It highlights a path that many men I know are following where we repeat the mistakes of our fathers. It helped me to see that one can overcome our shortcomings through hard work and most importantly honesty. It’s filled with helpful tidbits to help one see life through a new lens. (Omar Broadbelt)

I appreciate this book. Very relatable, transparent motivational and challenging all at the same time. It gives you a vivid imagery of inner-city life, it’s struggles and how having the right influences in your life can lead to success and triumph regardless of the obstacles on your path. The chapter on forgiveness did it for me considering how the author could have lost his life. The ability to forgive someone who almost took your life requires a quality that can only come from a divine source. The book has a lot more than the points I’ve highlighted. Awesome read especially for men.!! (The Preacher Man)
