Coming Out of the Ice: An Unexpected Life - Victor Herman This book really shows that for all the problems you might have in life, you really have it well off. This is a must read.

EDIT: Interestingly enough, my Dad actually used to work with one of Victor Herman's daughters, Svetlana, and through her he met Victor Herman's widow, Galina, who signed the book for him. I also apparently met Svetlana, though I was just a young child at the time so I sadly don't remember meeting her.
