I'm not an avid reader, but I finished this one in 3 days on my recent vacation. INCREDIBLE story of a guy who ran track in the 1936 Olympics, then went to war (WWII in the Pacific). Got shot down in his bomber over the Pacific, survived for 40-something days on a life raft, and then got captured and spent 2+ years in a Japanese POW camp. If ever you feel like your entitled life is difficult, just read what this guy went through and you'll feel pretty good about what you have.
