Filled with anecdotes, lessons learned, and an inspirational message
for everyone, who believes that hard work breeds success, this
moving autobiography shares the remarkable story of Angus Munro.
Munro is just three when he suffers from appendicitis and spends
several weeks in a Vancouver hospital as his family struggles to
survive the Great Depression. After finally arriving home, Munro
asks his sister, "Where is Mummy?" and is promptly told his mother
doesn't live there anymore. It is this traumatic event that changes
the course of Munro's life forever. His father is suddenly a single
parent while simultaneously turning into Munro's mentor and hero. He
teaches Munro the motto, "Always do the right thing," while raising
his children in an environment that is at the very least hectic, and
more often completely chaotic.
Through a potpourri of chronological and heartfelt tales, Munro
reveals how he learned to view incidents in life in terms of
responsibility, recognition, personal conduct, and consideration for
others. Despite dropping out of school at a young age, Munro
perseveres, eventually attaining professional success.
Munro's memoir is a wonderful tribute to his father's legacy and the
greatest lesson of all-Whatever you do, follow through.
