‘All those years you tried your best to break me, and I’m still here. One day you’ll see, I’m going to make something of myself.’ These words were Dave Pelzer’s declaration of independence to his mother, and they represented the ultimate act of self-reliance. Dave’s father never intervened as his mother abused him with shocking brutality, denying him food and clothing, torturing him in any way she could imagine. This was the woman who told her son she could kill him any time she wanted to–and nearly did. The more than two million readers of Pelzer’s New York Times and international bestselling memoirs know that he lived to tell his courageous story. With stunning generosity of spirit, Dave Pelzer invites readers on his journey to discover how he turned shame into pride and rejection into acceptance._x000D_

The third tale in David Pelzer’s autobiographical trilogy, A Man Named Dave is an inspiring story of terror, recovery, and hope experienced by the author throughout his life. Known for his work as a child abuse advocate, Pelzer has been commended by several U.S. presidents and international agencies, and his previous memoirs of growing up as an abused child (A Child Called ‘It’ and The Lost Boy) have touched thousands of lives. He provides living proof that we can ‘stop the cycle’ and lead fulfilling, rewarding lives full of healthy relationships. Ultimately triumphant, this book will have you living through the eyes of a terrified child, a struggling young man, and an adult finally forgiving his dying father–reading with tissues nearby is recommended. Ending with a touching conversation between the author and his own son, you’ll finish reading this with a warm heart and an enriched understanding of the need for compassion in all parts of life. –Jill Lightner –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title._x000D_
