Driven on unrelentingly, not to be beaten down by personal failure and not to let the shadows of an abusive upbringing hold him back from meeting life’s challenges head on. This is one man’s extraordinary true-life story, which highlights the ever-present need to find your way in the world. A new book in 2020.
Across many diverse life adventures over a seventy-year period, a picture is painted, of a life that has led from being abandoned by his mother and knowing the violence of a sadistic step mother to sexual abuse while in the care system, then to walking the streets as a homeless person and from brushes with the law as a young adult to finding personal values and self improvement.
In this new book for 2020 the author has written with optimism about finding adventure and fulfillment in life while at the same time trying to learn from his mistakes.
While the reader will find many events written about with a wry sense of humour and sometimes a disrespectful view of authority, they will always be inspired by the authors optimism and willingness to accept a challenge.
