I want to write something to emphasize how powerful this story is, but can only come up with... unbelievable! The determination to live and the power of forgiveness = powerful.
No. Once is enough.
Not from a religious perspective. Dugard and O'reilly do a good job of staying secular which leads to the credibility of the book.
I hope killing MLK is next. Bill has a niche.
Too many stories about leagues, I don't need to know all the many ways a team creates trophies or punish the loser, however the personal story of the author was great. I really enjoyed his life.
yes, if you are a CC fan, this is a must read.
yes, love his wit and his funny style. He makes sports fun...oh and he knows his Sh%$
glad her read the book....
the stories about his early life were too much...other than that great fun read.
Makes a non left or right topic to political. Too much bashing of the right (which is deserving at times) and many excuses for the left. These facts made me wonder if there is a conspiracy by the author to put too much blame on the right... Without this obvious bias, great book that WILL make you think...
Great book. Reminds me of a song titled “things that make you go umm.” My only criticism: the author places too much emphasis on opportunity and not enough on the subjects taking advantage of this opportunity through hard work. The author makes a blanket conclusion that Bill Gates was the only teen to have the opportunity to program computers all the time and thus had an opportunity like no other. Well how does the author know this? Could there have been other teens with a similar opportunity but were lazy and unwilling to work as hard as Mr. Gates? To me the secret is opportunity (which sometimes you can’t control) + hard work (which you can control). Fun book. I can’t wait to read the others written by this author.
