Breaking Barriers by Peter Altschul – Reviewed by Patty Fletcher
Happy didn’t quite qualify me. I downloaded, and read the entire thing in a day and half. It was wonderfully spectacular!
Reading about Peter, and learning all about his life, was a treasure.
When you read someone’s book, especially if it is one they’ve written of themselves, you really get a look inside, and get to see what makes them tick. Turned out, some of what I thought of Peter, wasn’t quite on the mark, and once I read him, I understood him some better.
As I finished his work, and filed it away, I wondered, “So, when he read my book, Campbell’s Rambles: How a Seeing Eye Dog Retrieved My Life, did he understand me any better?”
I like to think that is the case. Here, in the case of Peter’s book, I have to say, I understood him way lots, and to the good.
I enjoyed learning of his hit and miss romance, job search etc. It made me feel better to see that someone who seemed to always have it together, and was so very smart, could have troubles and trials, like the rest. I loved also, reading of his attending a convention, and how he dealt with things.
I enjoyed the descriptions of his Guide Dog experience. I enjoyed learning the similarities, and differences we have as Guide Dog handlers. That’s just how I am. Some people like to compare cars, I like to compare dogs. Why not? That’s what I drive… 4-On-the-Floor, and slick for sure!
Download and Enjoy this most awesome excellent book.
