Finally got my book today after much anticipation and it did not disappoint! I read it today and gave it away today, for I feel Papa Spyk's voice should not be sequestered with the rest of my dusty books, that are piled on a shelf. As a cardiac nurse I have seen miraculous things but never have I seen life return to a man with with such injuries. Never....ever.... He certainly has not come through unscathed but the fact he is alive and functioning and walking is nothing short of a miracle. What is also amazing is that Papa owns it all. His successes and failures, he takes full responsibility for his life and existence. This book is brutally honest and shows us that God is very much alive and well in our everyday lives. I have said that Papa Spyk has been touched by the hands of God and therefore he is an extension of the Divine. Papa Spyk if fully self-actualized to this and dedicates himself to making this world a better place! Thank you Papa...we need more of you! So, when ever you... More > are feeling sorry for yourself, pick up the book, read it and then sit down, be still and count your blessings. Someone else always has it worse than you. So, run and buy this book......well worth the investment. You will be inspired, moved and motivated by true mortal hero, this ordinary man who was put in extraordinary circumstances, who came out on the other end even stronger than ever before! Bravo Papa!< Less
