" 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. "
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. "
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! "
" I just finished The Powers and wanted to let you know how encouraging it is. I will read it again and again. The chapter entitled The Power of Words spoke loudest to me. Thank you! "
" I thoroughly enjoyed reading your book. I truly could not put it down. A fascinating life you have lived. You are an inspiration to anyone of any age as to the possibilities one has if one will persevere. I admire you tremendously and will be buying your book for graduation and other gifts - For Your People - But For All of My "OLD" Friends Also. You Can Quote Me!!! "
