Inhaltsangabe

What are the odds? Statistics tell us that African-American males who grow up in a single-parent household are nine times more likely to drop out of high school and 20 times more likely to end up in prison than any other demographic. But what would it take for one young man not only to rise above those statistics but also become a Navy SEAL, actor, entrepreneur, writer, and successful husband and father?

In Transformed, Remi Adeleke takes you back to stories from his childhood, from living as Nigerian royalty to losing his father early in life and being financially stripped of everything by the Nigerian government. He delves into being raised by a single mother in the Bronx and doesn’t shy away from his illegal activities as a young man that threatened to derail his future. At every turn, including throughout his naval career, Adeleke found a way to overcome the odds, even when it didn’t make sense. His is an inspiring story of true personal transformation.

Very interesting story, good to listen to

I actually really liked Remi's story. It has certainly blood sweat and tears! He also talks about family and believing in God and how faith transformed his life. I found these to be a very nice aspects of the book. The reason why it's not a 5 star for me, is because I recently heard another seals' story, David Goggins book, and there it felt more like it is about believing in yourself and achieving something whereas in Remi's story I felt more like its a great story of a great guy who has very special genetics and come from a special family. But there is not so much of what I can take for myself in, being a normal person who does not have special genetics and high ranked family background. In Goggins book, not only did he come from a much harsher and worse background, had learning difficulties and not the best health, but also he gives practical steps as to how you can improve your own life despite where you come from and how you are treated. Rémi, on the other hand, was the son of a savant (that is, had great genes) and had before the death of his dad, a privileged early childhood who most people don't have, with a mum who took him to consume art and surrounded by rich investors and rich individuals. Yes, his father died but he came from a family which ingrained arts and education on him on an early age. The point is, if you know you are not the son or daughter of a genius, didn't come from rich parents who made great things and went through a bad childhood chances are that Goggins book are more inspiring and give more hope. The part where Remi's book is giving more hope in general is the part where he mentions spirituality. Still, the book is good and worth a read/listen.
