How easy is to have it all and how easy is to throw it all away. When I got my hands on this wonderful memoir, I honestly had no idea what to expect of it, and I honestly had no clue of the man who has written it. But when I learned from positive reviews from positive people of what this man has gone through, I decided to give his written words a chance. Life is Not an Accident tells a very sad story of a very young man, a former Nba basketball player, who has done a lot of foolish things in his life, has taken a lot of bad decisions, and got injured very badly in the process of making them, because he didn't have enough courage and enough faith in himself, and eventually due to the nature of his horrible injury threw it all away. He had it all, he had everything, yet for some reason he lacked something. Something important. And that something ruined his basketball career and everything he has aspired to become. It's quite sad to read his story, it's most definitely not the best experience that you can get. But if you are a basketball player who struggles to make it in College basketball, and maybe some day aspires to play in Nba or overseas in Europe, then get your hands on this wonderful memoir, and learn from this man's mistakes, faults, and imperfections, for you never really know for when it might serve you right. You know, we've all done mistakes in our lives, and we've all done things that we're not proud of, and we've all done things that we would rather keep to ourselves and not share them with the world. This man has clearly done a lot of those, for what I sympathize with him, and he has clearly learned the true purpose of life. it's a real shame though that he has learned it off the court.
