    Dear Hein,

    I put aside the many books on my bedside table and read yours. It is wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your story and watching you unfold before my very eyes. Reading your story helped me see my own story. So, thank you so much for being a faithful guide–telling your story so openly and simply. I’m really glad you wrote it, and very appreciative of you sharing it with all of us in Berlin. How do I buy a few more?

    Many thanks,
    Liz, Boston

    Hi Hein,

    I just finished reading, I’m Back and wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed and learned from it. Your honesty throughout the book was both refreshing and inspirational. For example, when you talked about “your loyal soldier, “ I could really resonate and wanted to introduce my soldier to yours. Mine tells me, “you are not smart enough, calm enough, physically good enough to try…” I am on a journey to lovingly thank my soldier and ignore her guidance. Hearing that I have friends on that journey too was quite supportive and affirming. You are a good and honest writer — do not be afraid to share more of your passion/gift with others. Tell you soldier it is time for him to “take a rest.” 🙂

    With appreciation and affection,
    Marie

    Dear Hein,
    Once more I wish to thank you for the inspiring and illuminating words of your book. You write with brave honesty and captivating humor about your experience and in doing so touch universal sentiments we can all share and learn from. I just finished the book yesterday and enjoyed it very much. I must tell you that I read it as I was fasting and doing a preparation for a colonoscopy so in a unique way I felt deeper solidarity with some sections of your book. (end result of C-I am clean as a whistle!)

    Secondly, I want to say how much I learned from and appreciated your presence in the Master Class. You always struck me as one who has his feet firmly on the ground with solid experience of human frailty and life’s challenges yet was one who has kept high ideals up front in a very human and courageous way. I thank you for that. Your clients are fortunate to have you guide them.

    I wish you well in your work and happy times with your family these summer months. When I was a boy I used to sail with an uncle, but never kept it up…maybe you can offer learning journeys at sea for some of us old timers of the maser class!!

    Dear Hein,

    Your book accompanied my journey from Berlin to Shanghai. I did not feel I was on a journey of flight but a journey of yours which you shared vividly in the book. I felt I was there and understood everything you wrote. I may not comprehend the depth but I saw you and felt myself. It helped me retrieved the feeling I had during the solo in cap cod.

    Give you a lotus.

    Appreciative,
    Dana

    Hoi Hein,

    Heb deze week met veel plezier je boek gelezen en veel herkend!
    Wat moedig dat je dat aan gegaan bent en ook dat je dat zo open durft te delen.
    Maar ja….”is niet het meest intieme, het meest universele? “ Je zult er velen mee raken!

    Hoe dan ook je hebt een aanstekelijke manier van vertellen, en schrijft zoals je
    praat; uit één stuk, waardoor ik tegen de
    slaap in (in bed) door wilde lezen!
    groetjes Carla

    “We have worked with Hein for more than four years on a strategy plan for the bank. His entrepreneurship and his willingness to dive into the ‘U’ with us has contributed highly to the plan. It was beyond consultancy, a real joint venture. Reading ‘I am back’ explains why it worked”

    Peter Blom, CEO Triodos Bank Group

    “You have a unique style of storytelling that is very engaging and connects to the reader. Isn’t it human to struggle the way you have… the way all of us do. People share this quality and they want to read the stories of others and their experiences. You hold the reader’s attention and anticipation. You tell your story with humor; with great honesty and truth, in a way that connects your humanity to others; and with important details. I found myself painting the pictures of your words in my mind. The story flows. In your words, “Nice.”

    “From now you’re a great author to me! You gave me the opportunity to travel with you, to sit on your shoulder, to share your thoughts and feelings during your courageous personal journey and writing process. And yes, you made it! ”I’m back” is a very intimate story. After reading this I know for sure, the only choice I have is to follow my heart.”
