    " A library patron recommended this to me. I hope to see her again soon, so I can thank her. This is such an inspirational book, I've recommended it to several more people. George Dawson was a simple man with an awesome attitude. The book is written in a coversational way. I felt like I was sitting in his livingroom listening to a grandparent. He had so many wonderful stories to tell, but above all teaches that us working hard and staying positive is the way to enjoy life-- because after all--what else can you do? "
