As a woman, I wasn't sure this book would really be relevant to me, but I decided to give it a chance. It's always nice to have another perspective. I devoured this book the day it arrived. In the span of the two hours it took me to finish this book, I laughed, and cried, and laughed, and cried some more! It's very emotional so I do recommend a box of tissues.

A walk in Man Shoes begins with a single step. It is incredible that both as a child and an adult Tom had so much adversity and was yet able to turn himself around, face his fears, and become such a compassionate and motivated human being. There are several 'take away' lessons in the book for all of us.

Format: Hardcover
Tom Watson's book, Man Shoes-The Journey To Becoming A Better Man, Husband & Father, is an inspirational story about the legacy we leave through our interactions with others. Tom had a challenging beginning from his birth to parents ill prepared to raise a child through his tween years. As a neglected an abused child, he developed patterns of chaos and self-defeating behaviors. He began to see his worth as a person of possibilities ONLY when his final foster parents and some very special individuals invested time, wisdom and unconditional love, by helping him grow into his "Man Shoes". He makes the analogy of his shoe shopping experiences with his foster mother (purchasing the next larger size). He connects it to his physical, spiritual and emotional growth into his Man Shoes as a way of understanding that we must always leave room to grow in our life circumstances. While purchasing shoes that fit, at that moment in time, it would not leave any room to grow. However,by purchasing the next larger size he could grow into them. His reasoning is that while it might be comfortable...it may not be all that he truly needed. In life, being slightly uncomfortable in some situations can leave room to grow into the person that you are destined to become with the right encouragement, emotional support and teaching. I would recommend this book highly to anyone who has challenges to overcome, lives to impact and influence and to anyone wishing to live a more fulfilling life.

This book made me laugh, cry and learn... I feel like I am forever changed by Man Shoes. Tom Watson "gets it" and uses is story to show other how to do the same. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to be better. I will take what I have learned from Man Shoes and implement the lessons in my everyday relationships. Great read!

This book made me laugh and cry. As I read this store I though of my time as a son, brother, husband and a father and realized the story that I was living made an impact. Some roads are smooth and some are rough. I would say that Tom's road was challenging and I am glad that I read this book. Read it!!

Great story - once I picked it up I couldn't put it down! Tom has been through a lot in his life and is an example of the fact that it is not what happens to you in life but how you choose to deal with it. Each chapter has great suggestions for the reader to use in his / her life. Enjoy the read - I did.

Format: Hardcover
As a fellow "survivor" of growing up through challenges, Tom's real story resonated with truth and emotion about life, love, fear, honesty, laughter, tears, challenges and successes. For every parent, spouse or child, this story hits home and reminds us all of the different challenges we may face in life, how we can choose to become who we really want to be and make a real difference to our Families and those we love. I read so many things that reminded me of similar "wow" moments with my own life, my kids, and my Family. It brought me back to feelings of strength, courage and caring.....all qualities I hope have been passed on to my kids through there own challenges in life.

Through Tom's unique storytelling, "keeping it real" the whole way along, you'll laugh, cry and learn to appreciate life even more than today, but most of all, you'll want to share what you read.

Man or Woman, Parent or Child, read this book. It will remind you that love CAN conquer all.
