Simply Amazing Special Authors Edition, first in author K. C. Armstrong's Simply Amazing series, is a collection of uplifting stories of overcoming life's greatest challenges.

K. C. Armstrong begins the book with the heart-wrenching story of his own tormented years after leaving the Howard Stern Show and his transformation to a life of hope and service to others. With this explanation of his own personal redemption, he then shares twelve favorite interviews from his WMAP radio station of people who have also overcome tremendous challenges to find their true life callings. (

Armstrong's first interview is with a 92 year old Holocaust survivor who recounts his days in Auschwitz with details of daily struggles to stay alive, including running as a test of strength for Dr. Mengele and watching the smoke arise from the deadly chimneys. We hear from the mother of a special-needs child who must navigate a complicated system to help her son. A young man from the ghetto watches a man shot in the street and die on a neighbor's porch. A stage four breast cancer survivor who had been given a death sentence by her doctors travels to another country for alternative treatment. All of the people interviewed in this book tell amazing stories of courage, dignity and perseverance, and all inspire us with the resiliency and forgiveness of the human spirit.

Life, for all of us, brings hardships. What separates us is how we use them to collapse- or to grow.

The final message is upbeat and inspiring. We cheer for each of these everyday heroes and turn the last page with a renewed outlook of gratitude, love and self-assurance.
