"From Adversity to University" tells a very captivating, brutally honest yet awe-inspiring story of the life of David King. In his book, King takes us back in time to his past as a deliquent, through vivid narrations of being a rebellious, unthinking youth which resulted him to ferry between one court trial to another. We were also given a spectacle of what it is like living in prison, where King was led to repentance through the pursuit of a new religious faith and a newfound academic goal.
King's book is a good investment for those in need of motivation and inspiration, as he successfully presents himself as a product of hope and perserverance through his story. As his book title suggests, King is indeed a living example of transformation as he discloses the secrets of his success in getting pass 'adversity' into a life of brilliant possibilities: 'University'. At the end of every chapter, (symbolising the different stages of his life) King also dedicated a reflection corner to parents, as he recognises parental negligence and the failure to communicate as key reasons for troubled youths, making his book an even worthier read.
