Based on his powerful, true journey from a childhood rife with poverty, incarceration, addiction, and rage, to the successful adult life he achieved, Daniel Beaty presents the tools you need to overcome adversity and achieve greatness. By outlining an alternative mode of thinking, especially for the modern African American man bombarded by negative stereotypes in the media, Beaty empowers the individual and encourages readers of all backgrounds to learn from their cultural and family heritage while forgiving and letting go of the negative, so that only the positive remains.
Beaty’s story, supported by deeply personal advice from notable mentors such as Leontyne Price, Sidney Poitier, Ossie Davis, and Ruby Dee, serves as a strong reminder that success is ultimately possible not in spite of struggles but as a result of lessons learned and power drawn from those lessons.
