“Mark Paul Smith offers a courageous memoir that combines the audacity of youth in the 1970’s with the timeless wisdom that comes to those willing to consider the world from a new point of view. Smith’s epic tale invites readers to remove blinders and rose-colored glasses alike in order to see beyond our comfort zones.” —Socratic Parent
