“On Borrowed Time…” Reviews:

“Anthony has written an amazing memoir. I am so proud of the young boy I knew, who has become this incredible man, who has the courage to tell the story of his difficult and painful journey. His voice rings with honesty and understanding. He was never truly lost, and I hope his next chapter tells us of the help his telling of his story brings to others who need to be reminded to never give up!” — Ellie Spillet.

“Anthony’s game industry knowledge shows as this book is informative and fun to read. All you have to do is open the book, and it takes you on a ride you can’t experience anywhere else. Written as if I was living in the game, and only when I stopped did I realize I was still on my couch reading his remarkable memoir.” — Andrew V, Razor Edge Games & Former MSNBC staff writer.

“Just finished reading On Borrowed Time, read it straight through and couldn’t put it down. Buckle in, it’s an exciting ride touching all emotions. A great story of triumph in the face of life’s events that could bring anyone into a very dark place. I laughed, cried, what a ride, loved it!!!!!” — Susan T.

“Anthony was a former student of mine and both my wife and I read his book. It is a truthful story of loss and gain. It chronicles the agony of choices made and of the lessons learned in the process. His desire to bear his soul so that others can learn is as admirable as it is inspiring. Again and again, you ask how lightning can strike the same person again and again. It speaks of a saved man, delivered from sickness and pain and circumstances to triumph. This man has a story he has to tell. You will be inspired. I highly recommend this book.” — Bryan Burrell.
