    Josh Hamilton was the first player chosen in the first round of the 1999 baseball draft. He was destined to be one of those rare "high-character" superstars. But in 2001, working his way from the minors to the majors, all of the plans for Josh went off the rails in a moment of weakness. What followed was a four-year nightmare of drugs and alcohol, estrangement from friends and family, and his eventual suspension from baseball.

    Linda Harrell says: "A Texas who "still" loves Josh Hamilton"
    "Interesting story, though a little repetitive."

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes. I love baseball and was interested in Josh's story based on the news about him that I've seen. I am also obsessed with stories of redemption and recovery, so this was a good fit for me.


    Any additional comments?

    I did enjoy this book. The narrator is especially good - I started to believe I was actually hearing Josh Hamilton's voice. The story is remarkable. The writing is a little repetitive which can get tiresome, but it is very much worth a listen. I read R.A. Dickey's book at the same time as I listened to this, and it was great to have two such different stories to experience at the same time.
