    I was amazed at the author's ability to overcome his obstacles and rise to the heights of his success. The title of this book is Wherever I Wind Up. The author of the book is R.A Dickey. The book is a autobiography on the life of the author R.A. Dickey. The book is the story of the life of the author R.A. Dickey from his birth to the present. He is a professional baseball player who grew up in Nashville Tennessee and has achieved success despite much adversity throughout his entire life. The main theme of the book is that you should overcome adversity no matter what the obstacles or circumstances.
    The beginning of the book is his childhood and upbringing. In the book he says that everyone, including him, will face depressing elements in life and will face many difficult challenges. Overall, I thought that the book was very interesting. I thought that R.A. Dickey did a very good job of telling his life story. He is very descriptive in his stories and very thorough in his story telling, which makes the experience very good. The book talks about what you should do when faced with adversity. He suggests that you should rise above any depths of despair. I felt like the book covered a wide variety of issues. It didn't really leave out any major issues that R.A. Dickey faced in his life. He discussed issues that he faced in his life pretty well. The book was a good experience for me. It mad me root for R.A. Dickey. I wanted him to succeed and overcome his struggles in life. I thought that it was a really good book and a really good reading experience. The book is a good reading experience and an enjoyable book to read.

    Baseball fan..Definitely read this!

    One of the most honest and interesting baseball books out there. The ups and downs of Mr. Dickey's baseball career are incidental to the obstacles he had to overcome in his life....Enjoy this book.
