Amazon reviews:
"Extraordinary. I am rarely moved to tears when reading a book, yet Pin Kathy's recounting of his horrendous experiences is an exception. The agony of his having to abandon his son and losing his wife in the forest while trying to escape from Cambodia are the worst of numerous agonizing events. The book is a very personal account of one man and the destruction of his family, however Pin Yathay achieves his primary goal of allowing the reader to understand what life, or more often death, was like for all under Pol Pot's rule. Few who read this book will ever forget it."

"This is a hard to find book. It is one of the best books I've read about what happened during the takeover of Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge in 1975, led by Pol Pot. The worst part of this story is that so many people didn't believe this could happen to them. They were clueless that the communist party they were embracing would turn out to be their killers."

"A must read for anyone with a passion for human rights. The author lost every one of his rather large immediate family; the country lost a third of its population in 27 months. What strength it must have taken to relive the horror by writing such graphic description."

"Wow... That was unbelievable. I've read many books about genocide and atrocities, but few have hit me as deeply as "Stay Alive, My Son" did. Just... Wow. "
