I’m so glad I read this book. I don’t go to comedy nights and only know Anh Do through TV, yet I’ve always been impressed by his smile and the way he comes across. Happy to say, what you see is what you get – Anh Do is a genuinely happy person, a positive influence on the world at large, I’m sure. 


Here’s a man who, as a little boy, suffered the trauma of being a ‘boat person’ along with members of his family. Yet there is no self pity here. No victim mentality. Just an attitude of ‘It could be so much worse, so now it’s so much better, so that’s just great and I’m going to make what I can of it’.


They say that you’re the sum of the five people you spend the most time with. I know quite a few who would benefit from spending a little time with Anh Do. In fact, we all should. And the good news is, there is now a children’s version of the book available – get ’em while they’re young to help instill Anh’s great attitudes!


The Happiest Refugee is available in bookstores and online pretty much everywhere – as it should be! 


Highly recommended.
