Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It’s no small feat to make a difference in somebody’s life, and Greitens has written a book that is a fitting honor to all the people who made a difference in his. By sharing these stories with young readers, he now has a chance to make a difference in a few more.” New York Times
“In a young-adult marketplace crowded with fictional tales for and about teen women, it’s a relief to discover a book that reaches through the miasma of video games and sports biographies into the minds and hearts of young men, especially one that is so well executed. An autobiography that seeks to lead by example, The Warrior’s Heart largely fulfills its mission with a story that’s as relatable as it is inspiring.” Los Angeles Times
“Adapted from the adult title The Heart and the Fist, this volume has been rearranged, shortened, and streamlined in ways sure to appeal to its new audience.” School Library Journal
“An uncommon (to say the least) coming of age, retraced with well-deserved pride but not self-aggrandizement, and as thought provoking as it is entertaining.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
