AMAZON Reviews for Enthusiastic All the Way:
Inspiring and beautiful life story...
"...that is also relatable and a real page-turner. I couldn’t put “Enthusiastic All The Way” down as I was reading Viktoria’s life story. The book is written with wit and humor and it is impossible not to root for Viktoria achieving her, sometimes seemingly impossible, dreams. Viktoria’s journey is an exceptional one in itself, but also a wonderful representation of the “American Dream” or, really, what happens when we have the courage, determination and will power to follow our dreams and not give up when things get tough. As such, the book has so much power to inspire, guide and open up new ways of approaching life. Sometimes things need to get really difficult, before they get beautiful.

AMAZON Reviews for The Tuscan Who Sold His Fiat...:
The playfulness in the depth of this book.
"This book is a gem! It’s so fun to read, but that’s only the beginning. The author’s observations are not just unique & original, but his great sense of fun and humor shines through his descriptions of the beautiful, absurd mystery that life is. Yet most of all I love his depth. This is a book to keep at your bedside table to dip into before sleeping or before you start the day. Make sure to pack it if you think you could get stranded on a desert island........or when you’re going through any drama life may throw at you. Just open this little book and read a few pages. It will help you tap into your own wisdom and rediscover a more childlike trust in life’s exquisite simplicity, in spite of all its extraordinary and painful complications"!
"Witty, irreverent at times, spicy and totally enjoyable read - unpredictable twists from the author’s authentic experience"!
Fun Book On All Things Italian!
"Imagine you are sitting in a café in Florence on a sunny day, with an Italian friend from that city. He is telling you all kinds of stories about Italy in general, what makes it tick, the unique culture which it has, the things which make people all over the world want to go there at least once….or much more if they have the good fortune to be able to do that. Some of the stories are about his life, growing up there, often involving food (of course!), fun summer trips to local towns which you might have visited yourself. Others are about his time at the Vatican, since he was on a path which many Italian boys tread, that of the priesthood, and he met the Pope more than once. You’re so fascinated by his life there, and by his transformation from priest-to-be to a California father of two and financial executive at a company…..that you lose track of how many cappuccinos you get through listening to him.
That’s how I feel reading this book. It is whimsical, as any story about that country should be, its fun, and a must-read for lovers of Italy and Italians as I am. I think you will enjoy it as much as I did".

Author: The High Engagement Work Culture: Balancing Me and We (Macmillan, 2012)
"This book was refreshingly honest and so entertaining. I enjoyed it each morning with a cup of coffee and each night with a glass of wine while waking through each chapter with Samuele. You don’t want to rush it as it takes you deep into the Tuscan life. It was so fun to share in this life experience, encounters and perspectives of this young Italian man. Thank you for sharing this book of wonderful history and poems".
Funny, entertaining and honest.
"I have never laughed so much. Funny, entertaining and honest. A true story from a Tuscan and how he interprets the world with humor and passion. I would recommend the reading of this book to anybody in need of some real good laughs - and who doesn't".
