"Not what you expect but far better"
Noah Galloway essentially has delivered a book that says " If your gonna like me like me for who I really am and not who you may think I am". This book is so interesting not because it's about his overcoming physical challenges but his honesty about his struggles as a man, husband, father and with his own personality. In the end its not so much about overcoming as coming to grips.
"too much detale on very simple actions"
some of it
the most interesting was the way he comforted the new states of he's disability
the least interesting was he's combat stories
that no matter what happens to the physical the straight of the spirit becomes more valuable
"Good Story Teller"
I like Noah's voice so I enjoyed listening to the story. I'm not sure I'd particularly like him as a person though. I think he does good things more for recognition than from his heart. Also, I think his ego is out of control and he's careless with the hearts of others.
"What an adventure!!"
Noah's story is fantastic! I couldn't stop listening. I hate that he had to endure so many bad things.....but he has made all of those negative things into great experiences! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to what he has going on with his next adventure! Thank you Noah for your service and you are paying it forward in every sense of the term!!
"Real, practical inspiration!"
Really enjoyed this story. It's real life, no holding back here. Painful injuries and mistakes do not define you and that's Noah's message. What defines you is moving forward and attacking life all the while being thankful for all you have. That's what I got from Noah's message. Highly recommend this audiobook!
"Great story but walk away feeling like I heard"
At times the author repeats whole conversations as he is flirting with women and it sounds like two teenager's talking to each other "So then I said", "So then she said", "So then I was like", "And then he goes". Not just once, a few times. These could easily be left on the cutting room floor and the book would be better for it.
"Inspirational & Honest"
Noah pulls back no punches in telling his story. He takes accountability for his actions both good and bad. He offers what he can to the reader and helps you to see your own vulnerabilities as he shares his story. Excellent book..
"Inspiring, emotional, Soul jolting! Movie please!!"
ABSOLUTELY, already have & will continue to do so. This is a raw & very truthful story of an everyday man with every day struggles, and then their multiplied....yet he refused to give up or give in. His inner strength, determination and will to overcome & rebuild himself to be the best man he can be for himself & for his children is one we could all take lessons from! A true Hero, for America and for his children!
Please make this a movie!!
As tough as it was, chapter 18 was my favorite. I'm a Veteran, a War Veteran, so I know exactly what that "operation" means to a soldier. I cried reading it, and I bawled listening to it! I felt chapter 18!
From Tragedy to Triumph.....A Superhero Emerges 🇺🇸
Thank you Mr Galloway for your service, your sacrifices and for sharing your story with us. #HOOAH
