Lessons Learned from a Journey into Hell...For many of us, life lessons are learned the hard way. When we reach a place of stability and calm, we are able to look back on those life-changing experiences and reflect on what they meant, and how they changed us. In Hard Lessons, Robert Martin shares the story of his life and of his experiences in Viet Nam...how losing friends and coming back alive shaped his personality and beliefs. As you read this honest, candid memoir, you'll learn that there is no such thing as an ordinary life, and that underneath the surface of friends and relatives you think you know well, there is a story worth telling...wisdom worth listening to. Hard Lessons reminds us that life is short and must be cherished; that there is such a thing as karma; and that every person has a story that deserves to be remembered. Journey with Robert Martin as he remembers...and learn life's challenging and valuable wisdom.
