Reviews for Survivor’s Obligation

“This book will definitely change your perspective. … A must read!”
—Susan Hendricks, anchor, CNN Headline News / Weekend Express

“The power of this book lies in two incredible personal stories of survival. When life changes in an instant, we learn quickly what we are made of. These stories remind us that appreciating every day is a choice. Taking ‘survivor’s guilt’ and turning it into ‘survivor’s obligation’ is a wonderful way to describe the gratitude and sense of mission that can follow trauma. This book is for anyone traveling the unpredictable path of life.”
—Lee Woodruff, coauthor of The New York Times bestseller In an Instant

“It has been years since I’ve been so captivated by a book ~ simply could not put it down! Chris & Joel teach life-changing messages through their dramatic and powerful stories. Trust me now, understand me later ~ you need to read this book!”
—James C. Hunter, international bestselling author of The Servant

Survivor’s Obligation is the poignant account of two Air Force officers who somehow survive the unsurvivable. Compelling and raw, the book teaches us that we can overcome emotional and physical trauma by choosing to focus on gratitude, growth, and giving for the future. Everyone needs inspiration. Survivor’s Obligation delivers!”
—Deborah Lee James, 23rd Secretary of the Air Force, and author of Aim High: Chart Your Course and Find Success

“Most of us discover we are mortal when it’s too late, but Survivor’s Obligation offers this wisdom right now. To do as the Zen masters advise—to die before you die so you can truly live—you must read this book.”
—Fred Kofman, leadership development advisor at Google and author of Conscious Business and The Meaning Revolution

“Far too many today are simply surviving their lives. Hearing from true survivors should inspire all of us to thrive with a life of purpose and intentionality—without a life threatening experience as Joel and Chris have had. Thank you for opening bare your life and struggles for us to all be challenged and encouraged by. Joel, let’s climb another mountain together.”
—Pat Gelsinger, CEO VMware, author of The Juggling Act, and founder Transforming the Bay with Christ

“Wonderful book! You don’t want to miss it. It’s very, very inspiring.”
