The story seemed awfully familiar. :)
Man Shoes is an inspirational story about a man who was a neglected and abused as a child. He grew to see his worth as a person of possibilities ONLY when some very special people helped him grow into his "Man Shoes". I enjoyed this book. It is very emotional, so make sure to grab some tissues before reading! I laughed, cried, then laughed and cried some more (my kids were concerned until I told them I was reading a very good book).

I had the pleasure of meeting the author of this book Tom Watson in person and hear him speak at an event. He is so kind and so inspiring! It was such an honour to meet him.

His story is so moving. I could not put this book down. I loved this book! READ IT!

It's a great book and an inspiring read. I'd recommend it to anyone, but especially to men. Tom's own entertaining stories will motivate you in your own life. This one's a keeper! Larry Eide
One of the most honest books I have read in a while. Tom shares his heart, struggles and experiences in a very thoughtful and challenging way.
