This book kind of surprised me. I decided to read this memoir, without expectations, mainly just knowing of this writer through his poetry. His memoir left me with a mixture of emotions, from page to page, especially with my not being able to "guess" what might be happening next. I've never read anything quite like this, and then to keep remembering that is someone's truth--it's deep stuff. Talk about a survivor--someone who's greatness is birthed through such pain and hardship. One Chance To Be a Man has really touched my heart. It's a powerful read, and I appreciate D. Revolution allows us in to view the footage of his life. Now, when's the film coming out???
I am quite impressed with the author's ability to write taking me as the reader into his world. It's easy reading with just enough details. I often had to remind myself that this is not one of those "stories" of fantasy that I am used to reading but this is a part of someone's real life. So kudos to the author of the book! D-Rev and his writing abilities are awesome. I definitely look forward to reading more to come.
"One Chance To Be A Man" gives an in-depth account of the author's journey from boyhood to manhood. It is filled with gritty accounts of life altering situations. Every page is filled with drama, intrigue, and the will to survive. You will not want to put this book down until you have read the very last page.I highly recommend you get this book today and get started on this exciting literary journey. It is a great book. I loved every minute of it!
This book was, raw, passionate and heartfelt! At times it was bold and gritty! The grit, the tragedies, the trials and tribulations, give the reader a front seat into the authors hustle ability, survivalist mentality, vulnerability, internal conflict and search for his true self and calling! Great read!
One chance to be a man is a quick read. Read it in only two sittings, do not let that fool you that it’s an easy read. Gritty and real, it offers insight on the plight of growing up in a harsh environment and the realizations and actions to make it out of that environment successfully. I would definitely recommend it.
I found this book to be so compelling, frank and revealing. This is what real life looks like. Too often we take too much for granted. I have known him his whole life and there is only one word to describe him and that is Overcomer. Well done Nephew, well done!
One Chance To Be A Man by D. Revolution is a story of life, of woe, survival, being complacent, success and growth….his life. This book kept me fully engaged and wondering what he would do next and/or what would happen next. We experience many points in his life and a few of those of his family members. Some I could understand, some I had to accept as is. It took me through a range of emotions and frustrations and I was glad when he started on HIS path. D. Revolution penned a story that was so real that one could see this story as it happened. It even answered a thing or two about men that I was curious of. Thank you for sharing and wishes for the best always.
