Fighting for My Life Excerpt :

Mia St. John has always been on top of her game. A five-time world champion boxer known as The Knockout because of her ability to level any opponent charging toward her, Mia spent two decades in the spotlight transforming her body into the ultimate fighting machine. But what most people don’t know is that outside the ring, she was battling a lifetime of demons while struggling to keep her family together. Born to a Mexican mother and white father, she spent her young life feeling like an outsider while growing up in Idaho. She fled to California as soon as she was eighteen and left behind the abuse that came with an alcoholic father. Determined to show everyone she was a champion, Mia moved to Los Angeles to follow her dreams—and ended up meeting the love of her life, television star Kristoff St. John. Together, they created a beautiful family with their children, Julian and Paris, while doing their best to battle their own bouts with addiction. Mia’s memoir takes readers through her odyssey of grief and despair, but always the fighter, Mia gets up once again and shows the world how to face another day with dignity and determination to live the best life possible.

The Fight of My Life Excerpt :

“I CAN’T BREATHE!” These were the last words of more than a half-million people in America who contracted the deadly Coronavirus. Ironically, they were also among the last words of Mr. George Floyd, an African-American man murdered by Derek Chauvin, a white police officer who knelt on Mr. Floyd’s neck for eight minutes and forty-six seconds. Was it merely a coincidence that these same words were uttered in both instances? Was there a connection on some deeper, abstract level that should have served as a wake-up call for the United States of America? In 2020, two deadly viruses swept the nation: a new virus known as “COVID-19” and one centuries-old virus called “Racism.” The Fight of My Life: The Coronavirus: A Dance with the Devil is an inspirational tale of one man’s fight and path to victory over two invisible and deadly enemies.

You Can Fight For Your Life Excerpt :

The reason why clinical science has not solved the riddle of cancer may not lie totally within the realm of the laboratory. It may lie in part in the mind and emotions of the patient. After two decades of research and psychotherapeutic work with cancer patients, Lawrence LeShan offers new evidence and startling insights into why some individuals get cancer while others do not--and why some are able to fight successfully for their lives while others rapidly succumb to the disease. Dr. LeShan has accumulated strong evidence that the mind can make the body receptive to cancer--and that the mind is also capable of fighting back. This is a book of hope. For while cancer kills, it can also be killed. You Can Fight For Your Life is a major humanistic work by an author with a passionate commitment to life.

How We Fight for Our Lives Excerpt :

From award-winning poet Saeed Jones, How We Fight for Our Lives—winner of the Kirkus Prize and the Stonewall Book Award—is a “moving, bracingly honest memoir” (The New York Times Book Review) written at the crossroads of sex, race, and power. One of the best books of the year as selected by The New York Times; The Washington Post; NPR; Time; The New Yorker; O, The Oprah Magazine; Harper’s Bazaar; Elle; BuzzFeed; Goodreads; and many more. “People don’t just happen,” writes Saeed Jones. “We sacrifice former versions of ourselves. We sacrifice the people who dared to raise us. The ‘I’ it seems doesn’t exist until we are able to say, ‘I am no longer yours.’” Haunted and haunting, How We Fight for Our Lives is a stunning coming-of-age memoir about a young, black, gay man from the South as he fights to carve out a place for himself, within his family, within his country, within his own hopes, desires, and fears. Through a series of vignettes that chart a course across the American landscape, Jones draws readers into his boyhood and adolescence—into tumultuous relationships with his family, into passing flings with lovers, friends, and strangers. Each piece builds into a larger examination of race and queerness, power and vulnerability, love and grief: a portrait of what we all do for one another—and to one another—as we fight to become ourselves. An award-winning poet, Jones has developed a style that’s as beautiful as it is powerful—a voice that’s by turns a river, a blues, and a nightscape set ablaze. How We Fight for Our Lives is a one-of-a-kind memoir and a book that cements Saeed Jones as an essential writer for our time.

The Fight of My Life Is Wrapped Up in My Father Excerpt :

Description Drexel fondly recalls his beautiful childhood, which was spent in a small over the hill community in The Bahamas call Montell Heights. Even though they were poor, yet those were the best years of his life. However, one day his life was shattered into a million little pieces, when his father walked out on them never to return. Soon thereafter, his father would attempt to kill his entire family. These events turned Drexel into a quiet but angry teenager, who violently rebelled against the system. Yet he was discovering that he was not alone in his feelings. Through interviews with drug dealers, prolific armed robbers, gang leaders, and convicted murderers, the pieces slowly began to fall into place. It became painfully obvious that they all were looking for the same things, to be accepted, to belong, and above all, to be love. Yet in the gang they found all of that and more, for the gang became the family they always wanted. Then one day without warning, their gang exploded in a furious internal war. Drexel now found himself desperately fighting for his life against friends, and a leader who was not only violent, ruthless, and brutal, but more strategically clever about the cold art of war. He ordered a hit on Drexel's life, and was there in person to witness him gun down in a hail of bullets. In this book "The fight of My Life is Wrapped Up in My Father," some seven years later after losing his sight in a foiled arm robbery attempt, Drexel sits down with this notorious gang leader. As well as other individuals from rival gangs. It was then that he discovered that they all shared a common bond of neglect, rejection and fatherlessness. Thus, in their quest to be loved, accepted and appreciated they created a world of their own, a world of senseless violence and murder. As they each reveal what lured them into a life of crime and street gangs, the solutions to our social ills and crime problems can be found in their stories. As we journey with them from inno

Fight of My Life Excerpt :

What happens when a black man in America doesn't have the coping and problem-solving skills to deal with the burden that his environment had placed upon him? He stays stuck in survival mode. Once upon a time on the eastside of Detroit was a kid who dared to dream much bigger than his circumstances. Born to a mother with limited education and a father he barely knew, it wasn't long before he realized just what the world thought of people like him. Being a young black male in the '90s made him a target of hate and an assumed statistic in the eyes of many. For years he would walk that path carved out for him. What no one counted on is that when that kid was thrown into the streets with the wolves he would take every scar, every battle, every war, every win, and every loss and use it all to fuel the engine that would drive him out of dangerous and cutthroat life of crime and into a world of fiction writing. The Fight of My Life book is not a rags to riches story, but a journey of street life, self-discovery, divine intervention, and purpose. When God saves you from yourself and your enemies too many times to count, at some point you have to bow to His mercy and tell the world of His greatness. This ride is not for the weak, and when it over my only hope is that I've inspired someone to change.
