Its rare to come across a book that is exceedingly well written, full of depth of heart and soul, and that is eminently practical as well in its application. The author brooks no quarter in this story, opening up as it were his life from childhood, foibles and failures all, and the amazing transformation of his story from one troubled rebellious youth destitute as it were and incapable of receiving love to someone who not only has filled his life with love but who also lives the American dream in terms of expansive business success. The key was his experience of being loved by his late wife Margot who battled cancer for 9 years before she passed away at still the very young age of 38. It is their incredible love story that transformed him and that has spurred him on to a new life of service to those most marginalized and in need. The author has included very practical guidelines and exercises so the reader can also go through a process of making their dreams come true. All in all this book is priceless if you think about what can be unlocked not just by the story, but also by the process that is revealed.

A great book about self-improvement, it changes my life in a better way. This book totally shifted my perception on self-respect. It's really more than what is taught as self-respect by many teachers and coaches. This is a life-changing book and I don't know how one can go wrong after reading this book. I highly recommend it to everyone out there. This is it!
