Shortly before he passed away, on January 4, 2015, Stuart Scott completed work on this memoir. It was both a labor of love and a love letter to life itself. Struck by appendiceal cancer in 2007, Stuart endured countless surgeries, enervating chemotherapies, and endless shuttling from home to hospital to office and back. He continued to defy fate, pushing himself through exercises and workout routines that kept him strong. He wanted to be there for his teenage daughters, Sydni and Taelor, not simply as their dad, but as an immutable example of determination and courage.
Long-time fans of the National Pastime have known Moyer's name for more than 25 years. But Moyer was just about finished as a big leaguer in his mid-20s until he fatefully encountered a gravel-voiced, highly confrontational sports psychologist named Harvey Dorfman. Listening to the "in-your face" insights of Dorfman, Moyer began to re-invent himself and reconstruct his approach to the game. Moyer shares this story in his memoir.
