Books Info:

Hey Dad, Remember Me? free pdf At age eleven, James "Bubba" Beck is ready to die. The cold steel barrel of a .357 revolver tastes metallic in his mouth-all he has to do is pull the trigger. Fortunately a visiting neighbor interrupts him. Bubba's father lies at the heart of the young boy's despair. Beneath a mask of good times and community service, Jimmy Beck is a volatile mix of fundamentalist fanaticism and rage, abusing his son both mentally and physically. The discovery of his son's suicide attempt gives Jimmy an epiphany-realizing his acts mirror the violence he endured at the hands of his own parents. Jimmy escaped his family at fourteen by lying about his age, enlisting in the army, and engaging in adventures across the country. Now, hearing of his son's brush with death, Jimmy realizes he's continuing the one thing he wanted to stop: his parents' violent legacy. Jimmy commits to change, starting father and son on a journey of healing and reconciliation, ultimately breaking the cycle of generational dysfunction. "Hey Dad, Remember Me?" is the true story of how James Beck and his father re-pattern their thinking and behavior to transform their relationship from one of abuse and anger to fondness and friendship. The road was long, and not without setbacks, but the reward is more than either could have anticipated. As a result of their progress, Bubba launched across America on an adventure of his own-to honor his father-called SerfBliss.

About James Andrew Beck

Born in Bremerton, Washington, on April 1, 1975, James Andrew Beck's childhood was defined by an abusive relationship with his father-a relationship the elder Beck eventually chose to confront to break the cycle of generational dysfunction. Beck graduated college with a degree in Religion in 1997, returning home to minister his childhood church. The need to tell his story prompted him to seek out writing groups and seminars, leading to a move to Los Angeles. In Los Angeles, Beck worked as a massage therapist. His abilities led to him performing bodywork for the NBC hit shows "American Gladiator "and "The Biggest Loser." On April 1, 2011, Beck gave his possessions away and traveled America to serve one family in every state. In return, he only asked that they pay it forward. His goal was to serve others in the same way his father served him, an epic adventure he dubbed SerfBliss. Beck is now creating an app that helps facilitate and tracks "Pay-It-Forward." He filmed his entire journey and is writing his next book that details his adventures. Currently, Beck speaks to schools, charities, universities, military groups, and businesses with a focus on re-patterning your mind and empowering your future. Now living in Orange County, California, Beck is married to Christina, a former air force fighter pilot.
