Review : Conquering adversity one step at a time by Larry Stansbury

Conquering adversity one step at a time

By Larry Stansbury

My Rating 5/5


It's a book that encourages young people to conquer their trials and tribulations. 

A collection of essays sharing stories of adulthood, overcoming friendships, rejection, and many more, while being a black man in America. Larry also talks about several things, like being a transfer student, what it's like being black in a fraternity, and life after college. This part memoir and creative nonfiction use Larry's stories to help others find their truth, be their own advocate, and not let others take away their power.

My Thoughts

Conquering Adversity One Step At A Time is a  collection of powerful stories of lessons learned and success gained by a combination of hard work, toughness gained through often-harsh life experience. The account is poignant, personal, and gripping. I was captivated by the end of the Preface. The author reveals himself and his pain in ways that are vulnerable and engaging. For every idea and insight he offers, he has a story from his own life. This makes the book believable and inspiring. Overall, this book has potentially life-changing value for anyone who resonates with Di Blaso’s experience.

What does taking a single step mean to you? Did you walk to work this morning, or simply walk to the car to drive to work? Did you walk to the kitchen to grab coffee or take the dog for a walk around the block? You probably take thousands of steps each day without realizing it because these steps are insignificant to you.
