Everyone in our group thoroughly enjoyed this book. There were lots of life lessons talked about that we could all relate to. We were full of admiration for Ruby.

All thoroughly enjoyed the book. A real eye opener. We found some areas repetitive as to how people can succeed, and some members didn't enjoy the writing style.

We were all agreed that Ruby Tui is a most remarkable person, and greatly admired the way she has overcome adversity and what was at times an extremely difficult childhood. We likewise were very struck with her choice to give back, to try to help other people struggling with the issues she confronted. The book considered as a book was ok, but it was really the life behind it that we responded to. In sum, we responded to her and her message, but the book as a book - not quite so much.

Wonderful book. All of us were overwhelmed with the emotions we felt as we experienced the highs and lows of Ruby's life. As one reviewer said, "A phenomenal book from a professional athlete"!!!

We really liked this book, and several with older grand-daughters were resolved to buy it for them. A real upward lift - a 'value of positivity and purpose story'. GREAT!
