“I Wouldn’t Die: A Memoir” is the dramatically titled autobiography of a man who survived incredible hardships and personal risks in the course of his life time. A miraculous story of survival, tracing his life from Rome, Italy to New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Georgia.  

I WOULDN’T DIE tells of the journey from childhood to fatherhood, of living through wars and watching history unfold, and striving to do one’s best in a demanding world. An inspirational life story written in down-to-earth prose that inexorably draws the reader in.” 
-The Midwestern Book Review
