5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking book!, 18 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of those wonderful books that is well written, a piece of history, and thought provoking. The horrors of the Warsaw ghetto are vividly portrayed, making one question human nature at its core. When the chips are down, man will do anything to survive. The picture painted of wealthy Jews versus poor Jews within the ghetto is both fascinating and sad. The treatment of Jews generally by the Nazis is horrifying, a repetition of other stories with the same bottom line :survival of the fittest in its broadest sense. Throw in the toss of a die with regards to random exterminations, and life becomes extremely fragile.
Through all this depravity, there is a shining beacon of light. Good versus evil, against all odds of success.
This book is truly compelling. I couldn't put it down. From the Kansas school children! to Irena herself, this book is not to be missed!

5.0 out of 5 stars For those of you who want to better understand the workings of the brain!, 4 April 2013

I decided to buy this book after seeing a mention of it in a w/e supplement . The author worked with some of the Olympic cyclists. If you are looking for an explanation of why certain thoughts pop into your mind under certain circumstances, then this is a must read. I found it absolutely fascinating and fairly explanatory. There is a fair amount of information to take on board, but it really does seem to make sense. It helps to explain why we react in a certain way, and therefore, why others do too. If you want to change how you react in a certain way, then help is at hand.
I shall be reading this book again! A hard copy might be the better option, as it is then easier to switch between pages. If a Kindle version is the only option, then go for it!
