Mach adds a touch of humor,such as being outraged by the doctor slapping his butt when he was born, or when he was told he'd never be a published writer by a person who never had anything published! Mach uses a conversational tone as he relates the peaks and valleys of his life and shares with the reader ten valuable insights he learned, both as a writer and as a human being.
Persistence, Then Peace is the most entertaining, honest, provocative, and thoughtful memoir you will ever read.
