This full-color collection includes photography and childhood clippings provided by Connor and is a must-have for anyone inspired by his journey.


First off, I want to say that this is the first memoir I have ever read! And I loved it!  This book made me look at life in a different way, in a new perspective. The way he writes is truly inspirational.

What I especially loved about this story is how relatable it is. When a reader reads a new book, they want to be able to connect and relate to the main character and in this book, you can very much relate! He describes all the hardships he has faced in life but has learned to overcome them. Everyone has had those times when they felt this way and Connor’s insight really helps if your going through tough times.

Im usually not a fan of non-fiction but Im so glad I picked this up and read it!

Also, the pictures in this book are gorgeous! Connor’s photography is a another level of amazing. The images in the book really set the whole tone for the books and I really loved them!


Question: Why does life have to feel like such a struggle at times? Answer: Because without the struggle, the triumphs wouldn’t taste as sweet.”

“I would rather have 1 amazing best friend than 100 decent regular friends. It’s not about quantity, it’s about quality.”
