Overview

"A very special story about life and love and courage."
MERLIN OLSEN, SPORTSCASTER
John Harding had a high-powered career, a loving wife, and a beautiful son. He's lost it all and has returned to his home town of Boland, New Hampshire, teetering on the brink of suicide. But an old friend asks John to manage his old Little League team, the Angels. Reluctantly, he agrees, and meets a hopeless player who bears a striking resemblance to his dead son—and through their extroardinary relationship, John finds the wisdom in living that he thought had slipped beyond his grasp forever....

The story of this boy is phenomenal. He treats everyday like its his last. Him and the coach make a perfect pair of friends. Og Mandino has a passion for getting the readers attention!!!!!

If I had listened to the professional critics who said I may be dissappointed with this book, I would have not read what has become one of my favorite Mandino treasures. At this time, I have no idea where my original 6 copies that I bought and handed out are any more. All I know is that everyone who I have given this book to, thank me and then ask if it's o.k. to lend it to someone. By far, a MUST read with a roll of paper towels beside you. Thanks OG!

We should all be reading this book to remind ourselves how important it is to reach out and help others. This is a very touching story that pulls at your heart strings. Quick and easy read. Great for when you want to just get away and dive into a good book.

This is the first self-help/inspirational novels i have ever read. My mother picked it up when she was working and since reading it, I've been hooked on Mandino. Great author and all his stories just makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside.

This is the best book I have ever read!! It really hits you in the heart!!! Makes you open your eyes and appreciate life and other things we all take for granted.

This book has some amasing wounders and understanding of the real world and can make one who thinks it is time to give up a reason to want to fight and just shows things can have a good ending in many way. it made me cry but than made me realise that life is a challenge and how one looks at the world isnt so diffrent then anothers. Also that one should always try and always believe that what they know others can do they can do also . If you read it you will see nothing is impossible!
