about this item
Drawing from his own experiences of rural childhood poverty in Texas, to prominent roles as a government official, and now as an acclaimed educational leader, Dr. Ivery demonstrates his motivational gifts, as he seeks to inspire young men to live lives of purpose and integrity.
A father and grandfather, Dr. Ivery’s words are presented as a personal conversation with a young man, inviting him to stop for a moment and think about the path his life is taking, where he’d like it to lead, and how best to get there.
Whether it’s navigating the ups and downs of friendships and relationships; how to manage difficult emotions like frustration, anger or disappointment; or how to navigate challenges with self-confidence and control to achieve success, Dr. Ivery brings time-tested wisdom to the table. His voice is clear and direct, but more importantly—compassionate. He understands the struggles of young men and rises admirably to the challenge of communicating to their hearts.
