Product description

Review

Chris Robbins has given us an irresistible phenomenon: obstinate, brilliant, morally incorruptible and one of the bravest men you will ever read about. ― John le Carré

The magnetic potency of Michel Thomas's teaching is partly explained by the Test of Courage, as much a thriller as a biography and not to be missed. ― Emma Thompson, Academy Award-winning actress

A vivid, life-affirming narrative that exerts considerable power. ― The Times

Steven Spielberg crossed with Tolstoy crossed with John Le Carré... ― The Independent

It gives a whole new perspective to the idea of being a hero...Fascinating. ― Open Book – BBC

This book is a right riveting read, a humdinger of a yarn... Michel Thomas has seen and done things the rest of us can only have a morbid curiosity about... One is left wondering about the nature of heroism itself, and of sacrifice. ― Scotland on Sunday

Fascinating... The Test of Courage chronicles, not only European history since the First World War, but also Michel Thomas's amazing acts of integrity and courage. ― Jewish Telegraph

Long ago the bestsellers were stories of wartime heroism... Thomas was a hero too but his exploits have had to wait until we were ready to dig a little deeper into the complexities of the war... The book is a long-belated catharsis... At one level it is an old-fashioned tale of wartime exploits; but the dark themes underneath are just right for post-Schindler Spielberg. ― Hamstead & Highgate Express

A remarkable biography of an astonishing man... the author paints an enthralling portrait of triumph against evil and adversity. ― Kingsbridge Gazette

A quite exceptional biography... moving... remarkable... ― The Southland Times (New Zealand)

This has to be the one of the best examples that we are all put on this earth for a reason... I could hardly put it down and only relented when I had to do some real work... I have now decided that I too can learn a language as his philosophy on learning is one that I can relate to and hope that in time educational institutions will too.

A truly inspirational read!!

Reader review, Amazon.co.uk

Michel Thomas' biography is a must-read for anyone interested in the triumph of humanity over the seemingly overwhelming forces of evil. ― Reader review, Amazon.co.uk

Five stars is not enough for this gut wrenching biography... an awe inspiring read, which really puts one's own meek trials and tribulations into perspective. The final chapter has a quote: "Often the test of courage is not to die, but to live." This sums the book up. ― Reader review, Amazon.co.uk

This book will stir your soul. ― Reader review, Amazon.co.uk
