I've shared many portions with my young family to illustrate caring, help, and hope—both in challenging times and in times that could otherwise lack consequence. I'm so thankful for this message and for the man that delivered it so authentically.
I was blown away by the ability of small acts of kindness to move a man from despair to hope and prosperity! One Degree makes me see everyone in a different light starting with me.
After reading One Degree, I found the story compelling and personal to my own family. Now my 11 year –old son and I are reading the book together. Everyone with children must read this book. It could positively change the course of your family!

One Degree offers a refreshingly authentic account of a life well-spent and triumphant in the face of adversity (from within and without).
One Degree is an inspirational story that will motivate everyone to believe in the power of never giving up hope. Many of us have faced or will face incredible challenges but we can prevail. This book proves it!

It grabs your brain and won’t let go!
"One Degree" is fast forward summary of the rags to riches story. It takes you from the lowest to lows and the highest of highs all stemming from having a simple conversation with any perfect stranger.
Don’t cringe the next time someone on a plane strikes up a conversation. They could be your One Degree.
An ENERGIZING story, one that shows the importance of never giving up hope. One Degree demonstrates that even on our worst days we have so much to offer others and ourselves if we will only risk connection.

"I couldn't put this book down! I don't have time to read anything more than text or medical books BUT once I started I couldn’t stop! One Degree will move your soul.”

I started to read One Degree on Sunday morning and by Sunday evening I was finished. I could not seem to put the book down. Every time I did sit it down, I found myself trying to figure what was coming next so I was picking it back up to see. One Degree is a book that everyone can relate to in some way and you will truly be inspired.
POWERFUL AND ENGAGING COVER TO COVER. A must read for everyone. One Degree, the story of Paul Wittwer's life and determination in overcoming staggering obstacles, physical, psychological and financial, is a roller coaster ride with purpose and a mission."
One Degree is an open invitation into one man’s journey through a life of pain and joy, wealth and homelessness, while selflessly devoting time, energy and resources for ALL of us to enjoy a richer life.
Your book was the first that I have read since high school. I don't like to read much, but just getting to be able to read about all that you have been through, I just couldn't stop reading until I was done.
I began listening to the audio book read by the author before I went to bed. Suddenly it was 2am as hours had flown by. What a story, I was hooked! One Degree has something for and about all of us!
Paul's account of his life puts your own current life in perspective. It confirms that contentment is not what you want, but the realization of how much you already have within "One Degree".
One Degree is a powerful reminder of how closely we are all connected, and the impact we can have on one another's lives if we simply take the time to look around. I will never approach boarding an airplane in the same way after reading Paul's story.
Inspirational in the face of adversity
