About the Author

Dave Pelzer is recognised as one of America's most effective and respected communicators addressing corporations, conventions and health/psychology/primary care workers. His unique accomplishments have garnered personal commendations from Ronald Reagan and George Bush. He was selected as a torchbearer for the 1996 Olympic Torch relay. He has dedicated his life to helping others help themselves.Previous titles:Help Yourself (TPB May 07, Penguin);The Privilege of Youth (Penguin);My Story;A Man Called Dave;The Lost Boy;A Child Called It


While many self-help gurus claim to have influenced millions of people's lives, Pelzer actually has. A Child Called "It," his best-selling memoir about surviving a horrifically abusive upbringing, has practically become a textbook in high schools across the country. Here, he also strives to help readers become successful against the odds, touting a commonsense yet compelling message: believe in yourself, let go of the past, take responsibility, and have faith. The mostly three-part chapters elaborate on his philosophy, share anecdotes from his life, and feature a list of questions for readers to ask themselves about the chapter's teachings. Pelzer's writing style is a long way from elegant. Conjuring the military man he was, it is straightforward and commanding, reflecting the years Pelzer has spent analyzing his past in order to clear it away. The strength of this book is his character: his ability to overcome and imbue others with hope. Recommended for all public libraries, especially where Pelzer's previous books were popular.--Mary E.
