    Enjoyable read!

    Read this book in one day. Really provided an interesting look into a family dynamic by a person who has obviously broken out of the family dysfuntion to live a full and happy life and realize his own potential. Gives us all hope!

    A great autobiography. I loved it.

    If you grew up in a large family or in a family that ran a business together, the author's exploration of his family relationships and his efforts to break free of the dysfunction will definitely strike a chord. The book is touching and insightful and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
