Martin Greenfield is a remarkable man. The first half of the book is about his survival of the Holocaust and losing his entire family from Czechoslovakia. The determination and resourcefulness are beyond my imagination.
The second half is about his journey to America and his hardworking rise to success and appreciation of our country. I wish every one here would read this after listening to people tear down our country day after day. It is a good reminder of just how lucky most of us were to be born here, be able to vote, and with good health -be able to work and find your American dream.
