The inspiring, true story of a man who went from nothing to speaking to more than two million people each year. Reggie Dabbs's life changed when in the second grade he realized his parents were not his real parents, and that his birth was the result of a 20-dollar deal his 16-year-old unwed mother made to secure the food she needed for her three other children.
Interwoven with humorous and thought-provoking anecdotes, as well as stories from the Bible and his travels around the world, this is the true, chronological story of Reggie and his message for students and adults alike that they are powerless to change their past, but they possess a unique potential to change their future.

Would you listen to Reggie again? Why?
Yes. This listen is done in one evening. However , the mixture between a memoir(without a boring minute.) and Reggies honest wish for you and I to be what we can be - someone unlike any other. Yes. Reggie is a Christian and the book does refer to the bible. My non Christian friend said" This book is not like other Christian books. It even lifted me!"
