"The author, Jack Doueck, using his straightforward and engaging style, successfully motivates the reader to rise above life’s trials and tribulations. Both Mr. Douck’s telling of his own autobiographical history as meaningful learning experiences, and his references to many true recovery stories of others, serve as the most worthwhile lessons for anyone who wants to move to a better life, step by step. Additionally, a riveting, hard to put down, both instructional, and, as an added perk, most entertaining book. A must for anyone who needs a lift and a real positive direction during these tough times of 2020."

"I was both moved and inspired by Jack Doueck's book. Beyond it being well written and easy to read, it was very powerful and personal, especially with all the stories included to make the points the author wanted to make, including his own story. Doueck's personal experience is incredible in itself and how he persevered personally and channeled that perseverance into helping others, including through writing the book, is no less than awe inspiring. We can all learn a lot from the Six Steps to Overcoming Adversity.

I highly recommend reading this book."

I have also become a more effective communicator because of it by using the six steps. It is simple and his techniques make perfect sense. You should read this book. You will be surprised how helpful it is.”
Isaac Shalam, Graduate School Studental
The writer makes these steps and the proper way to approach these issues in your life that everyone has from the perspective of the person going through these hardships.

In the case of this book, the guidance is absolutely useable and relatable.”
