“None of us is where we are today because we got here on our own. We have all had those around us help sometimes in unexpected, small but significant ways, while others may have had a larger imprint. Those who read [this] book will be more grateful for those who have positively shaped them in the past and be more purposeful in how they make a positive difference in the lives of those around them. God knows, the world needs more of that. This book is a must-read for all of us.”
