Ten Points | [Bill Strickland]

Ten Points

Bill Strickland believed he was cursed. No matter how secure his life outwardly seemed, the happiness he had attained with his wife and daughter hung by a thread, threatened by the monster Bill lived in constant fear of, a demon inside him that had been created by horrific childhood abuse.

Publisher's Summary

Bill Strickland believed he was cursed. No matter how secure his life outwardly seemed, the happiness he had attained with his wife and daughter hung by a thread, threatened by the monster Bill lived in constant fear of, a demon inside him that had been created by horrific childhood abuse.

A lifelong but decidedly average bicyclist, Bill was challenged by his daughter to score 10 points in a series of weekly races dominated by pro racers, national champions, and legends of the sport. He hoped that if he could achieve this impossible feat, he might similarly triumph over the indestructible demon that haunted his life. Weaving together the story of the races and Bill's struggle to overcome a legacy of abuse, Ten Points is an insider's look at the world of cycling and the healing power of sports.

    "Very Moving"
    Would you listen to Ten Points again? Why?

    I felt a bit sideswiped by this story, in that I wasn't quite prepared for the hateful and yet detached abuse this man endured as a child. It's pretty hard to listen to, and I found myself dreading those parts of the story. On the other hand, it's pretty fabulous to listen to his decisions to become a better man, be a better father, and not become like his abuser.
