"Every generation has a voice, and one day I'm sure that a panel of pop-culture experts will choose one for my generation. But it will be too late for me, because I've already found one. He is the father of the words you are about to inhale." - Timothy McIlrath, Rise Against

Recommends it for: EVERYONE
A Life Deliberate is truely about someone who lives with sincerity and passion. It shows you just some of Christopher's highs and lows, rangeing from childhood stories to some that only a year (maybe less) old. He lives this way to prove to everyone it can be done, and to make us question ourselves as to why we aren't at least trying to emulate his ways. Because in the end, I think all that anyone wants is a deliberate life.

From this book I learned that I will never be through challenging myself

As insane as it is to believe, this is my first HeyChris book. I loved it just as much as I knew I would. There's something about the way that Chris writes that transcends a typical autobiography into something more, something impossible to give a name to. There are stories that made me laugh, stories that absolutely disgusted me, and stories that inspired me. Because that's the type of person Chris is.

I love this book it is now out of print but there is an exerpt up on his website Buy his stuff. support independent authors/artists.

I was listening to his little podcast (the deep end) which is explicit as are some of his stories and he said that "My First Hero" was his favorite story he'd ever written so I had to get it out and reread.

Dude is awesome.

It's just a book with little true life stories. the tagline to this book is
"tales of an unbreakable boy". And that is what it is.

oops! didn't read this, but i don't know how to delete it. I read A Deliberate Life!

In the same fashion Do-It-Yourself punk bands have built their fan base for the past 30 years, Chicago author Christopher Gutierrez has carved his own niche into the literary world relying on that same aesthetic. In the span of three short years, Gutierrez has gone from sporadic zine publisher and part-time blogger to full-time writer and public speaker, self-releasing 3 books, a spoken word CD, a ...more
