"Riveting, raw, redemptive, courageous, authentic, inspirational... these are just a few of the words that come to mind to describe this book. Mike takes you on a journey from his humble beginnings, through his many triumphs and disappointments in both his personal and professional life and ultimately to his realization of self-love and love of others. I strongly recommend this book to any man or woman who has ever struggled..."
Who is Mike Hill? For many years, he attempted to answer the question, to no avail. Hill was known to the world as the polished, versatile talent with multi-decade broadcast experience. After joining ESPN in 2004, Hill made a name for himself at the network, beginning at the highlight desk for ESPN News and later transitioning to some of the carrier's highest-priority programming, appearing as a host on SportsCenter, NFL Live, Baseball Tonight and NBA Tonight among others.
In August of 2013, Hill joined FOX Sports. The embodiment of professionalism, Hill appeared to be living the American Dream; however, his private, internal struggles were taking a toll on his ability to live and to love.
Eventually, the mounting trauma resulting from childhood memories of witnessing his mother victimized by domestic violence, a lack of proper and positive male influence, discovering that his stepfather was a murderer for hire, and the demise of two marriages, forced Hill to his breaking point. Amidst a silent cry for help and a quest to heal from within, Hill picked up his pen to chronicle the most prolific moments of his life and the lessons he learned.
