" Mark Erwin is an amazing man who has had an amazing life (from juvenile delinquent to US Ambassador) and has now written a wonderful book to help others figure out their lives and live the best they can. This is his legacy and I so admire him for it. "
Bill Clinton No avatar Former U.S. President
" Throughout his life Mark has combined his dedication to hard work and his devotion to his family, with a deep commitment to public service. He has tried to repay his country and his community for the opportunities he has been given, and these same chances to the next generation. Mark's life is a great American story and I'm glad he's chosen to tell it. "
John Dodd No avatar President, Jesse Helms Center
" In “The Powers” author Mark Erwin has harnessed the “wisdom of the ages” by telling the stories of some of the world's most interesting and successful people; while detailing the values and character traits that brought them success. This should be required reading for all students entering their senior year of high school! "
