    As a Sociology major, and Clinical Social Worker who specializes in trauma recovery, I have had many questions about what I am seeing in Romania. (A volunteer with the Red Cross, in 2000, I began doing short term stints in Romania. I now live in Sfantu Gheorghe, Covasna County.)

    Your entertaining, and yet, at times, heart wrenching book is providing many answers to my questions. Your last two paragraphs quoting King Michael about how Communism snuffed out a spark in the people he grew up with (on pages 138 – 139) “hit the nail on the head.”

    Observing the “learned helplessness” which seems to be a national epidemic, I began to search for the answer as to why so many Romanians think they “can’t”… so they don’t even try. My first conclusion was exactly what King Michael said.

    I’ve received many other “speculations.” The King was there! He witnessed the change, and you recorded it. Thank you for this most interesting and entertaining book!
