". . .hilariously self-effacing — he was once replaced by another substitute in the middle of class for his incompetence. In addition, his recollection is brimming with thoughtful aperçus, especially about teaching and art. . .An amusing but rambling series of recollections."
"In The Warrior the author reveals his vulnerable and heart filled moments of discovering a deeper journey. He laughs at his experiences as a substitute teacher, a student, a family member and in regards to his inner turmoil. He uses laughter and humility to achieve his unique identity and perspective. The reader will try on a lens that leaves them laughing out loud and thinking deeply about how they treat others. The Warrior is about much more than discovering one's career, rather a spiritual journey with humor and gratitude at its helm."
Lisa A Ratnavira, author of Grief's Labyrnith and other poems
The Warrior is hilarious, poignant, and profound through and through. This book is fun to read – however, the light-hearted, easy-going narrative belies its depth of insight on the human condition. The Warrior is a book that I find myself going back to again and again.
