In 1996, R.A. Dickey was the Texas Rangers' much-heralded No. 1 draft choice. Then, a routine physical revealed that his right elbow was missing its ulnar collateral ligament, and his lifelong dream?along with his $810,000 signing bonus?was ripped away. Yet despite being twice consigned to baseball's scrap heap, Dickey battled back. Today, he is the starting pitcher for the New York Mets and one of the National League's premier players.

If you need hope to press on; need encouragement; need a shot in the arm; need inspiration; need a smile; need someone to root for; if you need to get out of the miry pit that you may find yourself in - this book will spur you on; encourage you; and give you hope to press on.
R.A. Dickey - thanks for pressing on when all the odds were against you; thanks for your example of endurance, perseverance, integrity, and hard work. I've never seen a professional athlete that is so worthy of every thing you are achieving and receiving as a result of your efforts.
I can't recommend this book highly enough. I can almost guarantee that you will have a new favorite baseball player after reading this book - and a genuine hero that you can look up to in a society that needs more men and women like R.A. Dickey in all walks of life.
