Praise For Me…
"In the process of revealing the human being behind the artist, Ricky Martin offers us a testimonyof exemplary honesty and greatness of soul. While I was reading, I remembered a verse from the Persian poet Hafez, ‘Not even seven thousand years of joy can justify seven years of repression.’"—Paulo Coelho
"Ricky Martin has written an extraordinary memoir, the story of a tortured soul who healedhimself by returning to the state of innocence and authenticity. His story will speak to you,because it is, in a sense, the story of humanity—of the sacred and the profane, of forbidden lust and unconditional love. It takes courage to be so ruthlessly honest and transparent, but it is only this kind of courage and this kind of love that can heal the world. Bravo!"—Deepak Chopra, M.D.
