Social Worker's Review of Watch Me Rise!
Monday, October 16, 2017 at 9:46AM

As a social worker for 33 years I have heard many tragic stories. Doug Luffborough’s book Watch Me Rise about his life story was heartbreaking but so inspirational to all. He gives hope to everyone and teaches us never to give up no matter how devastating the circumstances and to ignore the negative people that get in the way of our success.


I personally know his mother, who he credits his success among other positive influences in his life. I encourage everyone to read his book as it will make you a better person regardless where you are in your journey.


Thank you Doug for having the courage to face the world against all odds and to share your life challenges and triumphs with all of us. You have certainly made a difference in my life.
