This was a memoir that introduced me to varied cultural mores and customs giving me insight into behavioral norms for Eastern European immigrants. I had no idea of the cut-throat pressures of real estate. This was an eye-opener on so many levels. The spiritual aspects of Sawa’s life will be a draw for many. This is not a glossy pictorial; it’s gritty and raw and important. It’s an unvarnished telling that spoke to me.

I always shy away from book about sales people, esprcially people doing expensive reality deals.

I did find humor and I did laugh out loud several times, I enjoyed reading abou
