Praise & Reviews

“Part self-help, part memoir, One Life to Give is Andrew Bienkowski’s insight into what makes life joyful and worthwhile, backed up by stories from his own harsh experience... Like Viktor Frankl’s 1946 classic Man’s Search for Meaning, this book has a keen eye for spotting the best of human spirit and endeavor in the most trying of circumstances... [Bienkowski’s] stories of his family members’ resourcefulness, courage, and faith illuminate the human potential to not only overcome obstacles, but to affect and transform others by acting with integrity, generosity, and purpose... Spend the first part of the winter with this little book, and you will most likely feel renewed joy and gratitude for the people around you and perhaps even for the snow falling on your roof.”

“Reading this book is truly a gift to oneself—a profound and riveting experience that kept me up into the late hours following a journey both immensely provocative and transformative. Andrew Bienkowski gives fully of himself in this book with a power that brings forth a spirit of healing so important at this time in our world. I’m already recommending this to everyone I know.”

“One Life to Give is a compelling and heartwarming saga that will inspire, uplift, and move you to appreciate your loved ones and consider what you can contribute rather than get. Andrew Bienkowski brings a lifetime of experience as a soulful therapist to his account, and for that I am deeply grateful. Anyone who values family, or feels disconnected from loved ones, would benefit immensely from this extraordinary book and the powerful, practical lessons it bestows.”

—Alan Cohen, author of Linden's Last Life
