Heroes from the Attic: A Gripping True Story of Triumph
4 journalers for this copy...
"... Herman writes with an offbeat sense of humor and a touch of irony that will at times make you laugh and at times make you cry, but "Heroes from the Attic" is a journey of both heartache and triumph that you won't soon forget."

The rating of my own memoir is based on feedback from readers worldwide of both editions: It is often "...the best book I've ever read."
If you have personally endured great suffering, do not read the first part of my memoir at bedtime. It is cathartic. Nonetheless, previous such readers were inspired by my humor and triumphs, and found courage and strength within themselves to deal with their own problems.

It's an extraordinary life, that the author lived.
The book is full of humour and full of sadness, sometimes both at the same time. A joy to read and a really good memoir.
After having read the book ( sorry it took some time ;-) I must say it is a remarkable autobiography. I liked it very much and I do highly recommend it.
Just allow a personal remark: I'm glad you've made it, Herman. In both ways - In your live and by writing the book!
