"I really enjoyed this book. Not only the education about aortic aneurysm but the honest account of the whole ordeal. A strong 4.5 stars." -Amazon Review of Barefoot in November

I really enjoyed this book. Not only the education about aortic aneurysm but the honest account of the whole ordeal. A strong 4.5 stars.
When the author discovers he is a ticking time bomb due to his aortic aneurysm he decides to deny, ignore and rationalize his condition to suit his life. One can only think, thank God for Nicole. His wife took the reins heckling and cajoling until he decides to do the follow up cat scan to determine the level of severity. What follows is the surgery and recovery which has been described with such candor you really appreciate what he survived.
After such a massive surgery and his wife's surgery they commit to running a marathon, and finish. With a great time. Something most of us without that history cannot do.
I like that Benjamin not only survived but showed such an appreciation of his blessings by the end of the book. He struck me of someone who had his eye on the prize and missed most everything not related to that prize. I'm glad he is bringing awareness to aortic aneurysm. I think it gets swept up in the heart attack category too much, and is obviously something that shouldn't be ignored! 
Look forward to reading more from this author.
