First off let me say my son knows Michael, and I met him a few times. When I heard they were walking to New York, I though wow what a challenge. As I began reading I had no idea how difficult it was going to be and the challenges they met along the way. The night I downloaded the book, I started reading, it was well after 3 am when I forced myself to stop. So for the next three/four nights I read, and loved the determination of all three of the men and not giving up when they could have right in the beginning. Well guys, I am waiting for a heart transplant, and will think of how to not let anything take over what your end result will be. Mine is a heart and I am walking towards that goal every day. (Mike will know when I reach my New York)!! I do hope I see movie in the future for this book. Inspirational!!
