As a fifteen-year-old boy in Germany, Rolf Harms decided to leave school and travel the world by sea to satisfy his burning desire to visit foreign lands and support his single mother financially. He went on to fulfill his dream of traveling to many different countries, including Thailand, Vietnam, and Taiwan. As a ship boy on a brand new cargo ship, Rolf visited New York for the first time and eventually became an illegal alien in the US. After some years in the country, he lived the American dream and worked in the credit/debit card industry, which enabled him to travel to other locations worldwide. Rolf takes readers on an adventure-filled, philosophical, and gratifying journey and shares his remarkable experience of life in Who Am I? My Story and Philosophies: The Autobiography of a Somebody or Nobody or Anybody?
It's such a privilege to read the unique, informative experiences of Rolf Harms, a purposeful man constantly driven to live his dreams and learn from his mistakes. Thanks to the book's vivid descriptions, I had a dreamy, memorable experience picturing "the reflection of the moon and stars" in the waves and the school of dolphins that accentuated a certain "phosphorescent-like illumination". I also enjoyed learning some new things about various subjects, like how short sales and REO lender-owned foreclosure sales drastically reduced real estate prices in the USA. Rolf guides the audience throughout his story by including helpful notes about the reason for choosing to tell a particular story or share a specific idea in the book. Life can indeed be exciting, adventurous, and extraordinary, and Who Am I? My Story and Philosophies is a perfect example. I loved every bit of it!
