Like many other reviewers, I started this book not really knowing what it was about. The kindle synopsis only indicated that david had a story to tell, his story. Once I started it I could not put it down, I had no idea where his journey was going, or where it would end up, but, boy was desperate to find out. To say that it was a rapid page turning read is an understatement. I got through the book in about 4 hours, only stopping to take a call. I found david to be a fantastic writer, with incidents documented in their unblemished glory. He is honest, humble, and talented. I truly hope that his life has gone on to become happy, and that the past stays firmly there where it belongs. I see another book written by him in the kindle store, and I am hoping that the next 20 years are contained in it, I am about to find out. Well done david, and good luck.
