Product description

Review

"A gift to us all . . . Every page exudes courage, honesty, and an indomitable spirit. Mark Weber's story has touched me in such a profound way."--Mitch Albom, author of "Tuesdays with Morrie"
""Tell My Sons" is a deeply moving, personal account of a soldier's journey into an ultimate frontier. As I read Mark Weber's book, I was astonished by its honesty, courage, and discipline. This book offers one of the most profound and detailed descriptions of the strange world of cancer and should be essential reading for all of us who seek to understand that topsy-turvy terrain."--Siddhartha Mukherjee, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "The Emperor of All Maladies"
""Tell My Sons" is one of the most profound and inspirational stories I have ever read. It may have been written for Mark's children, but it may as well be a treatise for all of us about honest parenting and leadership with character in love, family, faith, and politics. For a man who is facing profound health issues, Mark is doing a remarkable job showing us all how to live with courage and integrity."--Walter F. Mondale, former vice president of the United States
"This book is why I have always been proud to call Mark Weber my son. His ability to reach across complex boundaries and write and speak with such depth and beauty makes him a modern day Lawrence of Arabia. Mark's passion, attitude, and thoughts about life are what is best about America."--General Babakir S. Zibari, chief of defense, Republic of Iraq
"A poignant illustration of what being a hero is all about . . . Heroes exemplify invincible courage, character, and perseverance in times of insurmountable odds. Mark embodies these attributes. "Tell My Sons" will empower the reader with profound lessons of living life with hope and determination."--John Elway, Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback
