Editorial Reviews


“Two Foot Fred is great. As soon as you meet him, you think you've known him forever; there is a BIG heart down in that little guy.” (Toby Keith, Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year and Launch Video of the Year; American Music Awards Favorite Male Artist–Country Music and Favorite Alb)

“My daughter once walked up to Fred and asked him why he was so little. Fred said that was just the way God made him. I think that was the moment we really became good friends. He didn’t know it, but he taught my daughter to see through different eyes that day. I am grateful for his understanding and for his friendship!” (Gretchen Wilson, Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year, Billboard Music Awards Female Country Artist of the Year, Grammy Awards Best Country Female Vocal Performance,)

“Fred is one of those unique individuals that inspires not just a lot of fun nights on tour, but an inspiration in attitude for everyone he comes in contact with. He’s not quite as tall as most of us, but it sure doesn’t slow him down, and you don’t spend very much time with him before you realize if you see a handicap, it’s your problem, not his. I’m surely a better person for having known him.” (Kix Brooks of Brooks & Dunn, multiple Country Music Association Vocal Duo of the Year; multiple Academy of Country Music Top Vocal Duet, among many other awards)

“Fred has the greatest personality and is always easy to talk to. Fred never walks away from another person a stranger. He has a great outlook on life and lives it to the fullest. He is a true friend in every context possible.” (Ryan Newman, NASCAR Rookie of the Year, NASCAR Dale Earnhardt Toughest Driver)

“I met Fred at a NASCAR race of all places. We instantly became friends and now that I’ve read his story, I have more respect than ever for my giant buddy. He truly is awesome!” (Nick Swisher, New York Yankees)

“I met Fred on the set of The Celebrity Apprentice when he assisted John Rich with a challenge. At first I saw this sharply dressed diminutive guy with a giant smile and I wondered who he was there with. John Rich then introduced us. As you’ll read, Fred was born with a cleft palate and that gave us an immediate and unusual bond. One of my true passions is working with Operation Smile, a fantastic charity that supports kids born with cleft palates. Upon realizing this, Fred graciously offered to help any way he could, which blew me away. Crossing paths a few more times, I’ve realized there’s not much that can, or will, stop this guy!" (Donald Trump Jr.)

“I’ve been inspired over and over as I watch Fred never let his size deter him from anything. For a little dude, Fred lives as big a life as anyone I know. He is no doubt a force of nature. As for the rest of the legend of Two Foot Fred, I’ll let Fred do the telling in this book. He’s a brother and I love him.” (Big Kenny Alphin, Big & Rich)

“I met Fred several years ago in a VIP area at a Nashville venue. Unbeknownst to either of us, a few years later he would be appearing with Big & Rich as the opening act for two Bon Jovi shows in New Jersey. I hope this book inspires you as much as it and he inspire me!” (Richie Sambora, Bon Jovi guitarist, rock star)

“Every time I see Fred he tells me a new crazy story. I had no idea of the life he’s lived and I can see why he has his own book!” (Darius Rucker, award-winning country music star and lead singer of Hootie & the Blowfish)

“I was touched to learn in his book that my music got Fred through a hard time in his life. Since I’ve known Fred, he has a smile that I am always happy to see!” (Jewel, Grammy-nominated recording artist)

“Fred is an awesome American character and I can’t wait to read more of his story in his book. He has accomplished many feats that people would say are impossible. I’m a believer.” (Zac Brown, lead singer of the Zac Brown Band)

“I met Fred through my work with country music and was immediately impressed by his ‘joie de vivre’ and dedication to helping others, especially our war veterans. Fred is a true inspiration to me and many others!” (Hannah Storm, ESPN)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading this book about Fred Gill (Two Foot Fred). Fred grew up in the same town as I did and in the same area of town. I know alot of the same people that he did and this book brought back many good memories. I could not put the book down! I had forgotten about some people(our bus driver, Mr. Hackman)there could not have been a nicer man. I read the book within 4 days of receiving it. I laughed at some of the things he told about. I remember eating at his restaurants (both restaurants had really good food). I really enjoyed the book and would definately recommend it. Even if you did not grow up in Seymour, I think you will enjoy finding out all about Two Foot Fred. Good Job Fred!

This is a great book divulging the details of what it's like growing up in Seymore, IN. Fred is truly an inspiration overcoming the obstacles of being small but doing giant things in the world. Full of insight and humor!

Every time I get to see Fred he brings a smile to my face as well as everyone around him! He is such an incredible man that has touched so many lives and never lets challenges get in his way. I am incredibly blessed to call him a friend. I am so proud of him for his adventure as an author!

All the best,
