“As I get older and realize there are too many books that I have to read before my time is up. Having said that, I was ready to ditch this book half way through. I am glad I didn't, this book will kick you right in the balls. Kudos to the author and highly recommended.”
""I want you to know I was very impressed with your book ""Back from 44."" The fiction part of your book was far less fiction than you might think. The ""conversations"" between individuals in the book may have a figment of your imagination, but those conversations might have very well been discussed at the time. What was discussed was exactly the sort of things we did actually discuss.""
