The book by Ron is an intriguing book, a lively story it is. It's quite an inspiring story that focus on faith in God, hoping against hope. I would really like to know more about Patsy's story. A great review it is.

Wow! I almost have no words to describe the faith, hope, trust and belief this book portrays. Ron and Patsy's experience is really surreal and how they come out of it by putting their Trust in the Lord is really encouraging and giving religion an upper hand in problem solving. Your review is also explicable of everything that's happened in the story and anyone would want to download the book right away and read it.

I'm a little over 30% in reading this book and am enjoying an easy read. It has a lot of positive thoughts throughout and I like reading things that inspire me. I lost my husband to cancer about 10 years ago and a lot of the same struggles came up that were mentioned in this book. Thanks for this book and also the review.

Such level of love, loyalty, and commitment is very rare. I thank God too that Tripodo portrays God's love through loving his wife unconditionally.

One Man’s Perseverance When No One Else Believed is a beautifully written story of a husband’s constant love for his ill wife and God. The unconditional love between the three proved that with patience, understanding, and faith, anything is possible.

As an avid reader, I rate this book a 3 out of 4 stars due to redundancy throughout the book in relation to God’s miracles. I do understand this was necessary to provide a clear picture of Ron’s persistence at the hands of God. However, from the standpoint of Ron writing this book with severe ADHD, I rate it 4 out of 4 stars. Readers who suffer from similar diagnosis can use this as motivation towards their own life goals and relationships.

Ron Tripodo’s goal in his story was to create the “What If” question to those who may not be firm believers in God. I can honestly say he is successful at having the reader question their own faith or lack of it. In my adult years, I have not had the desire to read a non-fiction book that strongly held religious connotations, but this opened the gate for me to free my mind. I will no longer automatically pass a book up due to it coming from a religious standpoint.

Ron’s unwavering faith in God is uplifting and beautiful. He encourages the reader to carry his optimistic attitude through life and know that He always has a plan for you. Even in trying times, know there is an end to a beginning.

One Man’s Perseverance When No One Else Believed told the reader to never falter on what you know. As individuals, only we know what is best for ourselves and our beliefs. Each day, you can choose to let the world build your walls, or you can let it break down your walls and live free.

I love that your perspective on God and faith was shifted by this book. I also am learning to love unconditionally. Though the pain of losing what you value and often times being rejected, betrayed and heartbroken, still I find the strength to believe that God is working it all out for my good and for His glory.

I am sorry that Patsy suffered through such a terrible illness and was relieved to read that she overcame such a devastating condition. However, I did not enjoy Ron's telling of the experience. He tried to portray himself as some sort of hero simply because he prayed and believed he was spoken to by Jesus. To me, Ron was arrogant and self-absorbed. Why didn't he sell his company when he had the chance? He even said it was a great deal. That would have allowed him more time for Patsy. Instead, he kept working and asked a family friend to stay with his wife. That friend, Linda, was more inspirational and helpful to Patsy than her own husband! Also, he titled the book "When No One Else Believed" as if he was the only person praying for Patsy, when in fact thousands of people were praying for her!! And what was the point of telling the story of his lunch with a beautiful woman who seemed to be flirting with him??? Does Ron think he deserves some reward for staying faithful? I hope Patsy continues to improve and grow stronger. Ron on the other hand shouldn't write any more "inspirational" books. He made me more annoyed than inspired.

Thanks for the review. I have had this conviction since I was a kid that, the saints are the people who stand by others in time of tribulation. And sickness can really be such a tribulation.
