senator inspiring people to make a difference wherever they are and whatever position they are in by helping others.

It's been a long time since I've posted anything, but I recently caught the writing bug, and hope to bring you an interesting story. His hand reached up to his chest absentmindedly as if to massage his constricting heart as he recalled the grizzled, wild smile of his Godfather, Sirius Black. I want to warn you though, that this story deals very seriously with abuse, and I know that can be difficult for some readers. The words of his only friendly relative, even if not by blood, had given him hope that he could finally be free of the Dursleys, that he could live with someone who cared about him.

Former Senate Majority Leader and heart transplant surgeon Frist writes openly about the values and experiences that have shaped his life

Former Senate Majority Leader and heart transplant surgeon Frist writes openly about the values and experiences that have shaped his life. Glad I read through all the book. com User, April 15, 2010. I really liked the layout of the book, how the family was introduced, Sudan, then Frist, then heart transplant history (some medical policy history), then the US Senate. What an exciting read the second half (and the first was good!).

  • Not at all the book I was expecting. There is another book with the same title.

  • I had relatively high hopes for this, as I traditionally have agreed with his actions/opinions. Unfortunately, I quickly realized that all I liked about the book was that I traditionally agreed with his opinions....

    There is nothing the least bit interesting or novel about it. Its the same old stuff you've heard a million times from other people who were famous enough to get a book deal. In my humble opinion, its not worth your time, even if you are an admirer of his. Its essentially a lot of cliches drawn out over a few hundred pages.

    To his credit, I'd still like him to be in the operating room if I needed a heart transplant.

  • Why would anyone be willing to support this man in anyway? He is a pure scumbag, who pretends to be driven by a moral compass. His career shows his "moral compass" constantly points in the direction of profiteering, criminal activity, and striping the rights of Americans to support his constituents.

    The FEC (Federal Election Commission) found that Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist's 2000 Senate campaign committee, Frist 2000, Inc. violated federal campaign finance laws. "In June 2000, Senator Frist took $1 million of the money that had...... been contributed to his 2000 Senate campaign and invested it in the stock market, where it promptly began losing money. In November 2000, Senator Frist sought to collect $1.2 million he had lent his 1994 Senate campaign committee. As a result of the stock market losses, however, Frist 2000, Inc. did not have enough money to repay the loan. Senator Frist solved this problem by having the 1994 and the 2000 campaign committees jointly take out a $1.44 million bank loan at a cost of $10,000 a month interest. Frist 2000, Inc. did not report this debt on its FEC disclosure forms."[29] In both 2005 and 2006, Senator Frist was named one of the "Most Corrupt Members of Congress" [30] by government watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington for ethics inquiries stemming from his troubles with the FEC and an investigation by the SEC for stock sales potentially based on inside information.[31]

  • Reading the title, one would expect to read a collection of stories that would leave you feeling inspired. What you get, instead, is pointless diatribe that leaves you wondering how this man was ever elected into office.

    I found it especially ironic when he wrote he wasn't certain what party he belonged to and one guy spelled it out -- "Republicans believe in the individual to solve problems; Democrats believe in government solutions," Frist writes, as if asserting he's the peoples' man. Funny, Mr. Frist is the man responsible for sneaking the UIGEA into the port authority act, which is definitely keeping the government out of my personal home. NOT.

    This book is only useful as a fire starter or coaster. Outside of that, stay away from it at all costs and do not put a penny into Mr. Frists' slimy pockets.

  • I am not a fan of Bill Frist, but I believe in giving credit to one's intellectual enemies where credit is due. There is no credit due here. I managed to slog my way through the entire book, and I rarely felt as if Mr. Frist were doing anything other than promoting himself. I was hoping to at least find some ideal or issue where I could compliment the man's opinions, political strategy, or ideals. I found no such item. Don't waste your time.

  • Didn't care for the book. Lacked substance IMO. Seemed like it was entirely written by a ghostwriter. Save your money.

  • In a nutshell this book is a collection of mind-numbing stories that were clearly written by a man suffering from a serious case of Napoleon syndrome. His musings about the basis for his time in office said a lot about this man. They effectively demonstrated how he viewed his position of power: To use it to push his religious agenda, while simultaneously stripping the American people of their rights. To be honest, I have no idea how I finished this poor excuse for a piece of literature that is better served as a fire-starter. Save your money!

  • This book reinforces for me that the author was a selfish and self-adoring Senator who had no real desire to help anyone. I knew I didn't want to read the book after the first several pages but wanted to see if any improvements could occur in his writing...not the case. The man brings new meaning to the word hypocrisy as he praises himself again and again for his charitable and caring works that are in direct conflict with his leadership while serving in the Senate.

    I am ashamed of this man and the way he further tarnished politics and goodwill in general. It is my hope that future generations do not allow this sort of egotism to take office. It is a shame that individuals like Mr. Frist can manipulate power and money to take office and blockage the freedoms of millions of Americans. I am disgusted by this author and I would not recommend this book to even my worst enemy. I hope an audiobook version of this book is never allowed or outright banned. It is really that bad.
