have made it past the crossroads, and want to join Sarah and feel like you have a comrade in life who understands. You know the ones, the ones you don¿t have to explain anything to, because you know, that they know. Sarah knows. She is walking in your shoes as you read this story of her life. That¿s how good she is at this that she has done. Thank You, Sarah Mankowski! Susan JamesWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
