Christopher Brathwaite could well be the Caribbean's own Horatio Alger. His just published "There Are No Mistakes, Only Lessons" amply illustrates his success story. Subtitled "A Modern Caribbean Success Story," it is that, but much more. - -- By St. Thomas Source Magazine
I enjoyed the book thoroughly, it is moving and insightful. My friend Chris Brathwaite offers inspiration to all of us who have stumbled along our ways, not to focus on the mistakes but to learn from them, and to apply those lessons to our daily lives. Well done, Chris! - -- By Penny Feuerzeig "Executive Editor of the Virgin Islands Daily News"
From the Author
Christopher Brathwaite said the book was his attempt to convey life's lesson to his children and grandchildren, much the same way his parents fortified him and his other siblings. Brathwaite credits his family and Barbadian upbringing for instilling the confidence, work ethic and values that enabled him to succeed. Brathwaite admitted it might not be as easy today for someone to do what he did, but he remains convinced in the value of hard work, being ready for success and trusting yourself.
