Great Read, goes beyond baseball.
If you want to read about Mike Lowell, defining moments in his life, what shaped him, his fight against cancer and beating the odds to become a World Series MVP then this book is for you. Living in Boston and following the Red Sox I knew I would learn new things about Lowell reading this book but didn't think I would learn as much or feel like I would know him so much better, as I do now. This is one of those books where you really don't have to be a fan of baseball to enjoy it, it is universally good story. I would recommend to this book for anyone to read.

There are few baseball players, or sports stars in general, who deserve our time as readers. Yes, occasional stories about the games themselves, told through the eyes of those men and women who played them, help keep memories of being a fan alive for decades. They become collectors' items and mementos of good times in our lives.
But many have proven to be self-congratulatory for illegitimate purposes, leaving the reader with hollow feelings and changed perspectives on who they thought of as heroes. This book is the antithesis of the typical sports star memoir.
Not much more needs to be said than Mike Lowell went from cancer to World Series Most Valuable Player. His story is one of inspiration, and a refreshing look at a very public and scrutinized persona. Red Sox fans get daily updates on Mike Lowell's life for about 200 days per year. My appreciation of him grew after reading this book, something I did not think possible after meeting him with a group of other baseball fans in 2006.
Let's hope that in the future we see more Mike Lowells than not in the sports world. It's a lot to expect with all the temptations laid out before our generations of young athletic American millionaires not yet possessed of the wisdom of age, but Mike shows that it can happen.
As a side note, the work of Rob Bradford is not to be downplayed. Although it's often difficult to discern where the autobiographer's work ends and the coauthor's work begins, there's no doubt he helped shape this book in important ways.

Much more than just another baseball book
I bought this expecting it to be worth reading, and was not disappointed in the least. I admire the way Mike Lowell approaches life and baseball, and, now I feel I know the "person behind the jersey" a little better. I enjoyed it, and will definitely reread it.

MIKE LOWELL COURAGEOUS MAN
In this book I found a man with character, integrity, honesty, modesty and strong faith and family values. A truly MVP in baseball and in the game of life.
An inspirational book, a must read for the younger generation.
