I”m thrilled from this excellent review of “Above All Else” that just came in from Irene Conlan, editor of The Self Improvement Blog and host of The Self Improvement Radio Show.
“From the time I opened this book until I came to the end of the first part which tells Dan Brodsky-Chenfeld’s story I couldn’t put it down. I read it while I was cooking, while I was waiting for my son, when I should have been working – you know what I mean.
The book begins with his awakening from a prolonged coma after a plane crash – a plane crash many remember reading about in the newspaper and seeing on TV. Because it was an event I remembered it became personal for me.
It’s a compelling story with more action than a Baldacci novel. But it’s so much more than the story of a man in a near-fatal accident. It tells of the driving force of passion to do what you love and it demonstrates the power of the human spirit to overcome all obstacles to realize that dream. It is a story of triumph where, humanly speaking, there should have been none. It is a story about an athlete, a dreamer, a man driven by the desire to be a world champion. And it is a love story. All of that in an I-can’t-put-it-down book.
But there’s more to this book than Dan’s story…”
