When modern medicine declared the author's autoimmune disease hopeless, the Great Physician proved otherwise.

More then a book about miraculous healing, it reads like a novel as the author traces his life's journey from the hard streets of New York City, the hilarious times of raising ten children, his school days at the old age of 45 with a two year term in Bible college; the loss of his health, livelihood and his 24 year old son in a car accident. All while doing battle with his incurable autoimmune disease Polymyositis, and taking on the American Health Care system. His perseverance and toughness helped him win battles most man would have yielded to. The book brings hope and encouragement to anyone fighting a hopeless illness, or a seemingly losing battle, though the author's infectious mind-set against bowing to, what he calls the Pawnbrokers of this world. A healing experience for the price of a movie.  


We must first be faithful in the little things, before God shows us greater challenges of major league proportion. Those sandlot ball games, filled with laughter and pain prepared me for the game of life, life - with it's mixture of happiness and sorrow, joy and pain, bumps and bruises. This is one man's story of that game played by God's rules, on an uneven field...broken glass and all.

Professional Reviews
Valley News Newspapers
This book will have you crying and laughing almost simltaneously. It is an interesting autobiography of a man who leaves his native New York City before traveling too far down the wrong path. He makes his mark in a small community, possessing a strong will to succeed as a husband, parent and businessman, while overcoming many setbacks. After winning many tough battles, he was further victorious over an incurable muscle disease.Though it affected his physical abilities, this book is proof that it hasn't diminished his wit, writing skills or his strong faith in God.(Vincent Caravan, Publisher.)

Author and Publisher
Welcome Al Squitieri to the peaks of the word crafting art. This is no novice, but a seasoned newspaper columnist, launching an exciting new career as a book author. His work can be described as a book equipped with a spiritual thermostat. From the harsh cold New York streets of the author's youth, through the uncommon warmth of Al the man, into the scalding heat of his battle with America's Health Care System. This book reads like a novel, and can only leave the reader asking when he will see more work by the author.(Dr.Marvin Sprouse)

Pastor Reformed Presbyterian Church
Al Squitieri demonstrates his recovery from Polymyositis disease through the use of natural supplements, herbs and Homeopathy, while expressing his experience with trails and hardships by using a good sense of humor. Al has done a masterful job of holding your attention through the use of baseball analogies. With introspection he gives reason for suffering from a Biblical standpoint, his vivid testimony serves as a reminder not to give up under trails of the Christian experience, but to press on with genuine perserverance. Nick Iamaio, Pastor

Reader Reviews for "broken glass and all"

Reviewed by H. Lena Jones 4/21/2006
Your book sounds like a good read. I happen to know first hand that Jesus still heals today, for I am living proof of His healing touch. May God continue to bless you, Al, as you bless others.

Reviewed by Sherry Gibson 11/15/2002
Any book about autoimmune disorders catch my immediate attention. Your story sounds like one of overcoming and learning to live with and around Polymyositis. I have Lupus and do understand some of the challanges of learning to Live With Lupus.

Al's book has been a blessing to me!
We don't need another self-help book without God. We don't need anything minus God! I was so moved by many of the things shared in the first few chapters...especially the story about seeing your uncle in the nursing home and when the tear dropped from his eye as he was close to his death...I, too, believe he could hear you and responded with that tear. Your book is such a testimony to God and His Power. I will be praying as you make your decision to republish your book. I think it is excellent as is. Shelley Johnson, Missouri
