4.0 out of 5 stars Personal Transformation March 1 2006
By Gregory Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Mr. Sokoloff's "Personal Transformation" is a highly readable,brutally honest account of one man's journey toward complete deafness. What it does to him, how he deals with it and eventually how he triumphs over it's consequences makes for a very inspiring story that leaves anyone confronting adversity in their life with a tremendous sense of possibility. A beautiful story that could be so helpful to so many.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thoughtful view on how to think about what we do with our lives. Sept. 8 2005
By Rocky Mountain Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Kiril Sokoloff is a rare individual with great insights in the worlds of both Wall Street and human emotions and spirituality. When he was faced with the progression of his deafness he found it a source of personal growth instead of becoming more angry and sad and alone. The lesson in the book is how he did this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Powerful Tome. Should be read by everyone March 4 2006
By Barrant V. Merrill - Published on Amazon.com
Kiril Sokoloff's Powerful story of his life and the tribulations he has gone through to achieve peace with himself, is one of the most awsome books I have ever read.

It should be required reading for anyone looking for more meaning in his life, I for one am sending it to my four children.

It can not fail to help anyone who is fortunate enough to read it.

What a terrific and inspiring experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars Transformation is difficult but achievable and finally noble March 2 2006
By Christa H. Green - Published on Amazon.com
Read the book in one evening as I could not stop but was so eager to learn more about the Journey from - light to gray to dark and then mercyfully - light again. However, I was especially moved by the "Leitmotiv" of compassion for human kind that was so pervasive throughout. A quote by Matthew Arnold finally makes sense to me now " Resolve to be thyself; and know that he who finds himself loses his misery ".

Stealing one of the closing words from the book, because it is so appropriate to what I felt after completing it,is-Gratitude to Kiril Sokolff for sharing.

5.0 out of 5 stars personal transformation:executives experience of grief ,loss and renewal Feb. 26 2006
By Lilian Peltz Petow - Published on Amazon.com
I found the book emotional, stimulating and most of all inspirational.People who overcome difficulties and circumvent impediments embodie the american dream. Kiril is a model and spiritual example for us all as we navagate through our lives and the barracades we encounter.

I have reccomeended the book to many and we all have reached similiar conclusions about the messages and joy the book provides.
