Reviews of Waiting for Westmoreland (selected excerpts)
“Great book; enjoyable read. I recommend this book to everyone!” says Timothy Harada, author of Myth Shattering . . . I was very encouraged that regardless of the troubles John Maberry faced throughout all the ordeals in his life, he was able to grow and learn from each of them and eventually overcome them.
“I highly recommend it,” says A. Sansbury. “It’s a small book and reads very fast. No matter what your own experience in life, I think you will find this book interesting and impressive, and it may just lead to a whole new life for you, a new awakening.
“A gripping story of the harsh realities of life and the search for a purpose,” says Jim Maglione of Springfield, Virginia. “It is a sensitive portrait of one man’s story, in which the author accurately captures the reality and emotion of coming of age during the 60’s and 70’s. This is truly a compelling story of self actualization.”
“John Maberry has written an insightful book about how he used the material of his own life to take a transformative journey of personal change. The journey itself is difficult enough; to write about it honestly, without excuses, is a rare achievement. . . . ” says Joanne Lozar Glenn, writer and educator, author of Mentor Me.
“Enjoyable Reading,” says Janet, of Alexandria, Virginia. “Having grown up in the same time period, we feel he genuinely depicts the turbulent atmosphere in our country. We recommend this book to all looking for reflection and insight into personal development.”
“I greatly enjoyed and learned from [John Maberry’s] writings. [His] life experiences, views and beliefs are of great value. I am very glad to have read [his] book!” Said Judy Bennett.
“An Enjoyable Life Story,” says Wesley Higaki, “Waiting for Westmoreland is an excellent memoir . . . I was particularly moved and educated by his observations about the politics involved in the unpopular, yet long-lasting Vietnam War. The quality of the author’s writing is excellent . . .”
“Life, Growth, Evolve,” D.G. Kaye, author of four highly rated books, says: “The author takes us on his journey from childhood where he lives through the loss of both parents and moves around different states, different jobs, Viet Nam war, where he shares his candid views and experiences through his struggles physically and internally. His mission to become successful in job and relationships becomes a driving force which keeps him motivated through adversity and rejection is an inspiration for many to take something from his journey.”
