Editorial Reviews

Review



"...a welcome and positive take on what lies within us once tragedy strikes. The Courage Companion is the perfect antidote to feeling lost in times of chaos and challenge."
––ForeWord magazine

"With this Portland rain we all hold on to the hope that the sun will soon appear to lift our spirits. Before that sun arrives there is a way to provide your spirit with the infusion it needs. Read the book The Courage Companion: How to Live Life with True Power. A handy, compact book whose size belies the big impact its many stories hold within. These true stories of ordinary people who have acted with extraordinary courage encourage you to act with the same kind of strength."
—Portland Book Review

The Courage Companion is a book I intend to keep by my bedside when I need to be reminded of all the people in the world who have exhibited extraordinary acts of bravery when faced with the every day trial of life. It's impossible to feel alone when you read this book-- you cannot help but be inspired.” — Lee Woodruff, author of Perfectly Imperfect: A Life in Progress, and life and family contributor for “Good Morning America” on ABC-TV

"The Courage Companion is a tool chest for the realization of our truest dreams. Lesowitz and Sammons show by inspiring examples and gritty wisdom that the runway to courage lies within us, in unsuspected places, then guides us into take-off and shows us how to soar."

—Alan Kaufman, author of Jew Boy

"At some point in our life, we all must summon up our courage in order to face our fears—whether those fears are from such things as having to give a speech, embarking on a new career, or facing a medical diagnosis. Yet no one tells us how to develop courage, until now and this wonderful book. In an easy-to-read format, it explains what courage is, how to get it, and provides inspiring stories from those who have it."

—Allen Klein, Author of The Courage to Laugh: Humor, Hope, and Healing in the Face of Death and Dying

"Courage is all about doing the right thing at the right time for the right reason no matter how difficult. The Courage Companion is replete with such stories of courage and I highly recommend it as an enjoyable and inspiring read."

–General William R. Looney, III, Retired USAF, author of Exceeding Expectations: Reflections on Leadership


“This book shows all of us that one individual can make a difference, changing the course of their own lives or the lives of others through a willingness to take a stand, overcome fear, go forward and never back down.”
—From the foreword by Larry Cox, veteran human rights advocate and executive director of Amnesty International USA.

Format: Paperback
Courage comes in many guises. The Courage Companion presents stories of fortitude, many of which are the quiet, unsung acts of courage that ordinary people find themselves called to in order to overcome extraordinary circumstances. In truth, courage is an inner strength that we each possess, the strength to take action, in spite of our fears.

When we find ourselves acting with courage, in spite of the situation, we are winners in life. Winning at life is the manifestation of the power that exists within all people: it is the manifestation of the human spirit. All people know this intuitively and this is the reason people admire and respect a winner. The stories in this book remind us of this inherent power that we all possess.

I keep this book on my nightstand and read a random chapter whenever I need a good dose of inspiration which is what each story in this book offers. I highly recommend this for anyone who finds themself in a challenging situation and needs a helpful frame of reference to put their own situation in its proper perspective.
