Blurbs From the Book!

This is one of the images that unfortunately couldn't be included in the book!

Lovely blurb from my forth coming book, "The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man.” This from Thelton Henderson, Judge (Ret.) United States District Court.

“The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man" is the vibrantly alive, candid, and compelling memoir of a son of Jewish Immigrants from the Bronx, an intensely restless soul, ever in search of the next adventure, while driven to making the world a better place along the way.”

And another.

"The Extraordinary Life of an Ordinary Man" PRAISE FOR THE EXTRAORDINARY LIFE OF AN ORDINARY MAN An action-packed memoir both affecting and fun: from a boyhood in the Bronx to giving presidential lectures at Oxford, running anti-poverty programs in the US to wheeling and dealing for development projects overseas. Al Hirshen writes a disarmingly honest, introspective, sensitive but realistic portrait of working in foreign cultures, hobnobbing with wealthy investors, taking on officialdom and corruption, all the while trying to improve the lives of poor families and minorities.
