wow!! this book taught me so much about life and the human nature. sometimes i put down the book because the intensity of David's determination and passion for life just blows me away and quickens my pulse.I have to say David is one of my beloved heroes.His struggles are a great lesson and helped many others.
Oh my this book has brought courage in my life. I have been through almost the same thing, except it wasnt my mother that did it to me. It was my stepfather. From ages 6 to 13 I was sexually abused by my stepfather. Then I was raped by a 23 year old at age 14. I am 15 now. I read all his books and it gave me the courage to tell the police what he did to me. My biological mother neglected me and so did my biological father. David Peltzer you are my all time hero.
his book is the most inspiring book i have read all year, i like this book because it's so powerful and brings you into the book. When i thought it couldn't get any better it did. I can't beleive you lived through your life with such a miserable child hood. Your mothers and alcolholic, your fathers a retired fireman, who works on the streets as a bum, and later sooner dies. Just want to let you know that this book made me more interested in reading books and i just started to read "Lose Yourself" which so far is life changing
