Review | Harry's Last Stand by Harry Leslie Smith

First of all, if you haven't read this you need to. It's a fairly quick read, at only 200 pages I was finished within a few days that were pretty much jam packed of uni deadlines. This was a seriously inspiring book.
To read about the struggles he endured during his childhood, and how he always wanted to help his family really made me appreciate everything I have and how lucky I was to be able to go to school and not have to worry about needing to work or if there was going to be any food when I got home.

Harry's Last Stand is mainly about getting people to realise that we need to work of saving the society and the systems that his generation put in place, but have only been crumbling away. Harry's perspective was so interesting to read about, being a survivor of the Great Depression and the Second World War amongst other things meant that he had hoards of experience to write about and how this has created the views that he has. 

It makes you think differently about a world and society we think we know well and gives a different perspective to look at. It's the kind of perspective that can change your views on things in a good way, one that speaks from knowledge and experience of others. 

I highly recommend this book to everyone, even if you think politics isn't your kind of thing, you'll be able to find an interest in this. 

Take a stand at Harry's Last Stand

Happy Reading
