Everyone needs a second chance, even if your name is George Foreman.

"My second chance arrived unexpectedly in a Puerto Rican dressing room after a heavyweight boxing match. What happened to me in that room is so incredibly bizarre, it's unlikely you've ever before read anything like it. Simply stated, I died and went to the other side. The experience impacted me so profoun

it would have been better to include third parties perspectives as references or at the very least to validate his claims. last few chapters detailing his journey to the championship were great. a very entertaining, funny and very inspiring.
A man of remarkable character and wisdom.

Before George Foreman came to faith in Christ, he was a mean, mean, man. Before His conversion, you could hardly ever find him smiling. After his conversion, you can hardly ever find him not smiling. In this wonderful book he tells you why he's always smiling. God is in his corner. He pastors a really small church, and chooses to keep it small. George seems to have a genuine servant heart. I highly recommend his book.
I knew George Foreman was an ordained minister, but didn't know the story behind him accepting Jesus as his savior. This was a good retelling of his upbringing in abject poverty, how he got into trouble as a young boy and wasn't living right as a young heavyweight champion, and then had a conversion experience during one of his fights in 1977, and how it changed his life.
Who would have thought that I would ever read a book by & about a Heavyweight Boxer. This book really was fantastic. George Foreman tells about an experience he had where his career and life were altered as he accepted religion. His views on life and relationships became so focused and you can tell as you read, that he is a genuinely good and decent person.
Its strange to read an 'autobiography' and get to the end thinking "there wasn't enough about the author in there." The trouble is, while I appreciate that George Foreman is a fine fellow, and while I belive that most of the content is important; that doesn't make it terribly interesting. And I'm not sure exactly who would find it so.

George Foreman had an interesting spiritual experience that changed his life. I enjoyed reading about him and learning something about his life as a boxer. Before reading this book, I knew him only in regard to the George Foreman grill. It was a worthwhile read.
What can I say - I enjoy boxing (Mixed Martial Arts) and I was actually very entertained in this book. I was surprised to see what a Christian Foreman is, and his laugh and smile even come across in the story.
I heard about it briefly on 700 Club and had a desire to read his memoir. I enjoyed it and the pictures...and how he came with the George Foreman Grill that I love so dearly.

Surprising, insightful, and enjoyable biography of George Foreman with emphasis on his spiritual journey.
