He had to overcome a lot

I like that the general theme of this autobiography is that no matter how horrible your life is, you can overcome it. I like that he celebrates his ability to deal and survive what he had to. The book highlights horrible child abuse and the hope would be that someone reading the book may have a better understanding/reognition to child abuse. The writing style of Pelzer leaves something to be desired. He repeats himself quite a bit and leaves the reader with a lot of questions.

Dave is a couragous young man who takes a disaster

I would recommend this book to those looking for a quick read biography. Some of the stories he tells will keep you engaged.

User Review

Good Points
Dave is a very couragous man who has taken a terrible tradegy and made it into a victory for himself. How any person could live a life as he did and find a way to help others is just amazing. It is a very easy read for those looking for a biography
Bad Points
The only problem I had was Dave repeats himself numerous times throughout the book retelling some of the same stories. He also does not have a great vocabulary base so words are repeated often.
