This is a timely and important new book that challenges everything we think we know about cultivating true belonging in our communities, organizations, and culture. No matter what your situation is today, this book will put you on the right path to better things. I’ve been around the block a few times myself and even I found this read to be very insightful and inspirational. In these pages, the author describes what it was like to be a migrant from Moldava, the mistakes he made, how he has coped and struggled to survive, and how he found the strength to pick himself back up afterward. With humor and candor, he tells readers what it took to get back on his feet—the rituals, relationships, and reading that got him through, and what the experience has taught him about life.
This book isn't just a biography; It's a life improvement book. It's a must read for anyone who needs a healthy dose of inspiration in their life. Simple, yet profound statements such as, 'Who we are is a product of our past circumstances, but our future is shaped by our choices.' ... 'There is no opportunity for change in a world in which you feel comfortable, so it takes a desire to get out of the comfort zone to bring about change and find new opportunities. You have to be willing to be uncomfortable if you want to change your life for the better— I sometimes call it being “eagerly uncomfortable”.'
I've no doubt you'll walk away a better person for having read this man's extraordinary story. It's given me a different perspective and understanding on the plight of migrants. In so much that, 'There’s something to be gained when we trade a longing for truth and authenticity for the hope that new modes of storytelling can be found and disseminated, stories that might make people whom we wouldn’t willingly invite into our living rooms seem familiar enough so that we might want to change our minds.'
This captivating and commendable work had me immersed from the beginning. The story flowed from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. There are plenty of attention-grabbing moments in this page turner that will take the reader on a truly inspirational journey! Both physical and emotional, against great adversity and against all odds, Author Vadim Turcanu should be praised for sharing his past with such courage and integrity. It's a compelling read that will keep the reader engaged.
It’s one of those books that come along once in awhile that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader. Moreover, I believe that this book will be indispensable as one of the primary sources for those wanting to better understand the migrant's story.
If this book is anything to go by, I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Vadim Turcanu in the future. I would definitely recommend this book. Five stars from me.
Through the book you realize the plight of the migrants and why they are forced to migrate for a better future. Story is not only written in an interesting manner but also it gives an inspiration to achieve something in life with determination, hard work and taking risks. In spite of getting stuck in criminal gangs for his survival, how the author comes out clean and settles for a successful life in UK, is a highly motivational story for the people who are young and want to do something in life. At the end of the book, the author has published an interview of a successful migrant, which I found very inspirational.
Dear author, to say the least, it is a wonderfully written story. Thank you for opening up your soul, a brave act...perhaps a necessity. I admire your courage and strenght!
I highly recommend this book to those interested in finding out more about Moldova's migration process back in the 2000s...unfortunately, this was the migrant profile of those times...
The author takes us on an intimate trip as he flees Moldova where he has known great hardship and struggles to get to a new home in London --hoping for a fresh start in life.
Written in a compelling style that kept this reader in the story and provided concrete examples of his experiments at not only trying to reinvent himself but develop empathy for the struggles of others. Along the way he also delves into his own insecurities and how he overcame them, offering insight and motivation for anyone who has ever wanted more out of life but was perhaps too timid to go for it.
