"Amazing book, just like the key players in it. I laughed a lot at the well placed irony, but I also cried a lot. Fantastic reading"
"While reading this book you will realise how insignificant and unimportant dreams and wishes we follow at times. Those who never had to go through anything similar will hopefully go home and hug their spouse and children, reconsidering their values."

But then aftetr finally reading it they changed their views completely. The book gave them strength and faith. And a completely new viewpoint on life."
