    Story
    (44)

    Ping Fu knows what it’s like to be a child soldier, a factory worker, and a political prisoner. To be beaten and raped for the crime of being born into a well-educated family. To be deported with barely enough money for a plane ticket to a bewildering new land. To start all over, without family or friends, as a maid, waitress, and student. Ping Fu also knows what it’s like to be a pioneering software programmer, an innovator, a CEO, and Inc. magazine’s Entrepreneur of the Year.

    Roy B. Paschal says: "A true account as good as any Horatio Alger story!"
    "Amazing Story of Resilience"

    Story
    What did you love best about Bend, Not Break?

    The incredible journey of Ping's life absolutely captured my attention. It also gave me a glimpse into Chinese history that I was not familiar with. I absolutely loved hearing about her incredible resilience, strength and perseverance in all aspects of her life.

    It is incredible to hear how much she accomplished given how little she had as a child and through her teenage years.

    I love that she made a life for herself in spite of the atrocities and circumstances in her life. She did not break.

    She is an inspiration to me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The honesty, vulnerability and humility.


    What does Robin Miles bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Beautifully narrated, her reading was personal and inviting.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, and yes, as any well lived life does.
