Reggie wants you to know your story. Where did you come from? Where are you going? How are you going to get there? He begins with a bit of a life lesson from his childhood that shows how he handled life, or accepted how it was going. He tells us he is there to help the youth of today grow into adults. One of his themes is "you cannot change what has already happened", meaning you can not change the past, but you can change the future.
I had a hard time reading this book. I have never heard Reggie in person, but the reading was choppy. There was something he said that I was not pleased with. He was saying he tells the boys they need to respect girls. I like this and young boys do need to know this and practice it, but Reggie said that if a boy wanted to give a girl flowers, but didn't have any money, they needed to just go by the cemetery and get some, because there isn't anyone there who will miss them. Personally, having young boys be respectful of girls should not include stealing.
I am glad Reggie was able to go into a direction that was positive and not take his circumstances and create a harmful life for himself, but it was not necessarily a book I enjoyed reading.
I received a complimentary copy of the book, from Booksneeze.com, in exchange for my review.
