Paul Richards has published his first book, a tell-all about the difficulties achieving justice after being abused as a child. This is a must read as a warning for all parents or as a starting point on the road to recovery for anyone who has been subject to abuse. It is about personal growth and being the best you can be, regardless of the events of your past.
Paul lives and works in NY as a freelance consultant enjoying the art and culture of the Big Apple.
What do you read for pleasure?
I am a big baseball fan and love biographies/autobiographies about Babe Ruth, "Playing the Game"; The Dimaggios: Three Brothers, Their Passion for Baseball, Their Pursuit of the American Dream. Both enjoyable reading and interesting from a point in time.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
My favorite book has always been Sebastian Faulks' Birdsong. The incredible details he covers in minute detail about the fighting is impressive and makes you feel if you are there. Highly recommended with a great love story intertwined.
