Quote from Martin Rogers in a sports article published May 23, 2014 when speaking on Donovan's goal to live a life in pursuit of learning and self-education.
Ranier Maria Rilke
"This is my absolute favorite book. Rilke receives letters from a a young, aspiring poet and this book comprises Rilke’s 10 responses to these letters. The answers transcend time, gender, occupation and religion."
"For those of us that have dogs, this book should be a mandatory read. I don’t often read novels but this one captured my imagination from the first chapter and had me bawling by the end."
"This book changed my life. Growing up, we often thought we had no choice but to indulge in the world of fast “food.” This book takes a graphic and honest look at what goes on in the fast food industry and realities are incredibly disturbing. I think this should be a must read for children in school."
"I am a massive American football fan and I am fascinated by the inner workings of the NFL. This book obviously became a popular movie later on but it has so many interesting story lines and is so inspiring on so many levels."
"I am a big fan of Malcolm Gladwell and this book was riveting to me. Whether you agree with his theories or not, he is undeniably brilliant and forces you to look at the world in a new and different way."
