Yourself or Someone Like You

By Grant Parkin - ISBN: 9781922993199

RRP: $24.95

Part memoir, part self-help book, Yourself or Someone Like You is here to show you how to exercise the concept of choice and responsibility when faced with challenges…

From surviving an horrific dog attack as a toddler, to the tragic death of his father in a car accident, to the challenges of leaving the country of his birth and then finally to the very emotional divorce from his wife... this story has truth at its heart and purpose at its soul.

Funny, tragic, and at times unbelievable, the story weaves its way from various towns in the regional Eastern Cape Province of South Africa to the cities of the Gold Coast, Sydney and Brisbane.

Yourself or Someone Like You details the traumatic yet very real life experience of author, Grant Parkin, and his amazing outcomes that will inspire your life also...

“This book had me both laughing and crying nearly all the way through. A true alternative perspective to help look at life through a new lens… A masterpiece!” Aaron, Indie Book reviewer
