"Imperfect" is a beautifully written autobiography about former Major League Baseball pitcher, Jim Abbott. Credit to Tim Brown, a baseball writer for Yahoo! Sports for assisting in polishing up this work and contributing to an excellent collection of thoughts, stories and feelings that everyone can relate to. The story is thought provoking...how Jim Abbott, born without a right hand...overcame many obstacles to make it to the Major Leagues. While much of the book focuses on that quest, there are stories and experiences that each of us can relate to. Weaknesses and obstacles whatever they might be in our own lives can be overcome. I was struck by the depth of these experiences and how Abbott dealt with them over a number of years and how the lessons he learned are applicable to all sorts of situations and types of people. Truly and excellent book, expertly written and real. A gem that I would highly recommend.
