Being of a different generation than the author, I was somewhat pensive as I began to read his life story. What could I possibly learn? I learned a lot! Mr. Amaru has had a fascinating life and has told his story well. He peeked by interest, held it, and left me wanting the next installment—right now! The thing that impressed me the most in his telling of his story is how it helped me identify long forgotten personal issues that I had to maneuver through during my youth. Because Mr. Amaru was able to captivate me, I recommend this book. It is a good read.
