Most amazing autobiography I've ever read! Good mix of baseball and life. It's honest and real, and gave me a great respect for R.A. He's had a ton of highs and lows in his career as well as personal. A very well written story that is sure to captivate any reader! Must read!!

By Mark Nenadov TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Dec 26 2013
Format: Hardcover
I've read a lot of sports memoirs back in the day, but it's been quite a while! This is a really good one. Dickey is one of those rare baseball pitchers who makes a living on the knuckleball. He's articulate and deals with his history with honesty, and often, frankness. Eric Metaxas said this was a "extraordinarily moving and honest and inspiring memoir".

I am instinctively skeptical of stories that speak of "authenticity" and are about celebrities who experienced a "redemption" of sorts. However, I came away from this, both enjoying the story and having an endearing feeling towards the author. He seems to be a pretty humble guy who wants to learn both from his failures and other people who have more experience.

In his own way, Dickey was a man whose marriage and career went through a fire, and appear to have become stronger for it. He is straightforward about his Christian faith and it generally seems to inform his perspective, though I would not say that is at all the central theme of the book. I can imagine that any baseball fan, even a borderline one, could very well enjoy this book!

I thouroughly enjoyed this book. I am an avid Blue Jays Fan and was interested in reading it now that he plays for the Blue Jays. He is both Intelligent and well spoken and honest to a fault. He pitched his best game yestereday for the Jays against Tampa Bay. After reading the book I felt proud as if I knew him. I hope to see him pitch in Toronto if I can mnage to get there. I have to have spinal surgery with-in the next 2 months, so don't know if it would be possible, but I pray it will haappen.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Dickey shows us a side of him that is rarely seen in a professional athlete. How he illustrates his struggles through his career, his personal life, and his many doubters along the way kept me engaged throughout the whole book. He has quickly transformed from a player who I found interesting to the most respected player I have had the pleasure of watching step on the field.

One of the most revealing stories about overcoming adversity through faith. R. A's honesty and integrity shines through both on and off the field. Great book and a great read.
