More About the Author

I always knew that I would write, I just had no idea how personal my first book, "6 Minutes Wrestling with Life", would be to me.

I love to inspire, motivate and show a different approach to dealing with or solving life's problems through my writing.

As a former athlete and current coach, I believe that in sports there are valuable life lessons that can have a tremendous impact on a young athletes life.

I pull these life lessons out from my own experiences in sport.

Hopefully I have touched you through my writing and have stirred your emotions enough to live life more fully.

You will not put this book down...ever! Pure Inspiration.

You do not have to be a wrestling fan to enjoy this book.
You will laugh, you will cry, but most of all you will be inspired by the lengths this family went through in order to keep normalcy in their lives when faced with a life altering event.

A breath-taking story. You will not be able to put it down. You will feel every second of pain and triumph, saddness and hope. The true and unconditional belief in FAMILY will rule over every obstacle. Truly AMAZING.

Once I started this book I couldn't put it down. I've never read such an inspirational book in my life. The passion and single-mindedness of the author shines through, and when someone is that passionate about something, you can't help but pay attention.

If a life could be read backwards, we would all see why we have gone through some of things we have, gaining skills that will be needed later, and John Passaro gives us a perfect example of this. His drive, ambition and unwillingness to give up showed up early in his life, and John used that drive to wrestle. While his hard work and dedication didn't morph into a stellar wrestling career, the skills he learned pursuing his dream did lead him to something he cherished more, saving his daughter.

I'm not giving anything away to say that John's teenage daughter slipped into a coma, this happens in the first chapter of his story. What gets John through the toughest time of his life, is the skills he'd learned through a sport he didn't excel at. Instead of lapsing into bitterness over what he perceived as a lot of wasted effort, John got on with his life and coached his two sons in wrestling, both of whom did excel.

Sure bad things happen to people, but it's what they do about misfortune that intrigues us. What happened to John is the worst thing imaginable, and had he not been the kind of person who had the grit to continue on, not only his life would have fallen apart, but the lives of his family and others close to him.

This is the kind of book you want to give to others who've, as John puts it, joined the 'club'. Anyone who's in the club knows exactly what he's talking about.

Bravo, John, I could not put this book down! It is truly a treasure and more than worth the read. For those who are struggling with life's issues, whether big or small, this book will quickly bring those issues into perspective. I was inspired by the author's perseverance, love, passion, strength, hope and above all...FAITH!!! I do not believe there is one person who would not benefit from reading this book. Do yourself a favor, buy one for yourself and one for a friend...you won't regret it and your friend will love you for it!

What a honest and riveting read for any parents. The pain and challenges faced by the Passaros are palpable to every parent whose unconditional love and faith is put to the ultimate test. As parents of a wrestler, we were already familiar with the wrestling Passaros -now we feel we know the Passaros, the family. We couldn't put it down/ and encourage everyone to learn the lessons with them - on how to meet life's most gripping challenges- often first developed on the wrestling mat. I hope there's a follow-up. You needn't be a wrestling fan to appreciate and identify the love and strength two parents exhibit when put to the test. As a wrestling fan and parent , I couldn't put it down. Tonight, turn off the TV and read a real-life story.

I started reading this kindle version and Iwas almost late for work.Ilove my work and very rarely do I miss work...but today I didn't want to go just so I could finish this amazing book.It covers so many topics from our awful health care system,parenting without limits,wrestling and life's lessons.This family had every reason to give up but they let there love carry them through.A true inspiration for our children and ourselves.A must read now.
