I have enormous respect and admiration for the author Rob Langdon. This memoir is well written and enthralling from start to finish. Enduring and surviving seven years in Pol-e-Charki prison in Afghanistan goes well beyond every readers worst nightmare. It is a tale of resilience that we can all learn from and take the messages and words of wisdom away to use in every day life. Rob has shown the importance of focusing on what we can control and living with integrity by acting according to our own values and being true to this. I also learnt from Rob the importance of a routine every day to ‘get us through ‘ even the most dire circumstances we have been dealt. Highly recommended reading.
