What Readers Are Saying About The Great Wing

"This is one of the most touching and yet powerful parables I have ever read. "
- Og Mandino

"Take a flight into spiritual transformation as you experience how possibility thinking works its wonders on this flock."
- Dr. Robert H.Schuller

"A magnificent transformational journey- step aboard for a life changing flight - I loved it."

- Fr. Joe Martin

If you have ever struggled to survive, had to face the winds of  adversity or moved on in life afraid that you might not make it, read this book. It will inspire and motivate you. It will fill you with faith in God.
- David Toma, World renowned lecturer and author.

The Great Wing is one of the 90's great parables. It stands on its' own as a charming story of a goose, Gomer, who is struggling to learn how and why the flock must leave their pond. On a deeper level, Gomer is experiencing many of the same inner struggles that we go through every day. How do I balance my need for individuality and self expression with my undeniable need to be part of something larger? What we learn is we can have it all. You can surrender yourself to the "flock" and not loose sight of who you are . In fact, It is within this "flock" that you discover your true self and all you have to offer to the world.

Author, Dr. Louis Tartaglia's telling of the story of Gomer is second only to meeting him in person. His outgoing personality seems in contrast to the calming effect he has over individuals he meets. He seems like a person who has the peace we all seem to search for, much like Gomer does in the Great Wing.   -
Chris Champion, Manager Thackeray's Books.

The Great Wing is a priceless jewel that everyone in a recovery program should read.- Spencer Haywood, former NBA All-Star

I love the book very much and on top of it, it's opening again and again my inner eye. Thanks a lot for all the insights. Joana Duena.,

You may also enjoy an expanded, very stimulating story in book form that describes this sense of teamwork, told first person from the perspective of a gosling as he prepares for his first migration to the south for the winter. The name of the book is "The Great Wing."  - Beverly W., Fort Wayne, IN

This book is my new favorite gift to others. My wife, my sister, and my father have all responded with repeated comments about the impact of personal introspection this writing has inspired. Another recipient just last weekend informed me that in two days this book had inspired her to reorganize her department and look deep into her soul. The book very subtly and entertainingly helps one see the impact of interpersonal relationships and the significance of helping one another by helping one's self operate at full potential. Please give this book to anyone who needs a boost of self confidence... It will brighten several of your days as you watch this message brighten their lives. Randy Morrison, Fort Wayne, IN

The complex "V" pattern of flying and the significance behind it, vividly unfolds, woven with practical sadhana as experienced by Gomer, Monica, August, Goosentein, Walter, EBT birds. The challenging storm at the end and the perseverance of the "Flock Minded" birds receive the blessings of "The Great Wing" landing them in the warm Bay. ... It is a great gift to
give to anyone.  -Sabapathy Siva,MD Vancouver Canada

"On first reading, THE GREAT WING is a page-turner of a story about the art of flock flight, as practiced by the wild goose. As a parable on relationships, it explores our life within ourselves, with each other and the cosmos.

I loved "The Great Wing." It addresses the fears, insecurities and wishes that all of us have at some point in our lives. You deal with profound themes but employ a metaphor of migrating geese, effectively making the book suitable for all ages.

The book, The Great Wing, was recommended to our Amway network marketing group as part of our ongoing training program. I did not read it right away, but members of our group did and were highly recommending it to me. I picked it up over a weekend and could not put it down. I saw the overall concept, but went back over the book three more times and I still refer back to it. There is so much wisdom in what I first perceived to be a rather simplistic story -- that is until I read it and began to process through the teachings that Dr. Tartaglia has so brilliantly incorporated. I would suggest that anyone regardless of the type of work you are involved with to read this book, it has some very important life lessons that we all need to learn.  - Jo Ann T. Kock, Sarasota, Florida
