I very seldom recommend books, as each book has a different message for each person. A book I may find uplifting, you may find boring.

However, Bouncing Back by Bill Bartmann is a must read book. It is an inspirational true story of a man and his family, rising from broke, to billionaire, just to lose it due to others greed for money and fame. They pick themselves up out of what would have broken most people, and start again.

What makes this story so gut-wrenching for me, is that I have been in some of the places he has. Losing years of saving due to others. Having debt collectors hound and threaten your family, because they can. It is also inspirational for different reasons, but for me, that he did not lose his dignity and humiliation when he was a billionaire. When one of his worker’s car broke down, and she walked 15 miles to work. He bought her a new car as appreciation for her dedication. The amazing part is, that he became rich by trying to help people. Instead of hounding people in debt for money, he helped them to get on their feet again and pay off their debt.

Bouncing Back by Bill Bartmann is a truly inspirational story, from working in a pig slaughterhouse, to billionaire, to broke and back up again.

Below is a letter i send to Bill.

Hi Bill

I just finished your book, Bouncing Back.
It was a gut-wrenching journey for me through the pages. Although I cannot imagine all you have been through, I can connect with parts of it.
Debt collectors are not just a problem in America. I am from South Africa and am currently in the Cayman Islands. I saved for years to make my dream come true of travelling the world. That dream got shattered by greedy people that lie for their own benefit.

An absolutely amazing book! This book grabbed hold of me from the beginning and never let go. I was blown away by Bartmann's life story - from his early struggles with poverty, dropping out of high school, working on a factory line slaughtering pigs - to the people in his life who recognized his potential and helped him to get his GED, and then get into college, and then law school - to his phenomenal success in business. The setbacks he encountered and his ability to prevail and to continually re-invent himself make for a mesmerizing tale that I won't soon forget. The book - which I read in one day because I couldn't stop - had me exclaiming out loud and putting the book down in disbelief multiple times as Bartmann recounts the roller coaster ride that's been his life. It's amazingly inspirational and a book I plan to immediately share with everyone I know. I'd give it 10 stars if I could. All I can say is BUY THIS BOOK!

A true story of perseverance. Life is full of disappointment and struggle, this guy definitely has had his share of both-he's a true Phoenix. Definite proof that our attitude plays a tremendous role in determining whether we rise from the ashes after we've been knocked down.

Even knowing what I know now, it is unfathomable what Bill Bartmann has endured, what our country did to him and how God works such incredible wonders. I would give any possession I own to meet him and have a chance to speak about what this book has done for me. Read this book...every word of it.

you lost credibility with me when you beat up your friend "by accident" because you thought it was someone else,..c'mon, mister. I guess you were right in thinking folks would believe that,..judging by all the 5 star reviews. I saw thru it in an instant,..by the way you weirdly pre-ambled the story with the "fact" that you were so focused on this bad guy that everything else around you went blank, or something fishy like that,...A huge piece of evidence that that story is suspect: the fact that your great friend ceased to be your friend after you "accidentally" sent him to the hospital by "accidentally" beating him up,..
