I really like the personal nature of the book. I think you can even go a bit further in owning the impressions in the book. You are very diligent in citing others on some ideas when I think you can reasonably take credit. The level of detail is impressive; the use of idioms and metaphors to reinforce a point is useful. I am so impressed and think that there are a lot of important messages for young people in this book.

I was impressed by the use of various great analogies — Moses, story of a farmer, catching butterflies, Christmas and rural chicken as presents, etc. I was humbled by the courage that you exhibited in sharing your mistakes. The book comes out as “honest”. I could connect to who you are as a person – your soul. Your experiences as outlined in the book touch on the very important aspect of limited career guidance for the youth. Many youth will connect to this. The multi-disciplinary skill sets that you have developed over time are what our youth should be aiming for.
