It was as though you were speaking directly to me. I know that it was meant for me to be here today to see you, so that you could open my eyes and I thank you.”

    Katie, Valencia Community College

    “Hi Kirk, I got your book “The Unpopular Truth” from a friend in Florida. I was on my way from West Palm Beach to Tampa and reading the book. Sometimes I was laughing, before I realize I was crying. You motivated me to make some major changes in my life. Thank you so much.”
