Overview

Former NBA All-Star Jayson Williams' charisma, generosity and high-energy hustle made him one of America's most popular pro athletes during the 90s, and eventually landed him a remarkable $86 million contract with the New Jersey Nets. Referred to as "The People's Player," Jayson's magnetic appeal and tenacity on the boards made him a fierce, yet beloved competitor who spent his time off court flying planes, building houses, and tending to the chores on the farm with his father. His easy charm and sidesplitting one-liners consistently landed him on NBA sportswriters' All-Interview team and made him an audience favorite on the media circuits. But few knew the depths of pain, tragedy and addiction masked by a smile his grandmother called his "most beautiful attire."
Lying on his bunk amongst "the most confrontational bunch of misfits," Jayson recalls his rapid climb and mighty fall, and his father's wise words: "A lifetime of happiness as you know it, Jayson, no man alive could bear it. It would be hell on earth. You have to stick to your morning routine."
From the New York Times bestselling author of Loose Balls, Humbled is a powerful and candid collection of Jayson's personal letters and journals from behind bars. Shocking revelations, surprising connections, shameful secrets, and scars that only God can heal-Jayson holds nothing back as he writes about his journey to faith on both sides of the barbed-wire fences.

    I bought my copy on another site but had to stop by and say thanks to jayson williams for being so honest. i've been going through a really rough time and i've been crying for the past half over i'm not sure what? but i was reading the chapter about your shoulders being built for this (or something like that) and that's just how i feel. just wanted to say thank you for writing this. i will be sure to spread the word. good luck to you.

    An undeniably "Humbling" piece of literature. To sit, read,
    and bare witness to a person's spiritual and emotional journey back to
    God and back to himself is a undoubtedly familiar experience that most
    people can relate to. Jayson is a genuinely good person whom lost
    himself in the nature of others, and this book was the journal he kept
    of his trip back. I was Humbled BY "Humbled" ! Excellent work
    Mr. Williams .

    It's worth it!

    This book is a real life testimony on how God can change things. The beauty of the book is that it was written by someone who was put through a test in order to have an amazing testimony. The stories are real, and any person who believes in the power of God will enjoy this read!

    In trying times it is a great pleasure to read such a story that starts and ends with great emotions. I hope people can truly understand the man Mr Williams is and will always be. I cried, laughed and went through a variety of emotions after reading this book and left with one thought. God is great and continues to work wonders.. Thank you Mr. Williams for letting us into your heart and still believing!!

    Jaysoar's story Part 2

    Jaykit, along with Whitekit and Snowkit, raced out of the nursery, followed by Ratwhisker, their mother, and Splashfeather, their father. Jaykit looked at the leader, her amber eyes shimmering. She turned to see if Snowkit and Whitekit are excited too, but they didn't show a smile. They somehow didn't feel so happy or impatient; they looked like it was the total oppisite. 'Why aren't they so happy?' Haykit wondered but not for long. Ratwhisker and Splashfeather stand between them with pride. Then, Jaykit caught a glimpse of different clan cats. Jaykit reconize most of them, but couldn't make out the others. The leader narrowed his eyes on the tortoiseshell and gave a nod to her as he cimbs up the highrock. "During this time, we are ready for three new apprentices." He boomed. Snowkit came up first, still he doesn't look to happy. "Snowkit," the leader continued. "From this day forth, until you earn your warrior name, you will be known as Snowpaw." Then the leader narrowed his eyes on the crowd. "Talonfeather," he continued. "This your first apprentice. Teach him all you've learn from Tawnyfur." Talonfeather, a golden tom with blue eyes, stepped out of the ground and touch noses with Snowpaw. "Thank you, Stonestar." He replied with a tone voice. Then, Whitekit came next. "Whitekit," Stonestar spoke. "Yo will be known as Whtepaw." Then, he search the crowd once more. "Tigerstripe," Stonestar continued. "You have train Tallwing, so yu are ready for your second apprentice. Teach her all you have taught to Tallwing." Tigerstripe, a black tom with brown stripes, came up and touches nose with Whitepaw. "You will be a great warrior just like Tallwing." Tigerstripe murmured to her. Then, Jaykit steps forward. 'Oh, Starclan! Thank you!' She thought. Stonestar nodded and meowed, "here is our last kit who is ready. Jaykit, you will be known as Jaypaw." Stonestar searched the crowd. "Redpool, you are ready for your first apprentice. Teach her all you learned from Featherclaw." Redpool, a reddish-orange tom with green eyes came up to her and touch noses. "Snowpaw! Whitepaw! Jaypaw! Snowpaw! Whitepaw! Jaypaw!" The voices of her clanmates echoes through her mind. 'Jaypaw...' she thought in glory. I THINK I GOT THE WHOLE SPEECH WRONG, BUT I DID MY BEST, THOUGH. PART THREE WILL BE COMING SOON!!!!!!!!!!!
