I was hooked on this book so quickly. So many life lessons in here. Dr Doty is on another level. He endured so much as a child and as an adult. Some of it through no fault of his own. Other times it was completely self inflicted, but there is something incredible about a person that is able to take a step back and accept what has been, but choose to turn things around. And, Ruth. awwww she sounded incredible! We all need a person like Ruth in our lives. Id recommend this book to anyone!
