Even so, the central theme is larger than golf or any other sport. It's about doing what somebody else thinks you couldn't do, because of your very visible physical handicap. In D.J.'s case, the bodily challenge was cerebral palsy.
Some readers might anticipate comments bordering on self-pity, because Gregory was watching robust athletes enjoying the health he never had himself. Repeatedly, though, D.J. considers himself blessed, by a loving family, new friends he cultivated every week, and his innate determination to keep going.
In my brief video review, you'll hear some of D.J.'s most uplifting thoughts, such as his closing observation: "If my story can help someone else reach a little higher, run a little faster, try a little harder or stick with it a little longer, then every step I took will have been worth it."
Thanks, D.J. Gregory. Your book scored an ace with me.
