This is a truly inspirational book, or perhpas more correctly, Dan Caro is a truly inspirational man.
This is a book and a story that will stick with me always and I can only hope to apply just a little bit of his will and determination to my own journey in life.
Not only did this man battle so much adversity but continues to assist others.

This is a very inspirational book. It shows that someone can choose their attitude. Though Dan's life has not been easy he has decided to make the most of the opportunities that he has had. He even attended Toastmasters in order to be a better public speaker and encourage others with his story.
I thought this book was very interesting and well written.
The majority of Dan's body was burnt at a very young age. He takes you threw the pain and adjustments he had to make in his life to become a successful musician and motivational spear.

This book is a must read
A stunning autobiography of a man with more courage and self confidence than can be imagined. Burned at the age of 2, he not only overcame obstacles but used them to inspire hundreds more to overcome theirs.

I had the chance to meet Dan at my CMEA conference this last January (2013). He is very inspirational and his story is amazing! What a musician!
very inspirational. But hard to read that someone went through so much tragedy.
