|In "Aftermath of Experience," George Fragos has created a testimony to his sincere belief that personal responsibility, honesty and positive attitude are essential for a productive and happy life. In the final analysis it is you that determines who you are and what you’ll achieve. Those that blame others for their lives are only looking for an excuse for not accepting personal responsibility themselves. Take charge and have a good life. It's not the events in our lives that define us. It's how we take the lessons learned from those experiences and choose to go forward that is the measure of us.|
Self determination is sadly missing in a world of entitled victims who define themselves by their success with the personal attack of others. The culture war is transforming us from a single country of individuals into divisive groups devoid of tradition — individuality disappears as we're forced into stereotypical sub-groups. What really makes the book stand out is the personal touch of the memoir style and George Fragos' willingness to share those events that many would rather forget. Events that for many would have been the roots of their failures in life. He's been to hell so many times it almost feels like home. It started with childhood psychological and physical abuse highlighted with the memory of a sexual molestation. Still his positive attitude rose above it all to result in a life full of accomplishment and adventure. His message — you can do the same. How many amongst us have been a successful photojournalist, soldier, software engineer, corporate executive and finally a freelance web site developer and writer. His life is filled with interesting experiences and his story is a testimony to the message of "Aftermath of Experience" — choosing to move forward with positive attitude.
