More importantly, he lays out how we can apply what he’s learned to move through our challenges with less pain and more grace.”

“Do not hesitate to order this book. I have known Rob my entire life, and I always knew he was a remarkable person. But this opened a whole new door for me as a person and in my level of respect and admiration for him. It is a short read, but long in its depth of delivery. It was transformational. I intend to read it again.”
