5.0 out of 5 stars Very inspirational, March 14, 2012
This review is from: An XL Life: Staying Big at Half the Size (Hardcover)
I've listened to Big Boy since he first started at Power 106... I remember driving by his billboards and thinking, "wow... he's huge".... Then I remember seeing a picture of him after the surgery... Thinking, "wow... he's so skinny"... I was happy for him, but I was unaware of the struggles that came along with his surgery... He never mentioned it on air. This book really goes into detail about his struggles with the surgery. Everyone always makes it seem like it's an easy, quick fit process, yet it can really be life threatening.

I also enjoy how he discusses his past, growing up with nothing, being involved in the growth of west coast hip hop at a young age, and making his way to the top. Everyone is faced with life changing choices, Big is proof that making the right ones will lead to success. Very inspirational.
