This is an autobiography that defines patience as the ability to make the most out of oneâ€™s adversity. The writer suffered an accident that paralyzed his body, but also allowed him to unleash his writing talents. He shares the details of his experiences and by doing so is an example of overcoming hardship and transforming bitterness into success.
The following is translated from a review of A Taste of Patience: The writer is a survivor of an accident that altered his life. He is a man who managed to overcome adversity and transform bitterness into personal success, as his literary gains outweighed his physical restrictions. Where his physical condition limited his movements, his creative writing opened up a new horizon that enabled him to freely interact with his readers. This is a real-life account of how a human being can overcome obstacles, giving effect to the epithet: What does not kill me makes me stronger. The autobiography defines patience in two ways: first, as a bitter experience and then second, as the ability to tolerate and turn oneâ€™s misfortune into investment. The accident that the writer suffered has paralysed his body, but at the same time it has unleashed his writing talents.
