    Never give up

    Anh Do's story is one of courage , love and joy. The book is an inspiration to us on how to approach life. From the nightmare of communist Vietnam, the high seas, then the strange new land, Anh and his family go though hardships with courage and never give up. We can be thankful our numbers are bolstered by people of his ilk. And he is funny too. I thoroughly recommend this book to lift your spirits.

    The best book I have read in years

    BAs the only child of European refugee parents who found their way to Australia to start a new life, I identified with Anh to some small degree. As I read his story my feelings alternated between amazement, sorrow, admiration and empathy, liberally sprinkled with laughter. His parents' philosophical attitudes and positive inspirations towards life demonstrate that indeed, love can conquer all. The tears of sadness and laughter will flow, as will your admiration for Anh and his incredible family. A "must read" for everyone!

    Inspirational Story

    What a truly inspirational story. Makes me realise how lucky I am to have been born in Australia. I was especially impressed by Anh's attitude of thankfulness for the opportunity of living in Australia and his never ending quest to give something back to this country that had given him that chance.
