Book Overview

A Man Named Dave, which has sold over 1 million copies, is the gripping conclusion to Dave Pelzer's inspirational and New York Times bestselling trilogy of memoirs that began with A Child Called It and The Lost Boy.

All those years you tried your best to break me, and I'm still here. One day you'll see, I'm going to make something of myself. These words were Dave Pelzer's declaration of independence to his mother, and they represented the ultimate act of self-reliance. Dave's father never intervened as his mother abused him with shocking brutality, denying him food and clothing, torturing him in any way she could imagine. This was the woman who told her son she could kill him any time she wanted to--and nearly did.

The more than two million readers of Pelzer's New York Times and international bestselling memoirs A Child Called It and The Lost Boy know that he lived to tell his courageous story. With stunning generosity of spirit, Dave Pelzer invites readers on his journey to discover how he turned shame into pride and rejection into acceptance.

   A must read! Highly recommended!
I finished this book about 20 minutes ago. During the last two weeks, I read all 3 books in this series. My heart broke during the first book, as I read a tragic story that no child should ever have to experience. During the second book, I cheered Pelzer on as he was slowly recovering and sometimes even enjoying life. I almost didn 't read the 3rd book in the series, because I was confident that Pelzer's life turned out well. I, however, couldn 't stop myself from wanting to know how it ended. It is a terrible ending to a wonderful childhood. Pelzer has an incredible story and I feel that I have become a better person by reading it. Pelzer's story is something that I will never forget. Though I don 't know him personally, I feel honored to have read his books.
   Great Book!
After reading The Lost Boy and a child named it, I felt so compelled to read this book. All three retained my interest completely and I would highly recommend all three.
Happy to read about what happened to Eve after she was released from foster care and became a man after being so badly abused as a child. Compelling a true story. He read all his books and the one by his brother Richard.

This was Avery's good book and very inspirational, it shows that anyone can overcome anything, no matter what kind of hand you dealt with.
This book is undoubtedly one of the good ones. I love the prices compared to new books and the quality of the books seems very accurate, as is stated in the listings. For its content, I highly recommend this book.
   What an inspiration!
I read all of Dave's books and continue to be amazed at the power of the human spirit. He shows us how to do the seemingly impossible. Those who suffer from abuse, and those from other negative circumstances.
   book #3
I read this book in a day. When I first started it, I thought it was just a repeat of Book 1. I am glad that I bought this book.
   A Man Called Dave
I read this one too. i had the whole series but my books were destroyed by mold so I don't have them anymore. And it's been a long while when I read this one too. I think it him reflecting on his life, I think he also went to therapy for help dealing with his life. I can't remember if he had a family, but if he did he made sure not to repeat what happen in his life not to put his family through it. But do remember he made a lot of reflections about his life and that everyone along the way to help him adjust his life, very appreciative.
   Simply amazing.
As someone on their recovery journey, I was suggested by my therapist to read Dave Pelzer's books, and now I see why. I now know my direction in life is to follow Pelzer's example. I know that my meaning in life is to add light to this world, light that comes from my own negative life experiences for the sake of freeing others from their own. While I still feel confused and lost in my own personal trauma, this book led me to see the “indomitable human spirit ” in myself and in myself as a child of abuse and neglect. Dave Pelzer gave me a flashlight so that I can find my light too, and I am now beaming at the dream of doing the same for others from now on D.
I read Dave's first two books, A Child Called It and The Lost Boy, and continued with this book to find out about his life as an adult. He is truly an inspiration for all. So proud of his achievements! He taught us to never give up, no matter what the situation.
