It is so rare for me to read an entire book. Especially in ONE day! This book is so raw, vulnerable, and inspirational all wrapped up into one. It’s like watching the best movie ever. You’ll walk away feeling all the feelings & knowing that you can accomplish anything. There’s also a good chance that you’ll look at other people with a lot more love, want to foster children for all the right reasons, and a strong desire to hold your loved ones a little closer.
It's not often you find a book that grabs you and keeps you wanting more. You can't put it down and look forward to the next day so you can pick it up where you left off. I have to say that this story is one for the books. A true story about a Man I met a few years ago, that conquered the unthinkable, and now makes a positive impact on this world every day. It's truly amazing what you can achieve no matter the odds against you. I read this 340 page book in 3 sittings.....and loved every second of it. If you're looking for a great book to read, that will inspire you, and give you a fresh sense of possibilities that we all can believe in.....grab this book either on Amazon Kindle for $.99 or buy the soft cover like I did. Enjoy the read.....Congrats to Jimmy Pop Colson for really putting out a great book. I am so grateful you made it through, and you really make me want to be the best person I can possibly be.

Has a great way of painting the picture of a young child scared and confused while maintaining empathy for his mom that put him in these situations. Couldn't put it down.
Amazing story of someone that never gave up despite every strike against him. This book helped me want to be a better parent and a better person. He did the job of sharing his story to help others. WOW!

Fantastic book! It covers a difficult subject that Colson handles with grace and dignity! Solid advice to help so many that are struggling with drug addiction or just life’s curveballs! This book will benefit so many that are striving to overcome a multitude of trials and tribulations! Thank you Jimmy Colson for baring your soul to help others! I commend you!
I couldn't put it down. It proves that your life doesn't have to be defined by your surroundings. No matter what you go through in your life, if you believe in yourself you can overcome anything. I was amazed how everything was put on the table, both good and bad. You can truly see that he is ashamed of his past but had the strength to write such a great book so other could see there is always hope. Perfect book to start the new year and open your eyes to the world around you.
Man this book is amazing. Being from Vegas and seeing alot of the same things happen to friends of mine brought me back to times that we're good and bad. Jimmy's journey is one of inspiration and shows you that any one individual can endure very hard times and learn so many life lessons within in order to better themselves and make their lives beneficial for not just themselves but the individuals they love aswell as others that still need love. I highly recommend everyone to read and enjoy this man's journey and appreciate his journey.

I read the entire book in two sittings as I could hardly put it down. Jimmy’s journey from a kid on street to a successful business owner who knows how to manage his demons shows how determination and hard work gave him and his community freedom. A great message just in time for the holidays
This is such an honest testimony with deeply moving detail! People don't often come out alive from such upbringing, much less on top. As you read, you can feel the hurt, smell the odors, hear the pain in the words; the heartbreak and yearning is palpable. I was filled with many emotions as I read this book, and my heart broke for Jimmy and his siblings. To live through such adversity and come out such a warm and giving human being says so much about the human spirit. Thank you for sharing your story, Jimmy! Wow!!
