Paths Less Traveled

Unlike many autobiographies, this book is not one that indulges the ego of its author. That is not due to any lack of successful endeavours; Hon K Lee is a man that has many accomplishments of which he could crow, instead it is a book that delves into the past of a man that leaves you feeling breathless before the end.

This book is not dry or dull as some autobiographies are; instead it is quite the opposite. The humble tone makes the book easy to read and the book description that comes with it, though it might seem like it is overselling what’s inside, the opposite is definitely true.

It isn’t a book about violence and the hard hitting brutality of the real world that you might expect from the memoirs of a former spy; yes it does have the feel of the latest top ten thriller by Ian Rankin or Clive Cussler, but the overall feel of the book is not one of aggression or self-adulation but instead one that looks at the struggles of human life, how people impact one another in positive ways as well as the negative, how you grow and change as your life progresses and that there is no end to what we learn in our lives.

This book keeps you gripped from beginning to end, has you wanting to read more with every passing word from the eloquent and descriptive way that Hon K Lee brings his life to the imagination of his readers with honesty and a deep wisdom that comes from seeing all aspects of this incredible man’s life in such a humble presentation.

Not only is this book incredible by any auto-biographical standard, it is even more impressive is an indie piece of fiction that anyone from any walk of life can learn from.
