Editorial Reviews

Review

"When I met Bryan Anderson, I knew I was meeting someone exceptional. He put me immediately at ease. Here he was, this triple amputee, with every reason to be pissed off at the world, meeting someone who never wore the uniform. He pulled himself up on the chair, smiled with that shit-eating grin of his, and told me his astounding story.
Bryan is among that rare breed of hero, that takes in all the worst the world can heap on you, and lets it make him stronger, and makes the rest of us want to be better....he will make you think, and he will make you laugh, and you will be better for having read [his book]."
(-James Gandolfini)

Wow! This book should be a must read for schools across the country. Riveting, I couldn't put it down. Bryan Anderson personifies what it is to be a true American. Honor, courage, love of country. His unwavering faith and optimism that helped him to overcome challenges that most of us can never fathom is truly an inspiration. I am humbled by his strength and his selfless integrity. Thank you for your service and thank you for reminding people what it is to be an American. Read this book now and buy copies to give everyone you know at Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Format: Hardcover
I met Bryan very briefly a few years ago at my daughter's wedding to one of Bryan's close friends. I didn't get an opportunity to meet with him but I had heard the story behind his injuries and determined recovery. Watching him dance, smile, laugh and enjoy himself all through the night was enormously heartwarming. Too many people allow life's little bumps to ruin their day, month, year, life; but here was Bryan exhuberantly lifting everybody's spirits in the reception hall. Last night when I found out that he wrote this book I immediately ordered a preview Kindle edition. I poured through the pages and now ordered a hard copy. God bless you Bryan. You are an inspiration. Lester A.

Excellent story about how one man overcame a serious obstacle in his life: a triple amputation from an IED in Iraq.

I'd recommend this book especially for anyone who has had life deal them bad circumstances or challenges. The author has an incredible attitude about life, overcoming problems and driving forward. He is an amazing man.

There is some coarse language - after all, he was a soldier.

Format: Hardcover
One of the most compelling reads ever! What happened to Bryan Anderson, in Iraq, would have put most men down for the count; but he not only rises above his own limitations, he gives the world a step-by-step instruction manual on how each of us can rise above our own.

Turning his life-changing and catastrophic event into a positive outcome - one that not only benefits him, but all those around him at any given moment in time - makes him one of those truly selfless people that we should all try to emulate.

From this one traumatic and life-changing moment, he has gained insight into how we each can benefit from his new-found knowledge and understanding; what it means to not only survive, but to survive well.

His book is not only a 'must' read; but should be brought to the attention of every trauma survivor - so that we each can try to find the truest path to healing.

As a trauma survivor myself, I recognize all those insights (hidden within the pages of Bryan's book) that have taken me decades to find, or reach, within myself. I am proud to say that I am "on the same page" as Bryan Anderson.

I heard Bryan's interview about his life and book on 92.5 FM, WBEE Rochester NY country radio station. I could so relate to him on the interview as I am a legally Blind woman entrepreneur facing and overcoming life's challenges is a part of my life as well, so I was excited to get it and read more about Bryan's life journey. I was so excited about his book after his interview that I went and bought his book not for just me to read but for 2 other people in my life. This book should be a part of high school reading materials. Real life lessons and facing situations with courage and determination. Place this book in your hands and enjoy it, learn from it and when someone you know needs to pick their head up and look LIFE in the eyes. Purchase this book for them and give it to them as a gift. This is not just a gift they will use once but a gift of lifetime hope,strength and encouragement no MATTER what is thrown their way in LIFE! I personally look at LIFE and say "BRING IT ON!" I can ALWAYS find a POSITIVE in EVERY situation. Give it a try today!
