    1. Dr. C. Moorer shares his own life experiences growing up in a crime-ridden neighborhood of Detroit, Michigan. Even though he's taken accelerated classes, 4.0 GPA, top of his class, and labeled as a 'nerd,' he knew that he needed a plan for his life regardless of people's approval or external validation. Our youth today is focused on the latest trends, popularity, and wealth-related accomplishments. He gives a prime example of how our elders survived on little education (father with third-grade e [...]

    5. We need life formations during these transitions in our lives and share a word, since we have a responsibility to share our testimony with us as this author did in his book.C Moorer also shares his calling on his life--not necessarily in a church or ministry, to become a doctor and share his testimony with the youth to those who are off track to get on track (is what spoke to my heart). "When God calls you, you will know it (it burns in your spirit and will not leave you until you set forth to d [...]

    6. Like many, I initially started reading this book due to Dr. Moorer's scholarship. I downloaded the Kindle version planning to read a few chapters at a time and ended up reading most of it in one sitting. Dr. Moorer takes readers on his uncommon path from flunking out of engineering school to becoming a professor. I found this to be an inspirational story and I'm glad I read it at this time in my education. His book does have a heavy religious slant which I have seen marked as a negative in other [...]

    7. First, I'd like to agree with other reviewers that this book is in desperate need of a copy editor. Basic typos, grammatical and syntactical errors were distracting from the work. I do, however, hope that the author will put forth a second edition, and would like to apply my review to the content of the book rather than its presentation. I found this book to be extremely encouraging and it helped propel me forward with my own doctoral studies. I read this book aloud to my two children, and I not [...]

    8. I read this book for a scholarship essay that I'm currently writing. Dr. C. Moorer led a very interesting life from failure to promise, as the title suggests. Throughout the book, I couldn't convince myself that he was not exaggerating some circumstances at some instances. Nevertheless, I enjoyed his story and the book as a whole. He details how he used his God-given talents as well as God in order to reach his goals in life of living a sacred and happy life. I learned many things that I can app [...]

    9. I really enjoyed reading this book which is an inspiring story of a man who during his earlier attempt to live his dream of becoming an engineer at a top auto firm didn't go quite as planned. During his time of perceived failure of flunking out of a top engineering school he in essence found himself and what he was truly passionate about. His journey coupled with his renewed relationship with God, his quest to live a life that is faith-centered and a career that would change not only his life bu [...]

    11. Excellent advice for studentsThere is a scholarship involved that seems to be yearly.I really wanted to read more about his struggles, but for some of my students the shorter length works to an advantage. I also liked his religious philosophy, but teachers should be aware of his Christian emphasis.

    12. I was expecting more of a story memoir. This was very dryly written and more informative about why college and getting an education is good. I wished the author had made the book more about his story and delved deeper and made it more entertaining. There was so much potential for this book and it fell flat.

    13. This book is very inspiring. It shows that God always has a plan for our lives, and what we have planned doesn't necessarily play into His plans. Also, a seeming failure doesn't prevent future success.

    14. I feel like this book was alright, but it could have been so much better. There were way too many typos, grammatical errors and formatting issues distracting me from the story. On top of that, the writing felt too technical at points. It still needs major refining.

    15. Great bookI read this book for a scholarship but it has taught me a lot through the reading. This is a must read!!!

    16. Read this book for a scholarship, it's definitely inspiring. Dr. Moore tells of his childhood and how he succeeded. Good book enjoyed it.

    17. I enjoy this book because I went through the similar experience. I learn that everyone success is different and no matter how long it takes you to get to the top, as long as you get there.
