Leisa Cadotte, LPN ~ Surgical Unit - Langley Memorial Hospital, BC

I could not put this book down!
It's an inspirational read for any one facing challenges at any stage of their life.
These heart warming stories reassure that faith is such a strong essential element, not only our biggest challenges, but in our day to day life stuff.
It also speaks about true friendships, fun family traditions, the bond between parents and their kids, and that we can only grow from our mistakes.

As a Nurse, I see first hand, the suffering families go through when a loved one is taken from them. The process of accepting any kind of loss is tough on any one. However, after already facing so much adversity, it was unbelievable to see how he has come through it all with such a positive attitude.

The lessons you'll get from this book will be life changing!
After reading this book, you can't help wanting to be a better person.
The author has written his story is such a way that touches the heart, like no other true story I've read.

Thanks for sharing your amazing story!

I love sitting down with a book that makes me feel. Man Shoes ran my emotions through laughing loud to the depths of despair. Tom Watson is a master story teller. He doesn't just tell a story, he teaches us all how to overcome obstacles in our lives and become a better person. I highly recommend this amazing book!

This book is truly inspiring and the fact that it is based on a true story about how even in the most challenging and oppressed home rearing environment, a troubled boy given an opportunity can grow to become a man of inspiration for others. Man Shoes will give you an honest opportunity to reflect on your own life's experiences and tap into more of your potential. I highly recommend this book, it was an emotional and thoughtful read and I congratulate the author for his courage and integrity to stand up and share his story with such truthful purpose.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading MAN SHOES. This author can really draw you in with his story-telling style. I laughed at his funny stories, and cried at his heartbreak. But most of all, I learned through his experiences that we all, regardless of our circumstances, can overcome and triumph. This is a great story, well written, and one that I will recommend to others, and read again!

I absolutely could not put this book down. I would recommend this book to any father, husband, or wife. It helps put life in perspective and reminds people what is important. Tom Watson draws you into his life by providing detailed descriptions as his life as a young boy, teen, husband, and father. His advice to husbands and fathers is to build a strong foundation for your family by putting your wife first. This provides your children with a stable and loving home with an example to follow on how to treat others.

MAN SHOES was a fantastic read. I love laughing and crying when I read a story. And I sure did my share with this one!! I enjoyed the author's style of story-telling - and his sense of humour. But the coolest part is that his underlying message has stayed with me, and I have made changes in my own life since reading it. THAT is the sign of a GREAT book. One that has an impact on how you look at life AND actually motivates you to make positive changes.

Thanks for writing this inspiring book!

This is an incredible book about a young boy surving an unfortunate beginning in life and thriving as an adult, husband and parent. Tom Watson is a talented story teller. As a busy working mother of two kids, I don't often find time to read for pleasure, but this book was impossible to put down. It's inspiring to learn of someone who has had such hardship in life and still be so thankful and optimistic. A must read for parents to children of any age!
