For Sports Fans Only

Not what I expected from a book purportedly about life with DID, this memoir provided tons of detail about how to become a great athlete after being an overweight child who suffered the taunts and physical attacks of schoolmates in the rural South. Disappointingly sparing were any details about Mr. Walker's actual experiences with dissociation and the consequences of it. Perhaps this was the author's Intent -- to write a book about devotion to physical fitness and Christianity -- but it leaves readers almost clueless about what it is like to live as a person diagnosed with the largely misunderstood condition of dissociative identity disorder. On the other hand, if you're looking/listening for a motivational story with this author's biases, you will likely enjoy the book.

unpleasant surprise

did not realize he was a man of "faith" which is fine BUT I didn't think he would talking about it the entire book. I do not know sports that much but was looking for a book to better understand D.I.D....unfortunetly I got more of a have faith and God is still good. only made it halfway through chapter 5 before I decided to give up on the book having insite for ppl who aren't "faith" minded. But if you are a Christian this book sounds very encouraging I'm sure.
