A Memoir of Charlie Daniels
Charlie Daniels presents a life lesson for all of us in this book. The book is about his life, the struggles of his career and his personal opinions. Charlie shares his early years when he first decided to make music his life dream and the early experiences he had to make that dream come true. Along his way he met a lot of people, many that you will recognize their names and how they were a help to him. It was not an easy road, but he had a dream and stuck to it and became very successful. He life had good moments and bad moments- a failed marriage, the death of his father while still a young man, the death of his mother, arm injuries that could have ended his dream and financial problems. He has met many different people of the world, from authors to celebs, and has performed around the world. His dream took him to all points of show business, music, movies, television and radio.
The book is written in an easy to read format, with short chapters making it very easy to follow his life. There are a couple chapters that really stood out to me. One was when he was describing his faith in God and sharing what he believes. Another was his political thought and how he felt when 9-11 happen.
I think this is a book worth sharing and has a lot of information that would be of interest to all and could help some that have dreams and how one man found his career dreams come true.
