I bought this book to read because Dr. von Noorden performed surgery on our son when our son was only 2 years old. We met Dr. von Noorden at the Ophthalmology Department of the Texas Children's Hospital in Houston in 1979 and the surgery followed the next summer. We were very impressed by his knowledge and his caring attitude toward our son. The surgery was a success and it corrected his "overaction of the oblique muscle". Today our son is 35 years old and has done well in life partially due to the good eyesight that Dr. von Noorden and his team gave him through their excellent care.

When I came across this book, I had to read it because I wanted to learn more the life of this talented man. What a great read it is giving us some insight into life before Nazi Germany became the force in the world that would lead to WWII. Then, at the age of 16 when he was forced to serve in the youth military corps and sustained an injury that would remind him of what the Nazis had done to his dear country, Dr. von Noorden emerged from his experiences ready to find a new life in the new world, one in which he would give of his talents to serve others.

I highly recommend this book to all who would want to know what Germany was like before, during, and after WWII from the perspective of an insider who served and suffered because of the propaganda of the Nazi regime but who emerged from his sufferings to be able to forge a new life and bring sight and joy to the lives of many others.

The author presents a very personal memoir of his life starting as a youth in pre-World War II Germany, gives the picture of an innocent caught up in that horrific conflict with eventual transformation into a famous scientist-clinician in the USA. It is well written and a very engaging history of those times.

Well written and compelling description of a teenage boy fighting and surviving in the battle of Berlin and then reaching the pinnacle of the medical profession in the united Sttes. I agree, more than a memoir. A great read for anybody who faces adversity and decides to overcome it.
