In a world that associates stature, physical perfection, and race with a person's value, Walking Tall: A Memoir About the Upside of Small and Other Stuff is about harnessing the power of self-worth as experienced by an African American, gay, Christian man who also just happens to be a dwarf. From early lessons in the deep south to escapades as Donald Duck at Walt Disney World to the Skittles-ridden cat and mouse games on his psychologist’s couch, and finally to the finish line of accepting and loving himself, Walking Tall is brisk reading, full of charm, and has a devilish sense of humor. For anyone who has ever felt the slightest bit uncomfortable in their own skin, has been afraid to wrestle personal demons into submission or may have missed the directional signs while walking their own road less travelled, Walking Tall is a globe-trotting journey to self-acceptance.
