As I read "Because," I found myself both liking and disliking it. At times I was so fascinated I couldn't wait to get back to it. Other times I had to force myself to pick up my Kindle and read more of it.
The story tells of the life of a smart, dedicated and, at times, mightily confused man--Robert Sanchez. He inspires others to overcome their doubts and aspire to a happy life. But when a disaster hits him, Robert didn't know how to deal with it. That's when I started to get sick of his incessant self pity. A totally unexpected and very creative ending brought me back to liking the character and the book.

I couldn't put this book down. The lessons learned and taught in this story are deeply profound, insightful and inspiring. All readers will be able to relate in their own way, ask questions personal to their own lives and experiences, and reveal their own truths. Highly recommended read.

It's been a long time since I've read a book I did not want to put down. I almost feel that I should immediately start reading it again to fully absorb all the incredible insights and deep spiritual teachings. Thank you Jack A. Langedijk for an amazing read.

This was the best book I have read in a while, and I read constantly. It was so enjoyable to read about a man who helped so many young people. His honesty in revealing his own failures was like a motivational speech from the heart.
