Dave Pelzer's incredible and inspiring life story has already captured the interest of more than one million readers. A Man Named Dave is the long-awaited conclusion to his trilogy in which he describes how he triumphed over years of physical and emotional abuse from his parents to become a self-accepting and confident adult. Readers of Pelzer's previous two bestsellers await this book--the first of Pelzer's books to be available in hardcover--to learn how he finally confronts his pathologically abusive mother and his neglectful, alcoholic father in an effort to turn a childhood marked by rejection and emotional abuse into an adulthood filled with love and acceptance.

Excellent conclusion to the biographical trilogy. Hard to believe he was so forgiving to his evil mother and passive father.

Great book. Not quite as good, in terms of enthralling read, as the first two but a good complete wrap of the trilogy. Glad to see Dave finally ended up happy after so many years of terror and betrayal.

An amazing story about an amazing man. We need more Dave's in this world. But not at the price he paid. Glad he found someone who appreciated him! Go Dave!

This is final in the trilogy of David. It tells the life of an individual who persisted against all odds and grew to be the person he deserved to be. An excellent read
