In 1991 René Nielsen thought that he had life under control. His career as a major league handball player looked more promising than ever, his job was on track, and he had moved in with the woman of his dreams. But one night in April René’s life was suddenly and savagely pulled apart. That night he lost both his legs in an inexplicable train accident. With rare perseverance he fought his way out of bitterness. In spite of the accident he chased his dream and became one of Denmark’s premier athletes. But according to René Nielsen life’s great battles are not fought in the field, but inside yourself. Some of René’s strength can paradoxically be ascribed to a tough childhood, but also to a strong marriage with his high school sweetheart Helle, who is unfailing in her love for René – with and without his legs. Half a Man – a Whole Person is an immensely compelling, life-affirming, and very personal story about how a man and a human being may find himself and move on with life even if the unthinkable happens.

Bill Glose's HALF A MAN lays bare the impact of war on the individual soldier. The book's first half, about war and life in the military, tells of the sometimes harrowing, sometimes maddening, but always emotional experiences of soldiers in today's Army. The second half is about the baggage a soldier brings home with him and the opposing feelings that threaten to tear him apart: the guilt, the pride, the joy, the anger. Evocative, imagistic, and mesmerizing, replete with telling details and enriched by occasional humor, this collection of war poetry is a brilliant portrayal of what all those touched by war must cope with on both the battlefield and homefront.

Half A Man is a true story about 12 year-old Lindley's struggles to be accepted as a real man. It deals with the Federal Government's Foreclosure on unpaid loans made to New Mexico cattle ranchers to increase their meat production for soldiers in World War I. When the war ended, prices dropped and ranchers in the remote north western part of new Mexico who had no market for their beef, defaulted on their loans. David Stiles, Lindley's father, was persuaded to undertake the task of gathering steers to pay the government debts and drive them to the nearest railhead, Grants, New Mexico. Dave Stiles, veteran of many cattle drives in his youth, stipulated one request if he was to undertake the unpleasant job of foreclosing on his neighbor's cattle, namely, that his 12 year old son would be hired on for the effort. Buford Threlkedld, the Washington agent in charge reluctantly agreed that the boy could be put on the payroll, but shown as half a man, at half pay. Called, "kid" and "the boss's baby" and other belittlling names by Firpo, one of the cowboys on the crew, and assigned by his father, the boss, to such kid jobs" as tending the fire for the branding, helping the cook, getting up early to drive in the remuda of mounts for the crew, and driving the tail-ender drags of the herd, the boy sought ways to prove he was a real hand. His success was like a roller-coaster-like a boy one day; like a man on another. Down day came with his going to sleep and losing steers who hid in the brush and getting fired by the by the boss, being assigned to watch the horses while others drove the steers across the Chaco, doing a "girl's work" when helping the cook; openly crying when Tex's beautiful horse, Copper was lost to the quicksands, and getting tripped with his food plate by his enemy, Firpo, as well as his failure to eat rattlesnake meat, considered a test for being a cowboy. Highlights of his success were: being the boss of two other grown cowboys sent to gather the Macklin steers and exposing an attempt to hide animals to keep them from being taken, doing well on the old bay mare while crossing the Bisti, being asked by the boss to introduce the beautiful Frances to all the other hands, and finally being able to rescue Firpo when his hose fell with him during the stampede. Readers of Western Books will find action on every page. The descriptions of the round-up, and cattle drive will be applauded by the experts and enlightening to all who are unfamiliar with the details of organizing and executing a drive of 1500 steers to market. The description of how a small town, Grants, welcomed the coming of the cattle as a time to celebrate. "Half A Man is a jewel that should not be missed, I simply couldn't put it down", wrote the popular critic, Marc Simmons of the first printing.

All humans have weaknesses. Even mythical warriors and superheroes have a weakness. For author Brian Ray Gross, that weakness is food. This creates an interesting paradox: food is intended to strengthen, nourish, and sustain—but when we consume too much, we become weakened by it. In this weakness, we cannot be the people God intends for us to be. In Half the Man I Used to Be, Gross shares his story about food, weight, and his weight loss journey. He tells how it all came to head in October of 2012, when he found out that he was diabetic and that his liver was failing. He was at his weakest point, and he had a choice to make: he could continue to let the weakness dictate the rest of his life, or he could seek the strength to overcome. He chose the latter, and the kind of strength he needed could only come from God. This memoir discusses Gross’s lifestyle changes and his weight loss success. His story serves to communicate there is hope for all who face the same challenges. It’s not too late to regain the life you desire. You have a creator who made you in his image, and he wants the best for you. You can do this, and when you do, you’ll be glad you did.
