Reviews

“Hell yes! This is a terrific read, and iconic in its portrayal of one of the most turbulent times in American history (I know, I was there).”

“As I Canadian I think my view on this book may be different. I was in elementary school during the war in Viet Nam. I didn’t know much about the war. I found the book to be fascinating.”

“This book illustrated the consciousness-awakening of the turbulent peace demonstration days and the ripple effect we still see and can learn from today.”

“This is a captivating recount of a man redeeming his humanity and appreciating what really matters in life. It’s a dramatic and interesting story, with frequent touches of subtle humour, which highlights perennial themes such as power, hypocrisy and self-interest, responsibility, values and justice, dignity, courage and love.”
