Learning about how Dr. Pol grew up during WWII in Europe was quite interesting. He came here from the Netherlands and followed the American Dream. Dr. Pol came to America as an exchange student and stayed for a lifetime. He got married, started his own business in his garage with his wife, and they've worked side by side ever since. Now over 40 years later, he truly is living the American Dream. Many of his qualities remind me of my grandfather - never be afraid of hard work, never give up, find a job you love, treat others as you want to be treated (even animals), stay grounded, and it's great to be young at heart.
If you are interested in animals or if you like reading about hard working people who came to America and became a success story, this book is worth the read.
