Dr Woh 5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Read May 29, 2019 I experienced every emotion while reading this book. Sympathy, empathy, surprise, disbelief, and support are a few of feelings while following this full-life coming of age saga. The fact that it is a true story answers some of my questions of why some people turn out like they are, but makes me appreciate the people who have overcome incredible obstacles in life to succeed, move on, and forgive. This book had me cringing at some of the experiences the author had, empathize with some of his feelings, rooting for him to win in the end, and celebrate with him at the finish line. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a serious book with a true story, told in a humorous and non-pity evoking way, with a very evident moral of the story. It also sheds quite a revealing light on some of the institutions that still exist in our country. I will read it again.
