Beyond Belief is Josh Hamilton's testimony , describing what it was like ( to be a rising talent), what happened ( his fall into drugs) and what it is like now (his fight for survival and how he faced his demons).
For anyone who has experienced addictions or is close to an addict, this will be a very uplifting testimony. He is honest and doesn't pull punches. He provides hope for the addict, not criticizing the 12 step programs but acknowledging that Jesus Christ is his higher power.
The only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars is that it ends too soon. While it's obvious that Josh wants to pass his story along to anyone having the same troubles he has had, it would have been even more interesting to read this book after he had already retired. Case in point, last night, he hit a home run that nearly won the World Series for the Texas Rangers. As a fan of the game, I've followed his career since he wrote this book. However, after all he's been through, it would be interesting to hear his perspective on being a participant in the 2010 and 2011 World Series. Based on this book, I'm sure he never imagined he would someday have World Series stories to share.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick read, and is a must for any baseball fan.
I didn't get the impression it was written just to make a buck (though I could be wrong), as is sometimes the case with stars who fall from grace. Josh's story came across as genuine, and he continues to be open with his fans.
