You Are Worth It

It is hard to comprehend that I am, finally, able to create this post. I am grateful, humbled, and excited to announce my book, YOU ARE WORTH IT.

Last January, I approached Don Yaeger and Tiffany Brooks with eight of what I thought were good “chapter ideas.”

Since our first initial meeting and in the fifteen months since we have meticulously crafted a book that, I believe, will truly help people.

It’s a journey of more than any single person or experience. It is a journey that has evolved through years of struggle, self-reflection, support and love.

It shows that big battles are accomplished by small victories and that even the smallest of steps completes the grandest of journeys. It is a journey of the human spirit.

It travels through the feeling of blood and life leaving me to stories with homeless people and gang members to eating dinner on a dirt road deep in the heart of Mexico.

With the confidence, help and support of the HarperCollins & William Morrow family, I can’t wait to share You Are Worth It (Building A Life Worth Fighting For), available this October.

It’s time to impact the world. #YouAreWorthIt

Pre-order You Are Worth It today on HarperCollins or Amazon.

    Just saw you on Fox & Friends, announcing the release of the book, and was moved by your story and how the title came to be. May your story be read by countless people, and may your message take root in the hearts of those who read it.

    When you said these words “I sheltered and covered a grenade for my fellow Marine” on David Letterman, I cried. You are an incredible example of what a Marine is and it is only fitting that you would be recognized the way you have been. Congratulations on all your successes, I look forward to reading your book and meeting you some day. Semper Fi.

    We have met Kyle and I say to you again, as a fellow combat vet you are an inspiration. Beyond your service and your personal experiences you have kept you Marine brothers at the forefront of your writings and your affections.
    You are a special man whose parents and family should (and are) be immensely proud of the man and the Marine you are.
    Welcome Home and BZ
