Retired Navy pilot Dave Carey tells the story of how he and his fellow POWs survived more than five years in the prisons of North Vietnam. He analyzes the strengths and strategies that made their survival possible and shows how these forms of faith--in self, others, country, and God--can carry everyone through personal and business crises. A moving epilogue tells of his wife's battle with breast cancer and her death, and how the same strengths helped her and those around her.

I WORE A POW BRACELET IN THE 1970'S AND THIS IS THE POW. HIS ENDURANCE AND FAITH AND HOW HE AND THE FELLOW POW'S COOPERATED AND COMMUNICATED WAS VERY INSIGHTFUL AND HELPFUL. GOT A GLIMPSE OF THE "HANOI HILTON", AMONG OTHER POW CAMPS AND THE WAY THEY WERE TREATED.

I got a chance to meet the author at a seminar and came away thinking he is a genuine, strong, wise and loving man---I looked forward to reading his soon-to-be published book. When I received "The Ways we Choose" in the mail, I set a side a Saturday afternoon to read it---I wasn't disappointed. Dave goes beyond the details of life in a POW camp and gives practical, from-the-heart insights of what it took to win in a man-made hell. The account hits home---these were regular people with challenges and faults who accomplished almost superhuman results in the worst of conditions. Dave also spends some time helping the reader use these insights in everyday life. There are no games or gimmicks here---everyone can learn from and apply Dave's experience in making good choices in good and adverse times. The style is narrtative, humorous, and personable. The story is not romanticized or sentimental; its inspirational and likely to move the reader to action, hope (and a few tears).

I am fortunate enough to have known Dave (and Karen) Carey for most of my life. Since Dave is the most inspirational person I know, I've always been eager to hear his story from cover to cover (I've grown up hearing snippets). I received this book 2 days ago, read it late into tonight, and had to review it immediately. Dave wrote his story perfectly - it is easy to understand and follow. More importantly, it is easy to glean the life lessons he teaches within. This book is awe-inspiring. It helps to put anything into perspective (visa bills and traffic jams are pretty inconsequential compared to this). I have waited a long time to hear this story from start to finish and now any reader has the opportunity to hear it. I think everyone should take advantage of learning how to deal with the curveballs of life from this man who seems superhuman in his emotional strength (but who continually reminds us we are as capable as he).
A friend gave me this book and it changed my life. I realized the error of my negative thinking and self-pity. Furthermore, I gained valuable perspective on real problems are and how we should face even the toughest circumstances. We cannot control everything and we often don't want to trust God until we have to. I met Dave Carey last week when he came to my school where I teach, and told his story to our student body. He also gave his testimony in Christ. The fact that we got to hear it from him directly was really something special. Dave told us that our present situation is like the Tale of Two Cities...the best and worst of times and that how we look at it is up to us. I found that to be very empowering and uplifting. This book also convicted me as a Christian and helped me see the extent of my attitude sin. I would strongly urge any large organization to book Dave Carey as a speaker and to read his book. Thanks Dave!
