I do recommend this book to all my friends because it is an honest and deeply inspirational portrayal of real life events. As the author I am naturally biased but frankly speaking, my intention is to inspire others with a simple fact...IF I CAN OVERCOME ALL OF THESE CHALLENGES - SO CAN YOU.
It's my life, at least the first thirty years, and despite my adversities I have lived a blessed life and want to do what I can to make the world a better place.
My personal favorite was Chapter 9, "Goodbye Mom". It was my most descriptive and heart wrenching because I've relived it a thousand times. Narrator John Esposito really brought that chapter, indeed the entire book, to life. However, any person who has ever experienced the sudden and tragic loss of a loved one can really feel the anguish, pain, regret, and depression brought out in this scene.
Elements of modern society's controversial figures are all here...Kevorkian, Sandusky, Reagan, and even God Himself are all swirled together in one man's life experiences.
If for no other reason, read this book to re-affirm in your own heart and soul that the human spirit, with the help of God and a few good people, can overcome any adversity.
