A Courageous and Motivating Memoir

71W9ZczPPSL[1]Lamentations of a Dad:
How Takeaways Led to Comebacks
By Gene Nalbandian

Lamentations of a Dad is a wonderfully heartwarming memoir that will lift your spirits and show you that even when tragedy strikes, there are always rainbows that emerge from the darkness and gloom.

Gene was born into an ordinary family who was proud of their culture and beginnings. He graduated from college and was signed by the Chicago Cubs as a promising pitcher. This was a dream come through for Gene. But sadly, a tragic injury ended his career with the Cubs and he had to search another path in his life. But this set back let to another comeback later on.

Gene’s life was also speckled with several other setbacks. He married, divorced, became an entrepreneur, became a single dad, and experienced the death of his son to a drug overdose. But even in the middle of all of these tragic experiences, there were always the comebacks and the rainbows that appear from the darkness.

Gene is a true testament of strength and courage. He shows that we can all learn to cope and not get discouraged, even when there are many really awful things that happen to us in our lives. His walk and trust in the Lord has always given him the strength to endure. All the negative and positive events of his life have made him who he is today, a strong, courageous, grateful, and peaceful man.

I recommend this book to anyone who has experienced a lot of hardship and tragedy and feels trapped by all these events. Gene’s book will enlighten you and give you the strength to courageously carry on.
