A Compelling & Visionary Approach to Finding Motivation & Inspiration September 7, 2014 By Cindy Bauer "Author & Editor" (Missouri) “A very compelling book; a must read for everyone...young, old, men, women, youths. The author’s extensive research and study took over three years. This included personal one-on-one live interviews, live small group discussions with people of diverse backgrounds, books, journal articles, internet articles and posts, and email correspondence. Dr. Toftoy took a risk by changing genres from mystery/thriller to self-help/motivational. He tackles many important life issues...all in one book. Using the same four characters of his Alpha Team from his previous two novels, it is written as though you are present at their weekly Alpha Team fireside talks—as if you are a part of the discussion. The thoughts provided are helpful and key in dealing with personal difficulties. Selected quotes, sayings and poems blend in wisdom and add depth to the particular topic under discussion. His strategy in writing this book is very clever and unique. To my knowledge, there has never been such a book written covering all of the topics this one does, nor using characters from the author’s other books. As Dr. Toftoy’s primary editor, I didn’t meddle too much as far as topic content; however, we did work closely together to insure the outcome would be a top quality book. It will be a useful tool in understanding and prevention of the topic matters for anyone, as we are all subject to the possibilities of them occurring to us or a loved one, no matter our backgrounds. Highly recommended reading.” Cindy Bauer Primary Editor
