David is now an AMAZON INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR in 3 categories:

“This is cool. Imagine going on holidays and then being contacted by your publisher that your book has just achieved BESTSELLER status in three major categories on Amazon. Wow, I thought to myself, can this get any better? As it turns out, it did. I received some of the feedback from readers of the book. Comments like ‘Inspiring and very useful!’ are so encouraging. I am grateful and appreciative. Thank you.” – David Bunney
