Amazing photo-documentation with such a sensitive insight. You have the ability to make the audience feel as if they were right there during the whole process. Thank you for helping us understand trauma and recovery with a sense of wonder and hope. I look forward to reading the book and learning more. I will now become an organ donor as a result of this story.

Thank you!

Coos Hamburger is a gifted photographer and writer. I look forward to experiencing more of his art. Thank you for sharing your gifts with the public.

Mr. Hamburger's lovely text and illuminating photography inspire belief in humanity. One's own minor issues and challenges quickly fade away. We need to appreciate how lucky we are. This book is ideal for anyone who needs some uplift, or who appreciates what modern, moral medicine is capable of.

A heart touching and inspirational story filled with courage and hope. Everyone involved are amazing people and a tribute to being brave pioneers. I could not put it down until I finished it. Mr. Hamburger did a wonderful job documenting the journey of Richard, his family, his medical team and support system. Reading this book is life changing!

To have taken part in such an amazing recovery of a human life is extraordinary. The doctors, the donors, and everyone involved sacrificed so much of their lives to help others. Faith in the love and kindness from one human to another was restored for me.

This book is so very inspirational and heart touching! Not only is it a true God given miracle it surely defines the meaning of strength, courage, faith and never giving up hope.

Embracing life's amazing feats, this book is a riveting true story of a young mans face transplant and those who made it happen. It reminded me about life's obstacles and to never give up hope for anything and also that everything in life has a Devine purpose. I cried tears of sorrow and tears of joy while reading. The photography is won't put this read down!

This is a unique achievement, both medically and as photojournalism. How two tragedies came together to save one future. Highly recommended!
