A hard-luck story with a lesson to learn, this guide offers readers solid advice on making choices and making changes in their lives. Fifteen years ago, the author was a drop out, drug addict, and deadbeat dad who had turned to bank robbery and landed in prison; now, he shares what has made it possible for him to become a college graduate, responsible father, and acclaimed public speaker. From his example, readers will learn how to change their lives and commit to being better people by accepting responsibility for—and making the most of—every choice they face. The inspiring story and reliable advice combine to offer a uniquely insightful plan of attack for those who want to take control of their situations and set themselves on the path to success.
