The guy didn't even know how to read two years ago.

I read that, and I still can't find out who published the book. It's not on Am@zon. Since the article said he was holding a signing, I wonder if he went LuLu or something similar.

:Thumbs:Looks like he's got a web-page for the book:

I'm darned impressed, whether it's something he could have gotten a publisher to pick up or not. Kudos to him. :) That took effort & dedication.

Oh, looks like he also has a blog, but it's been metaphorically slashdotted:

Edited: Just wanted to add: :Clap::Trophy:

That is so awesome and inspiring, no matter what mode of publication he used. I mean, learning to read in his 90's, then writing a book two years after he learns to read? This is the kind of story I love.
