There must be a lot among the almost 90 thousand who have read this book and the following books too. I think it is amazing that a child, that was so abused, could grow up to a great personality who is helping young people including teenagers to get a balanced life. What are your thoughts about this book and the child who has a great deal to teach to grown ups too??

Reading this book was one of the hardest things I have endured for a long while, but once I started it I could not put it down. I applaud him for sacrificing so much to write these books. Having to relive the nightmare through the writing process must have been horrible for him. This man is a great man for sharing his story and putting himself out there to show other abused kids that they can step out and get the help that they need.

You are absolutely right, that is the triumph of a human being who did not give up and turned the bad experiences he had to something good for others.
