Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Dog Called Dez. The True Story of How One Amazing Dog Changed His Owner's Life (Hardcover)
This is a book of 2 parts. The first is the distressing history of John's childhood, neglect at home, the abuse in 'special schools', his passion for the band Madness and his dramatic loss of vision overnight. The second part follows his adjustment to disability and his ultimate transformation due to the bond he makes with his Guide Dog Dez. John turns his life around despite the odds, and becomes a fund raiser for the charity - Guide Dogs for the Blind. This book is cleverly written, reflecting John's personality, his struggles and sense of humour. It is an inspirational 'Must Read' for anyone who thinks that a person cannot change their ways.
