“Every generation for eons has looked to its youth for energy, intellect and progress. Many people feel this may be the first generation of Americans less well educated and motivated than their parents. Is anyone doing anything about this predicament? Yes –Travis Angry with his book and personal appearances. The most powerful role model is one who has most recently overcome the adversity faced by many American youth. Travis connects and his audiences correct. Given enough time and exposure, Travis will be an important influence on the next generation
of working Americans.”
“Travis’ story personifies the American ideals of self-reliance and perseverance. His deep faith in God gave him the strength to overcome some incredible odds. Younger generations face a complex world that will test their ability to succeed. Anyone who reads this book will know even the tallest obstacles can be overcome with faith and a resolve to never give up.”
“Travis shares from his heart the road of a young man who decided a life misunderstood wouldn’t be his excuse for being a failure. He now stands strong in the midst of life’s daily trials serving God, raising his two small children and pressing toward his passion for helping others.”
“Life has many challenges. Most of them come when you least expect them. Travis and I met right after we both had experienced a similar challenge at a similar stage of life. It was huge having a friend and brother to talk to about what he had learned and taken away from his battle with cancer. I think this book does a good job of documenting the trials Travis has gone through and what he’s learned from it all. I know it helped me seeing his attitude of how to make it through life’s storms and how to digest those trials and learn from them. It helped me back when we first met, and helps me today whenever things in life get tough.”
“Change is a beautifully written, transcendent story of self-discovery, self-discipline, and personal growth. It will be an inspiration to everyone who reads it; and for many, it will be the epiphany that changes their lives for the better.”
“Change: If I Can, You Can, is an autobiography of difficulties, drama, and determination. Travis’ story is a journey that youth, parents, and those who love and care for our youth will rejoice in, identify with, and find ‘hope, through. And, hope is the foundation of the change that transforms inabilities to ability, dysfunction to function, and losing to winning! A ‘real story’, a ‘real journey’ of struggle, and a ‘real life changed to be a change mentor for others.”
“Travis’ story is proof that the American Dream is still alive! With hard work, determination and perseverance overcoming many challenges he has become an inspirational figure to Americans, both young and old.”
“Travis Angry has written an at times brutally honest story. And through it all—even the darkest of times—there is the hope and promise of change. You’ll be inspired.”
