Comeback based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Dave Dravecky writes in a compelling way about experiences that took him from the job he loved. I am not a sports fan, but I can share his story as a family member of another strong man who faced cancer. It is factual without getting stuck in despair and is inspiring without being naive.
Comeback is the intriguing auto-biography of the miraculous comeback of Dave Dravecky. He was a determined baseball player who started out at the bottom of the baseball food chain. From the beginning, he had always had a lump on his left arm (his pitching arm) and it only grew bigger as his career preceeded. When it began to give him shoulder pains, he decided he should get it checked out. The doctors told him he had to get the lump removed, which would interfere with his baseball career. Dave, however, was a determined man and went through countless housr of physical training and re-training his arm to pitch again after surgery and eventually came back to play in the major leagues again. I enjoyed this book because it is very inspirational and he is not afraid to share his faith in Jesus Christ. There is nothing bad I can really say about this great book. I would recommend that people read it because it inspires the reader to keep going, no matter what the circumstances and teaches the reader to reach for their dreams; no matter how far they may seem.
