Against All Odds: My Life of Hardship, Fast Breaks, and Second Chances

Model. I didn’t expect to read all of Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown’s memoir, Against All Odds. I thought it would be another shallow ghost-written campaign piece for a future run at political office by the guy with the truck who surprised a nation when he won an election. Instead, politics were absent for the first two-thirds of the book, in which Brown lays out a troubled childhood and difficult start to life. He became a competitor through practice and perseverance at basketball, and then at everything else he decided to do. This is some guy, and he has taken advantage of every break he’s gotten in life, including modeling, to make the most of it. He hustled for work (in a good way), and remained focused and dedicated to every task and objective he set for himself. Readers who like bootstrap stories will find this book enjoyable, and the subject affable and engaging.

Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
