Thanks for reading and reacting, jeminah28! If you do read it, I hope you can tell me how you find it. It's not a book of oohs and ahhs but one with a message. It's not even a new message. But coming from someone who has experienced both the lowest depths and the highest crests makes the message stronger.

At first, I was leaning towards 3 stars because of the detailed accounts. I thought there were too many details especially for those deals that didn't pan out. But I realized that the details are actually what the readers would most benefit from. True life is full of the nitty-gritty. Those details, they're real. We have to deal with them, like it or not.

Thanks, Kandscreely! I always value your comments.

Hi, GingerboOks! Thanks for your thoughts. I do understand if you can't relate to this book, especially if you're not an entrepreneur.

BTW, I like your screen name, especially that capital O. It's like you're winking. 😉

Hi, KlareAllison! Thanks for the compliment. I do spend hours writing my reviews. I believe I owe the authors my best effort. Anything I write will be there forever, too. It's a chance to be a little author myself.

I have read many books that are similar to this, always looking for the thing that I am missing in my life to make it a success. This one sounds most intriguing, and from all that the author accomplished, I'd love to find out if this one has the missing piece for me. Thanks for the great review.

Hello, ReadingRebecca! Glad to see you here. This is my tenth review but only the second 4-starrer. This is the author's third book of memoirs. At 81, he is indefatigable.

Have you seen Ghost yet? Maybe not coz you're still talking to me haha.

Please tell me how it goes if you do read this, Emie Cuevas! Success is relative, they say. If you are successful, you have many relatives.

Thanks for visiting! Am I right to assume we are both Pinay?

The review certainly hit the bull's eye as well! I appreciate the enthusiasm. While I'm not a committed non fiction reader (often start then abandon ship halfway🙈) I can see this book has valuable nuggets up for grabs. It's also great to infuse a bit of humour to diffuse tense situations and to step out of the ordinary by adding a little dialogue in the autobiography. Thanks for the detailed review.

The book's review is so amazing. Just makes one know God's word is the final one, regardless of what someone may or may not have done. Power of positive thinking at its best! Thanks for your wonderful review.
