Posts Tagged ‘book reviews’ MY VERY FIRST BOOK REVIEW (online) …definitely one to remember!

from http://sawriter.wordpress.com/tag/book-reviews/

See the writing journey is not for the “faint-of-heart”, as you need a “tough constitution”.

“It’s not the critic who counts. It’s not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled. Credit belongs to the man who really was in the arena, his face marred by dust, sweat, and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs to come short and short again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming. It is the man who actually strives to do the deeds, who knows the great enthusiasm and knows the great devotion, who spends himself on a worthy cause, who at best, knows in the end the triumph of great achievement. And, who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and cruel souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

― Theodore Roosevelt

A friend (very biased”) suggested I put that “review” on the inside flap of my next book on South Africa. Think I may just do that!
