9780062015556: Against All Odds: My Life of Hardship, Fast Breaks, and Second Chances

Against All Odds is the extraordinary personal story of the man who rose up to meet the challenge of terrific opposition and become one of America's most promising new political figures—Senator Scott Brown. Brown is famous for succeeding popular Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy after Kennedy’s death in 2010—but, as he reveals in a compelling memoir reminiscent of Sarah Palin’s Going Rogue and Clarence Thomas’s My Grandfather’s Son, his experiences with struggle and achievement go back a lifetime.

From the Back Cover:

Scott Brown’s greatest win did not occur on a cold January election night in 2010 when he came from behind to capture the U.S. Senate seat held by Ted Kennedy for nearly fifty years. It began when he survived a savage beating at the drunken hands of a stepfather when he was barely six years old while trying to protect his mother.

In this gripping memoir of resilience and redemption, written with clear-eyed conviction and unflinching candor, Brown recalls his difficult childhood marked by innumerable hardships. He tells the story of how basketball showed him the way out of family chaos. Later, as a law student and member of the Massachusetts National Guard, he was picked as Cosmopolitan’s “America’s Sexiest Man” and vaulted into the glamorous world of New York modeling. But the man who was once ushered into the backrooms of Studio 54 returned to Massachusetts to raise a family, and soon found an unlikely path that would lead him to national political stardom.

Poignant, heartfelt, humorous, and profound—including details from the unprecedented Senate race and victory that captured the country’s imagination—this is the story of one man’s dream and determination to fight for a better future.

About the Author:

U.S. Senator Scott Brown was elected by the people of Massachusetts on January 19, 2010, to fill the term of the late senator Ted Kennedy. He lives in Wrentham, Massachusetts, with his wife, Gail, and they have two daughters, Ayla and Arianna.
