"The stories are inspiring. The writing is clear. It is so enjoyable, you don't want to stop reading. Many of the stories evoke significant emotion considering the obstacles each of the individuals have to overcome. The stories are about real people that most likely we see in our daily life but do not realize the tribulations and triumphs.
"The American Dream by Gary Sirak is a very positive and easy to read book that should be read by everyone who has yet to reach the American Dream. It describes the route several people took to reach financial security, telling of the hard work, long hours and help from mentors. In a time where people want "quick fixes" this book is encouraging.
"As I sipped my coffee and read, I was inspired by the personal and heart-warming stories told by author, Gary Sirak, about some of his own heroes in his new book, The American Dream Revisited. Written with a cup of coffee in hand, he brings to life a collection of stories about people he has admired over the years – people with simple lives who have achieved great success in one way or another. Yet, the underlying thread that runs through these stories of perseverance, struggle, hard work, ingenuity and curiosity is one of generosity and doing for others. Could it be that the American Dream is a reward we can all achieve simply by the act of giving? A wonderful, quick read, this book will definitely make you believe that the American Dream is alive and thoroughly attainable.
"I recently had the opportunity to read this wonderful book written by Gary Sirak and published by Morgan James. The book explores whether or not the American Dream is still alive and well in contemporary America. Needless to say, the book was more than a worthwhile read. In fact, it stimulated me to want to start my American Dream all over again, even at my age!
The book explores the American Dream through 13 different perspectives and focuses on how those 13 individuals set goals and lived their lives to achieve the American Dream. It is a compelling and moving read and one that I recommend most highly to everyone, especially those who may believe that the American Dream has faded or is even dead. It is not the case as this book demonstrates! Gary Sirak is to be commended for presenting such a challenging topic in an absolutely easy to read and fun format. The book should inspire every reader to achieve the American Dream themselves.

"I enjoyed reading this book. As a fourth-generation child of Irish Catholic immigrants, I have been raised on the stories of failure and discrimination our family endured to overcome and achieve the American Dream. With the current political atmosphere, I seriously questioned whether that American Dream was still a possibility for my children and grandchildren. Then I read this book. As a voracious reader, I have read many inspirational books in my life. Halfway through this book, I was in tears. If you find yourself in negativity, still believe in the goodness of people, or just want to give back for a good cause then buy and read this book. I believe everyone can devive some sense of inspiration or just a little joy from this book. Gary Sirak has been our financial advisor for years. He is also a kind and caring friend who always reaches out to others in need. Gary believes in that tenant to his core and puts his talent and money where his mouth is.
"I read this 3 times in a row! It forces you to take an internal look at yourself! I loved witnessing the transformation within me each time I read it. I realized so many different aspects of my life and my experiences which shaped my relationship with money. Before reading this book, like many I'm sure, I didn't even know that our life experiences could have such a positive or negative effect on our relationship with money. This is a must read for those of us who desire a happy and healthy relationship with money. Learn why it is you spend, save, or gift money the way you do, understand how your view of self is often expressed by the way you handle money, and most importantly... learn how to begin building a positive future with your money before it's too late!
"Gary Sirak's book provides a fresh and practical step by step guide to financial well being for everyone. The stories of what can go bad and what can be done to improve the handling of money are invaluable. I bought one for each of my adult children and read it myself. Good job Gary! A good read for everyone!
