I'm not a very emotional person, but the tears were rolling by the end of the first chapter. I knew right away this was going to be a very touching book. It was that moment and these two sentences that sealed the deal for me.
"Such a simple concept, yet so true: that which we manifest is before us; we are the creators of our own destiny. Be it through intention or ignorance, our success and our failures have been brought on by none other than ourselves."
I highly recommend this book to everyone. Even if you are not a dog person or into race car driving, I promise this book will have an impact on you. FYI, I hate race car driving.
