This book is very inspiring and extremely well written. It provides a good account of the difficulties, hardships and adverse circumstances that many people live with. It furthermore gives great hope to the reader about the strengths and resilience of the human spirit. The ability that humans have not only to bounce back from the worst of experiences, but to even advance further and use their experience in a positive manner, inspiring thousands, is just tremendous. This book is easy to read and very interesting for anyone I believe. It is not amazing literature (but much better written than many other books that are "best-sellers" out there) and it does come from a very personal perspective, but that is what makes it so attractive and heart warming. If you want to read a biography that will touch you and educate you about matters that as people in the Western World we are unaware of, then this is the book for you.
