Josh Hamilton--Beyond Belief Book Review

This is one book that has some many twists and turns, the reader isn't sure what is going to happen next. Josh Hamilton, a baseball prodigy that everybody thinks has a miracle life before him, based on a childhood passion.

That passion filters through the darkest of drug dens and nightmares. A miracle life demonstrates itself in unusual ways that would have killed most people if they had the same experiences. Everybody raving and giving high-fives because you're a $4 million dollar player can take its toll on a 19-year old. Instead of running the bases, Josh took a slide into the dark world of drugs and self-humiliation. But someone through the power of love showed him how to hit a home run that changed his life forever.

Tim Keown and Josh Hamilton tell a story that is Beyond Belief but also beyond baseball. It is beyond what man might expect and certainly more than a human can do for self. Whether you're a sports fan or not, if you like rooting for somebody to make it against all odds, this is a must read.

If you now somebody who wants to make a comeback from wrong choices of any kind, let them have the opportunity read this encouraging book. It's more than just a feel good story, it tells the truth of struggle, slipping and sliding, and the will to overcome.
