Yes, I have read the book and no, I would not recommend it to anyone. It is a heavy emotional read. It is the autobiography of a man who was severely abused as a child (starved and brutally beaten). It is the worst case of child abuse documented in the state of California. What kept him alive was his hopes and dreams. If you cannot handle deep issues then, this is not the book for you.
David Peltzer, survivor of the worst child abuse. Too hard for me. He wrote several books.
Yes, and the next one after, though I can't think of the name of the second. I do recommend it very much. Of course it's sad, horribly so, Dave/David?, the one who the book is about, was courageous to write his experiences and we can all benefit from his story as it's humans, at their worst, at their best.
I agree with you. What courage he has, just to even write about his history..
Its a good book, quite heavy that I had to put down once for a few days. Yes I cried all the way through it and I didn't read his others. I couldn't understand and still haven't why he was abused and not his siblings? But yes id recommend it, it will make you sad though
Yes, I've read it. It's a good book, but I don't know if I would recommend it to anyone since it's a heavy read. (And, by "good" I mean well-written.)
yes i have read all his books (they are his true life story) but "he didnt "become an abuser"( like what t was done to him;) (so he broke the cycle) its very "graphic"; and disturbing"; :O
it's a sad story, the sequel is "a man name dave."
No you should'nt read it bet you can't relate only people who had hard lives can.ha! Bet you can count only on one hand how many times you've been spanked or yelled at. But there is a book called "Spoiled Princess Daughter" good book.
No but I have seen it at others homes and it always seem to stem from a shrink recommending it.
