Remember Who You Really Are by Tony Somers
Following the success of Tony Somers' first book, the very highly acclaimed "Fighter Rescuer Healer", the writer has now released a short book with a collection of about twenty blogs from the last few years.

There is also too much about his childhood, which isn't particularly interesting, and probably not enough about his rise to success, which is the most fascinating part of the book.

However, he is also very self-deprecating, particularly when talking about his oddball behaviour, his luck with girls and courting of his future wife Kitty. Also if anyone thinks… Read more
